How can I buy recordings heard on the Dr. Demento Show?
Many of the most-requested songs are on my various Rhino label CD's and
tapes, available in stores or from my store.
Lots more are on the Basement Tapes CDs and cassettes available
exclusively to members of the Demento Society.
Larger and more specialized record stores will usually have a COMEDY
section where major label releases by such artists as "Weird Al" Yankovic,
Ray Stevens, Tom Lehrer and Monty Python may be found. Ask the clerk where
the COMEDY section is. Other demented discs may be filed under ROCK/POP,
COUNTRY, OLDIES, etc. depending on the style of music. You can also find
many comedy CD's at online sources such as Amazon.com
and Barnes & Noble.
Some of the newer songs heard on the show are on independent labels
that are most easily obtained by mail order. The Demento Society News,
mailed periodically to all active Demento Society members, contains
addresses for many of these independent labels.
Quite a few of the records heard on the show are older releases that
have gone out of print. Many may still be found, however, at stores
carrying used records. Look in your local Yellow Pages and you may well
find ads for stores offering "hard-to-find," "out-of-print" or "collectors'" records.
Several magazines for record collectors contain ads for dealers who
sell rare records by mail. Look for Goldmine (700 E. State St., Iola, WI
54990) and Discoveries (100 Bryant St., Dubuque, IA 52003). One mail-order
dealership I especially recommend for its huge stock of novelty 45's is
Saturday Night Records, PO Box 669, Macomb, IL 61455.
Can I buy copies of your shows on tape?
Alas, I cannot sell tapes of radio shows, due to copyright laws covering
the records I play.
I have a funny song. Can I send you a tape of it?
I'm always happy to listen to original funny songs (or parodies). I get
quite a few each week, and play the best ones on the air. Simply send your
song(s) on CD, DAT, cassette, reel-to-reel, or vinyl to the address above.
If there are more than four songs, please indicate which ones you feel are
most appropriate for the show. Allow some time, as I listen to each one
personally. You can find the address to mail it to here.
I encourage you to copyright your material before sending it to me or anyone else.
I can't find your show anywhere around here! What gives?
The show is currently only carried online
