Letter To Dr Demento, 7 October 1996

Self explanatory letter to Dr Demento. Unsurprisingly, there was no reply. I tried.

Dear Dr D


I enclose a tape of songs recorded by Ben Murphy, who performs and records dementia here in Blighty. I write many of the songs, he writes many too and some are “classic dementia”.

Some of the material will not cross the pond too well, but some surely will. I have cued the Tarantino Man song (last track, Side A) for your initiation. The Brit Pop subject matter might please you (I’m Not Young, Britpop, Uncommon People) or you might even enjoy some truly British dementia for a change (Songbooks, Euroscepticals, BSE).

Please enjoy and broadcast if you will. I can be contacted as above. I shall be in New York 1 November to 8 November if that helps at all.

Yours sincerely

Ian Harris
