|Luke Ski Update 6-15-11 / Request "Snoopy The Dogg" for the Dr. Demento Show!
||[Jun. 15th, 2011|04:21 pm]
Hey everyone! I will be appearing on WBEZ 91.5 FM Chicago's morning radio program "Eight Forty-Eight" tomorrow morning (Thursday, June 16th) sometime between 9 & 10 am to promote the "Lethal Poetry presents: Words That Kill: Return Of The Geek" show. So all you Chicagoans can listen on your radios, and everyone else and listen on the web at http://www.wbez.org/ . Tune in and hear me babble! :D|
WHAT'S LUKE PLUGGING NOW?:
- PLEASE REQUEST "SNOOPY THE DOGG" FOR THE DR. DEMENTO SHOW!
There's a lot of stiff competition out there, both from my comedy music making colleagues, as well as from the king himself, "Weird Al" Yankovic, whose new album "Alpocalypse" comes out this Tuesday, JUne 21st! I'm really hoping I can score my third Funny 25 #1 song with "Snoopy The Dogg", and the only way that's going to happen is if my fans let Dr. Demento know they want it to stay on top by requesting it once a week at http://drdemento.com/request . So please help me remain 'top dog' by taking a moment to request "SNOOPY THE DOGG" for "The Dr. Demento Show", and also, please tune into the show at http://drdemento.com/online.html and join in on the fun every week. It's still the best show ever. Thank you. :)
Note: Also, last month "Sneaking Snacks Into The Cinema" by Flat 29, Luke Ski, & Carrie Dahlby was #8 on the Top Ten! Smashing, lads! :D
- LUKE & CARRIE'S BAD RAPPORT:
Episode #043 – Deservedly Not Nominated
Suddenly, Carrie and Luke found themselves recording a regular episode of their podcast in a pretty regular way at their regular date and time. This was unexpected this week, but it happened nonetheless. Hopefully it will have been worth it in some way. You’ll hear Luke tell tales of cutthroat games of Pictionary, Carrie tells us that the movie “Tree Of Life” sucks and should be avoided at all costs, and you’ll find out which one of our hosts stole things from a business they were paid to protect. Also, Luke bears his soul and for the first time on this podcast goes into detail about the first creative passion of his life, and makes an offer to the listeners to get a chance to experience it for themselves. There’s also News of the Stupid, and comedy tracks by Groucho Marx, George Carlin, Green Jello, and They Might Be Giants. Years from now, when you remember listening to Bad Rapport, will you say to yourself “those were the best days of my life”? Probably not.

- TWENTY-SIX AND A HALF:
A TRIBUTE TO "WEIRD AL" YANKOVIC!
It's the album "Weird Al" Yankovic called his "second favorite album coming out this month"! It's "Twenty-Six And A Half", a new "Weird Al" tribute CD compiled by Austin Aeschliman and Jace McLain. It contains 20 tracks of cover versions and parodies of many of Al's fan favorite songs from the past 35 years, including tracks by MC Chris, MC Frontalot, MC Lars, Devo Spice, Worm Quartet, Steve Goodie, Nuclear Bubble Wrap, Raymond & Scum, Insane Ian, TV's Kyle, Dino-Mike, and more. There's even a track by Al's band, titled "Al's Band", detailing their long career with Al. My contribution to this CD is a parody of Al's zydeco "Eddie Vedder" song in tribute to his drummer, webmaster, and all around nice guy, Jon "Bermuda" Schwartz, titled "My Baby's In Love With Jon Bermuda"!
