Episode 138 – Dr. Demento


He inspired the guy who inspired this podcast.  He’s the ultimate curator of novelty music, a music historian, an expert on the history of recorded sound and of comedy, and he was the sound of a generation of comedy lovers.  He might have invented what it means to be a comedy nerd, whether you grew up listening to him on terrestrial radio, or not.  We sat down to talk about his personal history with music and with comedy.
