CHRISTMAS 0950: Here's Part Two of our three-part holiday celebration for 2009, with half a dozen Chanukah carols joining our rollicking roster of Yuletide hilarities. WARNING: the bonus tracks this week are what we might call an Anti-Christmas show...songs that are not in what's usually called the Christmas spirit, and are absolutely not recommended for children...but you've told us how much you love these songs that we mostly can't play on radio, so here they are.

THANKSGIVING 0947: Here's our Happy Thanksgiving show for 2009. We celebrate the consumption of turkey and other festive foods...but we also remember that other meaning of the word "turkey" to denote a movie, play or song that is extremely bad. To that end, we bring back this week the Audio Torture Chamber, a feature some listeners might remember from the 1980s. We visit the Chamber at the end of each segment (except the last one). Notable among the bonus tracks is "Turkish Delight," a 1932 British comedy record spoofing the cultural traditions of Baghdad and other Middle Eastern localities. (Warning: politically incorrect).

MARIJUANA 0946: Our topic this week is marijuana. We've never made the evil weed a main topic before -- it's still illegal, after all -- but there are thousands of songs about it. We're only scratching the surface, but here's a nice little survey of the best of the more humorous marijuana melodies. The bonus tracks include some rare gems from the 1930s. (As is our custom, the first two segments offer a variety of new and old funny songs on other subjects). Nov 15, 2009

FANTASY TOP 25 0945: Something we haven't tried before this week...we present a "fantasy countdown" compiled by listener Steve Szeli of Newburgh, NY. This is essentially a countdown of Steve's favorite demented songs. It contains a nice mix of classic Demented hits with some items not heard all that often. We hope to present more "fantasy countdowns" on an occasional basis in the future, and we invite you to send your list! (Use the "request a song" feature at www.drdemento.com). The "bonus tracks" are some deserving new songs we somehow haven't been able to fit into the regular show. There are a couple of naughty words here and there. Nov 8, 2009

TOP TEN 0944: Here's our Top Ten show for October 2009. This show also has our more or less annual salute to hunting, and three memorial tributes (Vic Mizzy, Capt. Lou Albano, and Soupy Sales) which is sad but also lots of fun. The Bonus Tracks include some real rarities...Jimmie Cross' rarely heard followup to "I Want My Baby Back," early efforts from Ray Stevens and Sly Stone (one of the Stewart Brothers) - each of these artists made records for almost a decade before finding real success - and an alternate version of Captain Lou Albano's rousing theme song.

This is different from our previous Beatles tributes; there are no medleys. All of these now-rare records are played complete. Also: songs about football, superheroes, video games and alcohol.

LABOR DAY 0936: Labor Day was invented in the late 19th century as a way for the US government to show American workers (especially union members) that the government loved and respected them. Nowadays most Americans mostly think of Labor Day as the last barbecue of summer, but there are a whole lot of great and funny songs about working, and we can't think of a better time to play them. Sure beats actually working! The bonus tracks have some entertaining, rare and historical songs and comedy bits about labor unions, including Pete Seeger at age 21 (with the Almanac Singers), plus Carlton the Doorman.

Also this week: the Dr D debut of The Fuxedos, a band that should appeal to Zappa fans everywhere (but has its own irreverent style), Billy Edd Wheeler's two outhouse odes back to back for the first time, two new songs by the recently reunited Faust & Lewis, and "Weird Al" Yankovic's salute to the late and legendary Charles Nelson Reilly.

Dr. Demento Debuts include "Platform Wars," the definitive spoof of those Mac Vs. PC commercials, and the PG-13 rated "Sex Positions Song."

D-POD SHUFFLE 0928: By popular demand, here's another "D-Pod Shuffle" show, where I let my computer pick songs at random. Instead of the logical thought progressions and harmonious segues that I normally take pride in, this one takes us all over the place. New, old, loud, soft, nice, nasty, profound, stoopid, whatever! Great fun! Don't miss "Star Trek-A-Polka," which hasn't been heard for over 20 years. In the online-only segment we'll hear two (2) vintage episodes of the dreaded Audio Torture Chamber, plus perhaps the darkest piece of dark comedy I've ever played on the show ("Answering Machine" is not recommended for children!!!)

This show has the revised version of Baldbox's "U.S. F'n A" (did you know they left out a whole state the first time?) plus Seamonkey's fragrant spoof of "Boom Boom Pow."

Also included are some 1930s rarities related to the drug culture of that era...and one of our most requested oldies, "The Last Blast of the Blasted Bugler" - that's the one about Gunga Din. To top it off, our online bonus segment includes the extremely rare original release of "Last Blast," which is almost a minute longer than the more familiar version. Jun 14, 2009

Our bonus for this show is a 1973 interview with Frank Zappa, in which he introduced The Shaggs for the first time, talked about his early (pre-Mothers) recordings, and also played some cherished 1950s R&B items.

TOP TEN 0913: Here's the Top Ten for March, plus lots more treats for discerning Dementites, including songs about bad hair, the Wild West, sniffles and sneezes, and Grandma. We have a special tribute to the late Alan Livingston, who signed the Beatles to Capitol Records and revitalized Frank Sinatra's career...but we focus on his contributions to the Golden Era of children's records, 1946-52, when among other things he invented the character of Bozo the Clown, and co-wrote "I Taut I Taw A Puddy Tat." Our bonus segment features three multi-part Golden Era kids' records, running about 12 minutes each. Also note that for online listeners only, "Existential Blues" is heard here in the original, slightly longer version. Mar 29, 2009

SPRINGTIME 0912: Here's our demented salute to springtime...its birds, its flowers, its worms and showers...and some baseball too. We also have a farewell salute to the 20th century's second most popular American boy soprano, the late Jimmy Boyd. The online bonus tracks include some very hard-to-find 1960s singles by Jimmy Boyd as an adult vocalist, in songs he wrote together with Bobby Darin, and with Leon Russell and J. J. Cale. (Also - "Wal-Martian Rhapsody" and "Beer!!!", which appear in slightly edited versions on the radio show, are unedited for the online version). Mar 22, 2009

RELATIVES 0911: We celebrate relatives on this week's show -- you know, all those people in your life that you don't get to pick and choose! Aunts, uncles, brothers, sisters, cousins and so on. There's also a nice long set of demented St. Patrick's Day favorites. The online-only bonus set has more songs about relatives. (Note: "Granny And The Kid" is unedited and has a bit of explicit language, as does "How's Your Hole Family.") Mar 15, 2009

RADIO 0910: Our subject this week is Radio...songs and comedy bits about radio from various eras, especially from the original heyday of radio in the 1920s, and the heyday of Top 40 in the 1950s (and the payola scandal that followed). Our bonus tracks include a great radio blues (by a singer better known as "Smiley" Lewis) and two hilarious radio satires from the 1920s. (N. B. - "Radio Impressions" and "Twisting The Dials" are here presented in their entirety -- earlier appearances of these items in our online shows are excerpts only). Lots of exciting new stuff in our first hour! Mar 8, 2009

RECORDS 0909: We celebrate records this week...those big flat round black things people used to put on turntables when they wanted to hear some music. Given up for dead not that long ago, they're BAAACK with a vengeance, and we're here to cheer them on, having loved records since early childhood. Our bonus track segment this week has even more Records About Records...lots of things that will never be on CD or even iTunes...and the "regular" part of the show has a couple of hidden bonuses for online listeners only: "The White Knight" is the extended version, three minutes longer, only released as a 45 rpm B-side...and "Genie, the Magic Record" has 2 1/2 minutes of extra magic.

TOP TEN 0908: This week we salute the variable nature of friendship and un-friendship, the city of Los Angeles, cannabis, a new cult film and an old one, and -- of course -- the Top Ten for February. Our bonus segment features nine, count 'em, nine rare Spike Jones tracks. Feb 22, 2009

SHORT SONGS 0907: Every three years or so Dr. Demento gathers up some of the shortest songs in his archives. This time, as in 2005, he sequences them so that they get shorter and shorter as the show progresses, for an exhilarating rush to brevity. The opening song, Steve Martin's new "Late For School," has nothing to do with that. Neither does the online-only bonus segment, dedicated to Tiny Tim, and featuring a funny and revealing interview with Minnesota radio personality T. D. Mischke. Much of the interview is devoted to Tiny's unique approach to personal hygiene. (We'd rate it somewhere around PG-13). Feb 15, 2009

VALENTINE'S DAY 0906: Here's our celebration of Valentine's Day 2009...lots of old favorites plus some we haven't heard in awhile. You can also compare our two "kill the wabbit" songs back-to-back, featuring ace impressionists Darrell Hammond (of SNL fame) and Mark McCollum (as Ozzy Fudd). Our bonus segment introduces some worthy newer songs that are a bit too explicit for radio. They are unbleeped here and parental guidance is suggested; the last one is especially explicit.

TRAINS 0905: All aboard for a show featuring one of Dr. D's favorite topics, trains. (He has been a railfan since age four, when he was in a nursery school overlooking a busy railroad track). Lots of hard to find items, especially in the "Rarities" online bonus segment. Feb 1, 2009

TOP TEN 0904: Here's our first monthly Top Ten for 2009! Other treats include a salute to Damaskas' Copycat Corner from 1979, prompted by a new book following the same M.O....and, in our online-only bonus segment, a track from each of the five albums nominated for the Grammy for Best Comedy Recording this year.

PRESIDENTS 0903: The Dr. Demento Show goes all-Presidential! In honor of the inauguration of Barack Obama, and to help prepare him for the comedic zingers that are sure to come his way in the next four years, we offer a retrospective of the comedic abuse heaped upon several former Presidents, one soon-to-be-former President, and one would-be-President-elect. As with last week's Scandals show, many long-unavailable collector's items are included. Jan 18, 2009

SCANDALS 0902: Our Hour Two theme this week is "Scandals" - especially those involving powerful, wealthy and/or sexy people who behave in bizarre, distasteful or dishonest ways. Starring Britney, Michael, Jim & Tammy, Bill & Monica, and more. Many of the songs heard here are very hard to find today, having disappeared from the marketplace as their subject matter faded from the tabloid covers. This theme dovetails with next week's show, which celebrates the inauguration of Barack Obama with lots of songs and comedy bits about his predecessors and their scandals. Jan 11, 2009

EASY SONGS FOR HARD TIMES 0901: Our first show of 2009 spotlights the economy. We're calling it "Easy Songs For Hard Times." Along with songs inspired by the current SNAFU, I located some songs from the early 1930s when we were experiencing some very similar situations. Some of those songs are surprisingly cheerful! We could use a little of that cheer today. Jan 4, 2009
