Most of these were never heard on radio when first released. Parental note: most of these are totally concerned with sex and other bodily processes, but the f-word is heard only on the bonus track, which also has the n-word. Feb 18, 2012

(Note 1: for a different group of Thanksgiving songs, including Stan Freberg and Arlo Guthrie classics, check out our show dated 11-20-10. Note 2: one new song in this show has lots of Bad Words.

THE YEAR 1987 1138: We timewarp to 1987 this week. Truly a vintage year, with the debuts of "Star Trekkin'," "Boot to the Head," three (very) different Demented spinoffs of the Beastie Boys' "Licensed to Ill," and a whole lot more. To round out the flashback, the Dr. has also included some long-forgotten 1987 items that were played only a time or two back then. We'll also hear a few rousing sea chanteys for Talk Like a Pirate Day. Sep 17, 2011

Weird Al's big breakthrough year is also memorable for "The Homecoming Queen's Got a Gun," "99 Dead Baboons," "The Curly Shuffle" and more enduring Demented hits. We also salute the songs of acne, and "Barney Google" sent me off on a stream of consciousness which I share with a bit of trepidation. We're rated PG this week. Jun 4, 2011
