Every Sunday night before I went to sleep I would tune my radio to the Dr. Demento Show. For those of you who do not know Dr. Demento, he had a two hour radio show that featured… well… basically wacky songs. That was my first exposure to musical artists such Wierd Al Yankovic and Spike Jones.
I use to record his shows onto 8 track tapes. I wish I still had those.
I think my all time favorite was Mr. Wizard who was doing the science experiment with Timmy. Let’s see if we can come up with a top 10.
- Mr. Wizard and Timmy
- Dungeons and Dragons – Dead Alewives
- They are coming to take me away
- Shaving Cream
- Existential Blues
- Space Invaders
- Fish Heads
- Pencil Neck Geek
- Monty Python’s Spam
- Yoda by Wierd Al
There were a lot of them but these stick out for me. How about you? What would be your top 10?
