When I was in the 8th grade I heard Weird Al for the first time and felt like I was home. Like someone was as weird and wacky as me. At that time, on our local radio station, after Rick Dee's and the weekly Top 40 (so you had to stay up really late to hear it, which I wasn't allowed) was the Dr. Demento show. Sometimes my friends would record them and let me listen. I heard lots of great songs that way; Dead Puppies, Fish Heads, Bulbous Bouffant, even the Time Warp from the Rocky Horror Picture Show. And, of course, classic Weird Al, like My Bologna. During my 8th grade year, 95-96, that radio station went off the air and I never heard that radio show again. I saw a clip online last year of one broadcast with Tiny Tim in it. Last week I was watching an MST3K, a really terrible Canadian one, Zombie Nightmare. About 10 minutes into the movie, this really athletic guy gets hit by a car and dies and his mom is distraught and gets him turned into the zombie. While he's lying there clearly not getting medical attention, Tom Servo riffs/sings "Dead hunk in the middle of the road!" When he said that, a light went on, and I thought, that is a song I know. It's a parody of something. It wasn't until this morning that I remembered the word was SKUNK, and looked up the song, and remembered that I knew it from Dr Demento.
