Under the Smogberry Trees
We have learned that Scott and Christy McKenzie, aka Meep Morp Studios, are launching a fund-raising drive on IndieGoGo on or about September 29, 2016 to raise funds to complete their film about Dr. Demento. Please be advised that I do not authorize them to use my voice, name, photograph, likeness, trademark or copyright for their project, and they are not authorized to use those for fundraising. I am not involved with their project.

I continue to work with our crew to complete the true and only authorized Dr. Demento documentary, which can be referenced at http://www.smogberrytreesmovie.com.

Hi gang, the Doc wanted me to pass along this info for Northwest Dementites!

On Thursday evening, June 9, Dr. Demento will give a talk at Reed College in Portland, OR. The topic is "Entertainment, Education, Indoctrination! 100 Years of American Children's Records." Note that this is a lecture and not a Dr. Demento Show; he will not be wearing his top hat and tails. However, it includes a lot of great kids' songs that will be familiar to Dr. Demento listeners. The lecture will be in Vollum Lecture Hall, on Eliot Circle near the center of the campus. This is the same facility where Dr. Demento spoke last January and on previous occasions. Note starting time: 9 P.M. (The program should finish around 10:30).
Admission is free! First come, first served.

Dr. Demento Live in Portland, OR
Once again this year Dr. Demento will be giving three programs at Reed College, in Portland, OR. The programs are happening January 21 through 23.

Thursday, January 21 - We’re All Americans Now – Diversity and Integration in American Music:
a survey of the many different types of music that have been brought to America through the years...music originating in Africa, continental Europe, Asia, the Pacific Islands, Latin America, and more...and how they influence what we hear today...and how the changes in the music reflect the relationships between the different peoples of America. With numerous audio examples.

Friday, January 22 - The Life and Music of Frank Zappa:
The colorful story of rock music’s most brilliant satirist, and one of its great composers. With excerpts from my own interviews with Zappa, and many other audio and video examples.

Saturday, January 23- Punk Rock from the Beginning:
From the Ramones, the Sex Pistols and the Clash through the Dead Kennedys, Nirvana, Misfits, Meat Puppets, Bikini Kill and many more, into the 21st century. With audio and video examples. (Dr. Demento gave a talk on punk music at Reed in 1976, quite possibly the first lecture ever given on punk rock at any college campus).

All programs are in Vollum Lecture Hall, near the main entrance to the campus on S.E. Woodstock Blvd. Admission for the general public is $5.
