Creator: Dr Demento

Dr. Demento (AKA Barret Eugene Hansen) is a disc jockey and ethnomusicologist who achieved fame and/or infamy with his long-running syndicated radio program which features strange and bizarre novelty tunes of every type and description. Along with reviving popular interest in performers such as Spike Jones and Tom Lehrer, he introduced "Weird Al" Yankovic to the world, which is pretty much a lifetime achievement in itself. Other performers often associated with his show include Da Yoopers, Napoleon XIV, and The Great Luke Ski

The show continues to air weekly via the Internet.

He is reportedly one of Bart Simpson's arch-enemies. Off the air, he has an extensive knowledge of music history, and has written articles, essays, and liner notes on a wide variety of music subjects.
