On one hand, quite clever, on another, quite obnoxious. Since I don't have the ability at work to pipe one channel to both ears, quite useless to me. I hope some of the other fans can enjoy it... it seems like a tremendous amount of work on your part that probably won;t be appreciated by all of the fans...

I agree. That's why stunts like this is limited to once a year. :-)

While we're doing 50th anniversary shows, I hope there'll be lots of 'Doctor Who at 50' themed shows come November. Maybe we'll know who the 12th Doctor will be by then. I hope to be not dead and in fair enough condition to make a Dr. Who MMS myself.

I may or may not do a whole show devoted to Dr. Who on an upcoming episode of ISGD. It all depends on whether there's enough material to do a full show featuring at least 125 minutes of Dr. Who material (including either a random listener's top five Dr. Who song list or otherwise a regular weekly top five).

Since the date actually falls five days before Thanksgiving, and it's the weekend usually devoted for playing Thanksgiving and Musical Turkeys, should we (meaning all of the funny music shows) select to do a Dr. Who at 50 themed subject for the weekend of November 16?

To me, I don't equate the run of "An Unearthly Child" with Thanksgiving; I think of the Kennedy assassination. BBC1 actually had to run the 1st episode again because of the coverage and general mayhem of the event.

It would be no problem to run it early...but, as you quite correctly point out, there isn't a huge amountl of material on Dr. Who - or Thanksgiving for that matter, so the more adventurous might have one show dedicated to both subjects. "I like turkey. Turkeys are cool."

I actually could do an entire show on Thanksgiving, in fact, when I once had a live365 stream, I had about three hours worth of Thanksgiving and some food songs to create a two-day Thanksgiving channel.

I know the material exists; maybe I'm just too picky about what would be amusing for a show. Still, Dr. Who and turkeys would make an interesting show combination. If it were me, I wouldn't post a playlist for a while and listeners wouldn't know if the next track would be about the Doctor or the dinner.

I was going to wait a while to post the playlist anyway to have listeners tune in the old school way the way it used to be. Elements of surprising is what's missed. I could post the usual Friday ISGD promo without the playlist, just an announcement that it exists but some teasers that are vague to surprise the visitor.

In order to make this week's show not so mysterious, I threw in an hour's worth of requests by readers for classic goofy gold dementia that most listeners of Dr. Demento already know. That's in the first two parts of the show. I might plan on doing an annual Goofy Gold Dementia request subject around this time.

That sort of thing's a good idea. There are a lot of dead zones in the calendar when nothing particular happens. Worse, there are holidays that have no songs about them. Making your own show-based traditions for those times could help listenership - or at the very least, give fans another thing to look forward to. It's a 'good thing'.

Also, since A-Log, Ben, and Dr. Demento seem to be topicing (if that's a word) around a holiday coming soon after the show airs, It's freed me up from doing these annual topics every year on ISGD (listeners, can, still, influence by requesting them and I'll play them if they make the top five).

Also, the Demented Datebooks, my own radio prep material, provides some additional ideas for subjects around birthdays of demented celebrities and anniversaries, which are often ignored by most other shows (except for the death date of Elvis and other certain celebrities, the anniversary of Star Wars, Harry Potter movies, etc.).
