- REQUEST "WHEN YOU WISH UPON A DEATH STAR" FOR THE DR. DEMENTO SHOW!

Sadly, "When You Wish Upon A Death Star" was not on Dr. Demento's Top Ten for March 2013, and has dropped to being the 2nd most requested song of the year thus far. Will the song fade away and become some kind of Jedi ghost hanging out at the Haunted Mansion? Like a flying elephant, always in motion, the future is. So, if you'd like to see "When You Wish Upon A Death Star" back on the Top Ten next month, please REQUEST for "The Dr. Demento Show" to play it again at http://drdemento.com/request , and be sure to include your e-mail address so it counts towards the Top Ten tabulations! And as always, you can listen to the show every week at http://drdemento.com/online.html . Thanks!

~In case you need a reminder, here's some details on the project:~
“UNDER THE SMOGBERRY TREES” is the first ever feature length documentary about legendary deejay Dr. Demento!

Besides Barry Hansen a.k.a. Dr. Demento, Barnes & Barnes, Bill Frenzer, Tom "T-Bone" Stankus, Whimsical Will, and Sulu, the documentary will also include involvement from such FuMP acts as the great Luke Ski, Throwing Toasters, Devo Spice, Power Salad, Insane Ian, & MC Lars!

There are many great prizes for donating, so please go to their website and read all about it, donate something if you can, and spread the word about it to all your comedy music loving friends online! Sara and I donated, and you should too!

- LUKE SKI MOWS THE LAWN OF HIS BIGGEST KICKSTARTER DONOR!

Yes, as promised when I did my Kickstarter last year, I went to the home of Bob Mathews in Fullerton, California, and as well as performing a house concert for him and his family and friends on his birthday, I also mowed his lawn. Lindsay Smith was kind enough to be my cameraperson, capturing the event on my phone which was streaming it live to people watching it on the internet. The video was saved, and you can see it on my Ustream page at http://www.ustream.tv/channel/thegreatlukeski . TV's Kyle was also there, manning my HD video camera, adding commentary and getting more footage of the event for later use. I performed the house concert, which featured guest appearances by Kyle, Lindsay, Chris Waffle of Hot Waffles, and was filmed by Jeff Smith of Raymond & Scum for use in his forthcoming Untitled Comedy Music Documentary. Thanks to everyone involved, it was a great time all around. As Devo Spice commented upon seeing the video feed, "That was far more entertaining than it deserved to be."

- LUKE & CARRIE'S BAD RAPPORT

Episode #083 – Shatner Face
That look of surprise on Captain Kirk’s face will be the same one you have when you learn that this episode is under 90 minutes long! See? I told you. The first 30 minutes of this episode has Alex in it, so if you’re not interested in his ever rapidly developing vocabulary, then you might want to skip it. Carrie tells us about their trip to Arizona, Josh has an ignorance story involving a cable company customer service rep, and Luke tells us how he broke his record for sneaking snacks into the cinema. Later, Kyle joins Luke to hear him recap MarCon. We also play comedy music by The FuMP, Ookla The Mok, The Arrogant Worms, Jim Carrey, and some classic Dr. Demento era tunes by Doodles Weaver, Mark McCollum, Ivor Cutler, and Billy & The Boingers to help promote the “Under The Smogberry Trees” Kickstarter to produce a feature length documentary film about Dr. Demento! There’s a lot of great prizes for donating, so if you have the extra cash, please donate today! Episode length: 1:28:36

- "THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU GIVE LOGAN A MEDLEY" by THE FUMP!

If you haven't heard of Logan Whitehurst, in short, he was a brilliant comedy musician who passed away in 2006 at age 29 having succumbed to a brain tumor. Dr. Demento called his album “Goodbye My 4-Track” the 'Sergeant Peppers' of comedy albums. In 2010, Rob Balder founded the Logan Whitehurst Memorial Awards for Excellence in Comedy Music in his memory to help celebrate the genre we call home. At this year's Logan Awards ceremony at MarsCon 2013, the concert kicked off with a medley of Logan's most popular funny songs performed by Luke, Kyle, Ian, and Carrie. This track is the studio version of that medley, as performed by the Funny Music Project's biggest Logan Whitehurst fans (listed in order of appearance): the great Luke Ski, TV's Kyle, Insane Ian, ShoEboX of Worm Quartet, Austin Aeschliman of Smashy Claw, Tony Goldmark, Jace McClain of Nuclear Bubble Wrap, Devo Spice, Derwood Bowen, and Carrie Dahlby, with samples of Logan himself at the beginning and end of the medley. We at 'the FuMP dot com' hope you all enjoy this piece highlighting the lighter side of Logan Whitehurst's brilliant musical career, and encourage you to look up his discography online so you can get to know his music and love him as much as we do.

Produced by the great Luke Ski
Music by Bob Emmet of Project Sisyphus and Thom Uliasz
Final Mix by Austin Aeschliman
Executive Producer Sid Sheinberg
