Legendary broadcaster DR. DEMENTO (real name: BARRET HANSEN) has ended his syndicated radio show after 40 years. However, the show will continue to air on his website, drdemento.com.
DEMENTO's show was rife with comedy and parody songs, such as BARNES AND BARNES' "Fish Heads" and CHRISTMAS classic "Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer." He is also responsible for "discovering" WEIRD AL YANKOVIC, who sent DEMENTO homemade tapes of his music in the mid- to late-'70s.
