This comment contains details about content of the show.
This was one of my favorite episodes of of the Behind the Music series, simply because Weird Al does not take himself seriously. Also, there is no trace of what has become the Behind the Music Mantra, "the same things that had brought them together now began to tear them apart". It is not a crash and burn story. It is about a guy who went to architecture school (where some of his friends admit they thought he was already kind of "weird") and left to pursue a career writing music parodies. His fascination with the disc jockey Dr. Demento inspired him and the jockey helped him to get his work on the air. There is a very funny bit about an early concert where the audience was hostile to Al when he opened for another band. And, hey, had we ever seen Judy Tenuta appear as a talking head for anyone before? If you want a show that is like its subject, witty, mad but in control, this is for you. WHEN ARE THESE EPISODES GOING TO BE AVAILABLE FOR RENTAL OR PURCHASE ?!?
