Geek FM: Tom Lehrer

Growing up, parody and satire songs were amongst my favorites. We had 8-tracks and LPs of “Goofy Gold” and “Funky Favorites”, both chock full of classic novelty tunes that we practically wore out as kids. “Weird” Al Yankovic was one of my favorite artists. I got turned on to Dr. Demento collections in college, of which Tom Lehrer was a staple.

Lehrer’s stuff is cerebral, yet funny and decidedly sharp. It has a wicked edge that appeals to me greatly.

About Shedrick

I am a professional librarian and a part-time writer that's working to do that the other way around. I currently live in North Texas in the lovely city of Denton (“The Home of Happiness“) with my lovely wife and the obligatory demon-spawn cats. When not writing, gaming, or watching cheezy kung-fu flicks, I can sometimes be found in a pub (or the American equivalent) enjoying a fine brew.
