I've admired [livejournal.com profile] gridlore's ability to mine his vast knowledge of heavy metal from ages gone by. If you look at his Heavy Metal Sunday tags you'll find all kinds of metal of historical and contemporary interest, from Britain to America to Germany to Spain.

I finally realized there's a small niche I can fill among my friends. Since usually when I get asked "Hey, have you heard this old novelty record? There's a video of it on YouTube!" my response is usually "Oh, yeah! Great song. I heard it on the Dr. Demento show back in nineteen-mummbly-mummble. I should have shared it with you over the years I've known you."

All that was left was finding a day to put it on. [livejournal.com profile] brigideire suggested Freaky Friday, but I wasn't sure I wanted to wait that long. Manic Mondays is taken by Devo Spice for his funny music podcast. And then I remembered that [livejournal.com profile] mtfierce (among others) hates Tuesdays, and could probably use a bit of cheering up.

So, as my first installment, I've picked The Pheromones, best known for their song about hole-in-the-wall computer stores "Where's The Service?" However, this song was their first played on Dr. Demento. So get out your 80s hair and prepare to go back in time to when Yuppies roamed the earth. (Yeah, I know. They're still there, but they're not as fun to make fun of these days.)
