CONTEST RULES: Write your own Polka. It can be slow. It can be fast. It can be short and sweet or totally epic man. It can have words, it can have no words, it can be sparse, it can be crazy. Bottom line is: YOU WRITE IT and then send it to yvonne@wfmu.org

WHAT'S THE BIG IDEA? The big idea is this: All submissions will be played on an episode of Dance With Me, Stanley. The listeners will vote for the winner. The winner receives a prize. That is all. The deadline is determined by the amount of submissions and will be announced soon.

With love,

I had a Dr Demento T-shirt once. Lost it somewhere along the way..... :(
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 8:12pm Kamp Climax:

Wait, the reason I listen to this show, is that STASHU is the embodiment of punk in 2018. As punk as it ever was.
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 8:12pm Number Six:

Greetings Dr. D! You've helped me stay demented since the '70s. :)

Does the Dr. have any guilty pleasure music? Music your slightly ashamed to admit that you like in public.
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 8:15pm Kamp Climax:

Ask him Maghu question. A great question.

@adam: And you better believe people were dancing!
  Mon. 2/12/18 8:24pm Listener Robert:

I was friendly with someone (who later became a Harvard anthropology prof) who was Dr. Demento's dorm mate in college. But that was before the latter got his doctorate and was Barry Hansen.
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 8:26pm Kamp Climax:

This is when you know your cool, when not being asked to work with the misfits and ramones is the highest compliment of your life, but getting a song of yours covered in german.
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 8:26pm Switchblade Batman:

Wait, Dr Demento is still around? I thought he you know... is in the big polka hall in the sky.

  Mon. 2/12/18 8:28pm ron:

just tuned in 15 minutes ago so apologies if anyone else has pointed this out, but Buffalo, NY has a huge and thriving Polish community with one of the biggest Dyngus Day celebrations in the States. There is an amazing range of what I call “post modern polka”—including covers of …
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 8:28pm DC:

Great interview, and Demento even knew about that doggone kishka!
  Mon. 2/12/18 8:28pm Listener Robert:

Demento's still around, but meanwhile I've completely lost track of my anarchist anthropologist friend; I just remember his first name was Joe.

whoa i came back up just in time for this b-52s tune
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 8:33pm Kamp Climax:

Next mic break she'll be out of breath. She is hyped on the Demento interview. She's dancing all over the studio. Ken Freedman, why in the hell can't we have studio-vision?
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 8:33pm Devin B.:

Amazing interview! Thanks Stashu, John, and Dr. D!!
  Mon. 2/12/18 8:33pm ron:

In fact, JUST before I happened to tune in I was putting the finishing touches on this relevant bit of ranting:

Was that a weird al original ?
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 8:44pm Kamp Climax:

By 6:50 time New Mexico time, she'll be completely done, at this pace, Dave better be ready to come on early. Stashu can't keep up this pace, she hasn't even screamed over the mic yet. She is completely spent.

I love this band the blue meanies, cause it involves one of my favorite wrestlers from ECW.

First time ever, Stash has been defeated by the music and dancing.
Avatar Mon. 2/12/18 8:46pm KidProJoe:

Love Blue Meanies. Every December 23 they would play a show and end it with You're a Mean One Mr Grinch. Christmas just isn't the same anymore.

"Beat the Brat" is a Ramones song.

She's lying, you can tell when she's really dancing.
  Mon. 2/12/18 8:49pm Michael Bova:

So it was a twist on a chili peppers song ? Wouldn't know the chilli peppers if they were in front of me
