Dave's Fun Stuff Radio Update August 22, 2014

Item 1: Raising Funds

There's been a lot of go-fund-me and kickstater campaigns aimed at raising money for the dementia community.

You can find me funding one of the projects for Dr. Don on gofundme.com. I donated $5. The fundraiser raised over $2,000. Tom Rockwell conducted the campaign.

Times are tough nowadays on dementoids and I'm no exception.

I do, however, have a few ways I can raise money to help fund other people's fundraisers.

All you have to do is to buy some David Tanny or Stupid Audio downloads.

For every five albums I sell on my bandcamp page (see Item 3 below), I will set aside $1 for a future fundraiser campaign. Also since the albums are priced at $7, I make only $1 in profit per album sold after bandcamp takes the $6 out of $7.

Item 2: The Reverb Store Is Closing

Reverb Nation is closing down its Reverb Stores after September 30, 2014.

If you want to grab the albums of mine in CD form, you better do it before then!

The albums "Instrumentals", "Crazy Commercials" and "Originals (2000-2012)" are available as whole physical albums until Sep 30. After that, the Store is no more.

Visit this site for the Reverb Store (Stupid Audio)

(Reverb Store is now closed forever. Sorry.)

Item 3: Visit Bandcamp For Downloads

There are six albums (download only) of mine available: "Originals", "Originals 2", "Crazy Commercials", "Crazy Commercials 2", "Instrumentals", and "Watch The Frog: The Album".

You can get the full albums or download a few of the tracks right here at

http://davidtanny.bandcamp.com/

Item 4: Donate Cash to David Tanny

Running davesfunstuff (which turns 19 in September) costs money to operate. I use sales from Amazon to help pay for webhosting and domain registration expenses.

To help me pay for the expenses and to set aside some funds for another kickstarter or gofundme campaign, just go to one of these two sites.

4a: Get something through the Amazon link at
http://www.davesfunstuff.com/ or http://www.dfsxradio.com/.
When you click on the Amazon links through my websites named, I get credit for driving traffic to the Amazon website, and Amazon kicks back a small portion of their sales as my commission.

4b: Donate cash at
http://donate.davesfunstuff.com/. I can set aside $1 for every $5 you donate to a future fundraiser campaign and use the rest for webhosting expenses.

Item 5: Not-so-new album: Crazy Commercials 2

This album was originally released as part of the 10th Anniversary series a few years ago but was discontinued after 2011. Now it's back with a new title: "Crazy Commercials 2", making fun of well-known products, with wretched titles, such as the following:

Badyeqar Incomplete Auto Repair, Bronze Medal Flour, Crappy's Gags, Dorky's Human Control, Fish Heads and Chips '10, Gyppy Screwed, Hell's Fargo Bank, Horror Chili, NutriBrain, Sixty Dollar Burger, Tide with Pepsi, Tonight on Fox: 24, Turkey of the Ocean, Carhax, and more.

See Crazy Commercials 2 at
http://davidtanny.bandcamp.com/

Item 6: Demented Music Poll '14.

Time's running out! We're still looking for song nominees to list for our resurrected Demented Music Poll '14. The deadline is fast approaching: November 15, 2014.

Don't let your favorite funny song or sketch be left out! Just get three of your friends including yourself to go to the Demented Music Poll page at...
http://poll.davesfunstuff.com/

Hints: Listen to all of the funny music countdowns heard on madmusic.com: Dementia Top 20 Revenge, A-Log of the Airwaves, and Ben's Wacky Radio for ideas on what songs to nominate if it's not already on the list. When I get three people to mention a song, I will take a listen to it, and if it fits the format, it's on the list as soon as the I Still Get Demented show plays it. I've gotten over 200 e-mails for song suggestions with only a few dozen getting mentions from two different people. The magic number is three. As soon as a particular song gets a third mention, I will review it. If it's a commercial parody, all I would need is one since ISGD is big on commercial parodies.

You can see the newer stuff ISGD played so far this year at...
http://poll.davesfunstuff.com/

That is all for now.

Dave's Fun Stuff Radio Update Feb 18, 2014

Would you believe Feb 19, 2014 is the 25th anniversary of Dr. Demento playing a sketch "Michael Jackson Language Tape" by the Rich Brothers? I suggested the Rich Brothers Album to benefit the Cara Knott foundation in late December 1988.

Anyway, I finally got some news to share.

1. New Funny Song: "Me Want Cookie"

A few days ago when I was buying some Girl Scout cookies to support the locals, I heard a song on the radio by new wave group Bow Wow Wow singing "I Want Candy", a hit from 1982. It got me to thinking "I Want Cookie", then "Me Want Cookie", and from the inspiration, I came up with a new funny song inspired by the Girl Scouts.

Available at
http://www.madmusic.com/song_details.aspx?SongID=53140

3. I Still Get Demented

Website: http://www.madmusic.com/isgd.aspx

New shows added every week. Sometimes two a week. Now 2 hours long for faster listening. Duplication with other shows kept to a minimum.

4. The Del

The newest part of the almost 20-year-old Davesfunstuff family opened in December.

The Del (Dave's Entertainment Library) is about funny music, comedy, and other stuff in entertainment. It's growing all the time. Check it out here

http://del.davesfunstuff.com/
http://comedy.davesfunstuff.com/ (for comedy acts)

5. New Album on Bandcamp March 4

One of my newest album collections drops March 4. Set your bookmark to
http://davidtanny.bandcamp.com/

That is all for now. Cya.

New Retro Break-In: Hey, Eight is Enough!

In 2012, Stupid Audio brought you two retro break-in recordings: "Hey, Three Stooges!", and "Hey, Mr. Kotter!"

This past June, SA brings you "Hey, Eight is Enough!" (a title as illiterate as "The Facts of Life Go To Paris"), where the (late?) reporter, John Paul Cameron, interviews ten different characters from that TV show. At the end of the interview, X-fighters appear from nowhere and aim their laser guns at him. What did John do to cause this? Listen to the recording on this edition of ISGD here:

New David Tanny Funmentia Song "Computer Operator

As I mentioned a week ago, my new fun computer song "Computer Operator, a parody of Sade's 1985 smooth hit "Smooth Operator", made its worldwide debut on February 9, 2013, on an FCC-licensed low power radio station east of San Diego county, beaming 2 watts over the air and streaming worldwide on the Internet.

The song was first played by local Chris Carmichael, who has just begun to host his own radio show "Jack's Tracks" heard Saturday afternoons from 3-6pm. His dog Jack sniffs out and plays whatever he likes. He plays local artists, plus an assortment of light rock songs from his own CD collection.

Facebook review from Cheryl: "COMPUTER OPERATOR?!? hahahahaha love it!!!"

Check out the song Computer Operator here:

Radio deejays are free to stream the song on the radio stations.

David Tanny's New Holiday Cut-Up

It's called A Christmas Mess-Up
http://www.madmusic.com/song_details.aspx?SongID=49856

In this break-in recording, "Daniel" gets to do the talking, while excerpts of David Tanny's recordings help fill out the shortened telling of Twas the Night Before Christmas. Influenced by Whimsical Will's "Christmas Cut-Up" recording from 1985.

This break-in contains excerpts from my material such as "I'm Doing Nothing For Christmas", "Dorky's Human Control", "Centipede", "The Three Stooges", "Morgan's Mortuary", "NutriBrain", "The Equimas Song", "All Out of Pups", "Eight is Enough", "Fish Heads and Chips '10", "Mac vs. PC vs. Stan", "Watching Space Ghost", "aka The Buffy Rap", and more.

This won't get played on many funny music shows besides ISGD so if you want to hear it in full, you need to tune in to the ISGD #12-50 show and select the Bonus segment

http://www.madmusic.com/playlist.aspx?Show=ISGD-12-50

Note that it is the #12-50 all Hanukkah novelty show. The Bonus segment is independent of the main show.


David Tanny's New Break-In Recording: "Hey, Mr. Kotter!"

New Dickie Goodman-inspired break-in recording.

My new break-in piece in time for back to school, "Hey, Mr. Kotter", made its debut on the September 8 "ISGD" show, which you can hear for free at this link. (it kicks off hour two)

http://www.madmusic.com/playlist.aspx?Show=ISGD-12-36

For song details, you can check it out here. The piece runs over seven minutes long.

http://www.madmusic.com/song_details.aspx?SongID=49140

This break-in piece I created should have been thought of by the late Dickie Goodman in 1975, but I produced the 2012 recording using all excerpts of recordings from 1975.

I did some research at Wikipedia and rediscovered that Babarino was a Star Trek fan, so I included a Star Drek answer to one of the questions that was asked to Vinnie. This piece is dedicated to the memories of Ron Pallilo and Robert Hegyes, two of the original cast members who played the Sweathogs that died in 2012.

If you listen to the first four song-excerpts provided as answers to the questions, they are the same as those used in Goodman's "Mr. Jaws" recording, also paying homage to his contribution to funny recordings.
