One Last Polka 2017

Tue, 02 Jan 2018 23:16:47 +0000

Whether or not your 2017 was the greatest year ever or the coming together of all your worst nightmares, there is one thing we can say for it…it’s over! But before we kick it to the curb for our shiny, new 2018 upgrade, let’s take a look at this year’s Doctor Demento Funny 25 and […]



Time Flies When You’re Having Funny 25’s

Mon, 02 Jan 2017 22:54:50 +0000

I just realized that this is the 15th time I have cataloged points for the Top 100 (or so) Demented Hits from Doctor Demento’s annual Funny 25. Fifteen years is just a small slice of the 40+ countdowns the good Doctor has given us, but it’s a good chunk of time. So, in honor of […]



Bad Hombres, Nasty Women and other SOB’s

Mon, 02 Jan 2017 17:29:52 +0000

It’s time once again for the annual update to the list of Dr. Demento’s TOP 100 (or so) DEMENTED HITS (from Funny 25’s). This year featured plenty of Donald Trump parodies from Bad Hombres, Nasty Women to The Donald Trump Club March to Donald Trump’s Hair (which was written long before the recent election unpleasantness). […]



Update on recording progress

Mon, 07 Mar 2016 19:56:06 +0000

The short answer: “not much” The long answer is that I worked on Catch the Wind for a long time, but I couldn’t get anything out of it that didn’t bore me to tears. Then I went out of town. I am still plugging away, and I’d like to think that something will come out of this […]



I feel the eyes of Aesop on me*

Sun, 31 Jan 2016 00:31:24 +0000

I feel exhilarated, nervous, excited, wary, accomplished and hungry (it is past suppertime after all). I spent the afternoon laying down rhythm guitar tracks for seven songs. No, not thinking about doing some songs. Not just talking about it. Actually pushing the button on the record machine and playing the guitar into a bona fide […]



A man with priorities so far out of whack doesn’t deserve such a fine automobile.

Sun, 17 Jan 2016 14:00:21 +0000

I was listening to Car Talk this morning (we miss you, Tom!), and one of the callers said that he had 103 cars in his lifetime. That got my brain gears whirring, and I thought I would reminisce about the series of vehicles that have graced me with their presence in the last 35 years. First […]



It helps me unwind and sometimes it makes me feel mellow

Fri, 15 Jan 2016 03:20:00 +0000

On my evening walks with Venita, we generally chat about the ebb and flow of the day, the latest pop culture thingy, plans for the future…or, actually, I blather on about stupid shit that comes into my head, and she pretends to listen. A cool feature of our walking relationship, though, is that we don’t […]



Funny 25 – A New Hope

Wed, 30 Dec 2015 12:57:08 +0000

A long time ago, on a blog far, far away…I began tracking Doctor Demento’s Funny 25. And, lo, I am still trying to do so…but, wait, there is no try. Do or do not! Therefore, here is me do doing. Steve Goodie seems to have taken over this year’s list, as he’s featured on six […]



The 13th Annual “All Weird” Funny 25

Mon, 29 Dec 2014 13:00:55 +0000

Yep, this is the 13th time I’ve recapped the good Doctor’s annual Funny 25 and updated my TOP 100 (or so) DEMENTED HITS (from Funny 25’s). This year it looks like our old pal, Weird Al, has taken over the show. Mr. Yankovic has 20 percent of the songs on the countdown, including the #3 hit. That’s […]



90 Years of “Top 40” Music: All That Jazz (1926-1929)

Wed, 17 Dec 2014 22:49:37 +0000

The way radio worked changed rapidly in the 1920’s. Two things served to organize the landscape of radio and to broaden its reach as a unified force across the country. In 1926, the National Broadcasting Company (NBC) was formed by the Radio Corporation of America (RCA), General Electric (GE) and Westinghouse Electric to become the first […]
