Enjoy Stuff: A TechnoRetro Podcast

Wind up your radio for a look back at the king of wacky radio, Dr. Demento! Enjoy Stuff looks back at the zaniness of the parodies and comedy bits he played and what made us laugh so hard. From Fish Heads to Dead Puppies, it's time to get Demented!


Parodies and comedy are great, but has there ever been one place that specializes in only those classics? Look no further than Dr. Demento! He’s the bearded, top hat-wearing radio DJ that made Weird Al famous and Shaving Cream naughty. This week we look back on all the laughs.

What we’re Enjoying

Shua is enjoying some Mayhem! But he’s trying to relax because he’s just watching The Muppets Mayhem on Disney+. It’s a pretty good interpretation of our favorite rock band, Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem. All while trying to record their first album. Jay is running a local Memorial Day 5k, probably as you read this! Isn’t it good when we can stay fit and active?

Enjoy Music! 

Dr. Demento was filling the radio airwaves with funny songs for years. His real name is Barrett Hanson, but we all know him as Dr. Demento. During the 70s and 80s he had a syndicated radio show where he played many song parodies, stand-up, comedy, routines, and recorded skits. But that really doesn’t even come close to describing all of the crazy kinds of humor he had on his demented show. This week, Jay and Shua revisit some of their favorites and talk about what made it so funny.
