  • 01. "DFSX Radio Jingle" (2009) - a rerecording of the DFSX jingle

    02. "Goin' Back to L.A." (2007 mix) - celebrates the old days of driving 120 miles to Los Angeles to hear the Dr. Demento Show because the fan's hometown wouldn't carry the show on their radio stations in the fan's radio market. The driving trek takes place on a Sunday in 1981 when the Doc used to do a live four-hour show on a now-defunct radio station.

    Long Description: This is something that I used to do way back in the early 1980s some weeks when I was 21, had a beaten-up 1970 Torino, gas was just $1.19 a gallon, minumum wage was $3.35 an hour, and no station in San Diego carried the Dr. Demento Show. Back in 1981, thanks to Dr. Demento going on Tomorrow with Tom Snyder and plugging his four-hour live show on the late KMET 94.7, I got some way to get demented for four hours a week from 6pm-10pm. Problem. I live in San Diego where there's a strong station on 94.9, interfering with my reception of 94.7 in Los Angeles. So I had to either put up with a crappy radio receiving interference, or drive up to El Toro or somewhere and hang out at a burger stand in the area where I could receive 94.7 clearly. I used to bring some tape cassettes and a tape deck to tape the shows, dub some of my favorites onto another tape, then erase over the tapes I used to tape the show every week. This comedy rap song I produced is a salute to all the people who used to drive to a nearby city to listen to Dr. Demento in whatever city he may be on. Remember that back in 1981, this was well over 15 years before Internet radio made traveling to another city obsolete. One more note: after Dr. Demento's live show ended at 10pm, KOLA 99.9 carried the syndicated version of the Dr. Demento Show from 10pm-MID. I never cared that much for KOLA because most of the time if not all of it was basically voicetracked, never hearing any live deejays during the day or night.

    03. "No Place to Park" (2007 mix) - no place to park? That's a major problem. It's a comedy rap commentary on overcrowded parking lots and the businesses who don't get the rapper's business simply because there's no place to park his car. The businesses underestimated the number of parking spaces to include in their property.

    04. "I'm a Cowboy" (2000 mix) - An original song using clever rhymes for "Day" almost throughout the song.

    05. "Dead Bug" (2008 mix) - I wrote this when I saw a dead bug on the wall.

    06. "ISGD Theme" (2008 mix) - this was used on the "I Still Get Demented Podcast Edition" show in 2008.

    07. "Boobs Boobs Boobs" (2007 mix) - a reworking of a song with the melody originally used for "Britney Spears" way back in 2000.

    08. At Least I Know How To (edit) (2007) - everybody knows how to do at least one thing, right?

    09. "Girl, You Drive Me Wild" (edit) (2004) - How a boy band would be surprised at what they're singing about.

    10. "Mutant Girl" (2008 mix) - An original rap song about an encounter with an unusual lady. It's not what you think it is.

    11. "Britney Spears" (edit) (2000) - An original song whose melody was based on an old Wrigley's Spearmint Gum (get it?) commercial set to relevant lyrics at a time when all the parodies making fun of her endowments were on morning show radio.

    12. Britney Spears's Bald (2007) - using the melody of the original "Britney Spears" song, which was also used in the "Boobs Boobs Boobs" song above.

    13. Boobs Boobs Boobs (instrumental) - just the boobs boobs boobs chant.

    14. "San Diego Radio Sucks Intro" (2006)

    15. "San Diego Radio Sucks" (edit) (2006) - my plight with listening to corporate radio in so-called America's Finest City. Radio is as bad as it was when I was a kid with virtually nothing for me to enjoy. Today, with our collective knowledge about comedy music as a genre, legal download services, and playlist sharing, commercial radio as an influencer is rendered completely obsolete.

    16. "San Diego Radio Sucks Outro" (2006)

    17. Having Fun on the MMDT20 Show (2007) - David Tanny, the first host, gets to have some fun.

    18. Unsolved Blooper (2008)
