I Like Dr. Demento!

Back in the early seventies, I listened to the Dr. Demento Show on KMET. That got me started in liking novelty records. Featured below are a couple of favorites from the Dr. Demento Show on 8 Track. Often #1 on the top ten (reduced to the funny 5 in the syndicated show) Shaving Cream, and Dickie Goodman favorites.
plus the album of the Dr. Demento favorite The Roto Rooter Good Time Christmas Band. This album inclues their version of Pico & Sepulveda

I never did like the novelty
records on top forty radio.
Always felt they were a
distraction to the regular
fare. But then, it was pop
radio and if the audience wanted
it it would be played.

I agree! That's why I liked the Dr. Demento show.
You could hear all the novelty / strange songs one day each week. But some of them were hits, and they were played on Top 40 radio.
With the Dr. D show you could just listen for the fun of it!

I also enjoyed Dr. Demento on his Sunday night KMET program in the 70's.

I haven't seen anything I recognize as a 4-Track tape on your page. Are there any 4-Tracks in your collection or did you avoid that technology (mis)step?

I never bought 4 tracks....until recently, when I found some interesting ones at the swapmeet. If I can get my scanner functioning correctly, I will pull them out and post them
