An Engineer's Dog:

Updated: Replaced video and link with YouTube original. Apparently the version I found was downloaded by some crap website that re-uploaded it to YouTube with their site URL plastered across the corner.

Dr. Demento goes off the air after 40 years—and becomes an Internet-exclusive broadcast!

This weekend, the Dr. Demento Show will have its final broadcast on KIYU, KLOO, WLVQ (QFM96), WRKH (The Rocket) and KOZT (The Coast).

This was a very painful decision for the Doctor...he really hates to let it go after almost 40 years...but he has come to agree with his manager and his family that it's necessary. The broadcast has been losing money for some time.

THE GOOD NEWS -- Dr. Demento intends to continue producing new shows every week for for the foreseeable future. A new one will be available Saturday morning, June 12, and more new shows will be posted every Saturday thereafter.

Low-quality streams available for $2 per show. High quality streams available for members of The Demento Online Club, $14.95 per month. Pay for a year up front and get the Doctor Demento Society Fan Club package. Alas, it doesn't look like it's available via podcast or even download, streaming only...
