Dr Demento is a Reedie and every year he gives a series of musical "lectures"
(I guess that's what you call them) at Reed College as part of Paideia. Free
for Reedies and probably something like $5-$10 for everyone else. I highly
recommend attending both his "serious" stuff and his silly stuff. The man's
been broadcasting for 38 years, he knows music.
Paideia event: Dr. Demento
Dr. Demento returns to Reed for four lecture and music presentations:
January 23: An Historical Introduction to Protest Song
Anti-war, labor, and other songs protesting the powers that be, from the 1930s
to the present time.
January 24: Censorship
Censorship, and how it affects the music you hear and don't hear, covers
corporate, media, and governmental restrictions.
January 25: Musical Comedy in the 21st Century
Funny music is flourishing under the radar, and Dr. Demento is not just
talking about Weird Al. We listen to and watch some of the most hilarious and
creative examples of recent years.
January 26: Festival of Dementia
The festival features some of the most popular songs from the radio show,many
of them as music videos. New material is mixed with all-time Dr Demento
favorites like "Fish Heads."
8 p.m., Vollum lecture hall.
