I just heard from Ed Kaitz, one of my clients, that Dr. Demento will be
airing (on 100 stations?!) one of the sound designed word jazz cuts we
produced here last year. Supposedly the cut "1969 High School Hipster" will
air the last weekend in March.

Guess I can retire now. :)

Anyone know if the doctor's show runs where they are?

I haven't actually heard the show since about 1980 or so, but
here's a link-to-a-link to a list of Demento's stations, as well as
other places playing Carla's songs:

WHFS used to run it Sunday nights, but it's been years since they
carried it. A couple of times a year I go out looking to see if
there's a station that carries the show and streams the audio over the
Internet but I haven't found one yet. Sure miss it. Hope it's still
good.

I did, early in my career. He couldn't imagine where this 25 year old had
gotten the nerve to direct him.

But he gave me great reads anyway.

They're playing random Demento shows every Saturday and Sunday night on XM
Radio. I believe Sunday night is the only one in stereo, about 9PM Pacific
time on Channel 40 (aka "Deep Tracks").

The shows are not always current, but every so often they do play shows from
2005.

It would have been hard not to encounter Ken during the 50s through the 70s
if you were a Chicago VO person. When I was a new engineer at, now defunct,
Sound Studios, Ken was a day-in day-out regular. The first few sessions
were a little heady, because I was such a fan of his Word Jazz records
before moving to Chicago. Ken had his own studio in an old brownstone that
was also his home on the north side. When I embarked on a VO career, I did
a counter-point announcer to his signature tags for Chrysler, spots that Ken
also produced including doing the music. He was among the first with a
large synthesizer set-up. He also recorded later Word Jazz records in that
studio, working live with the background jazz musicians. A very cool guy.
Very kind. Liked the idea that many of his younger friends and fellow
performers thought of him as the last of the hippies. His son, Ken Jr., was
the engineer on many of the Chrysler sessions and also the electronic music
tech guy.

Ken was very cool like that up to the very end.
In the late 90's, a friend of mine wanted a particular Word Jazz tape in
a big hurry and Ken invited him to the house to pick it up. While he
was there, Ken showed him around and played him tapes he had made the
night before when the Greatful Dead had stopped by after their Chicago show.

Since we're talking about VO talent, has anybody here worked with Harry Elders?
I did a few projects with him in the 80s, and he was the nicest guy....

Your assessment is bang on. Harry was one of my idols. I met him, when I
first started VO freelancing. He did his share of commercials for both
national and local advertisers, but the foundation of his career was in
corporate and educational film and video both on camera and as a narrator.
He was a wonderful performer, who began his career in radio drama, when
Chicago was still important as a production center for network radio. I
once had a client tell me that Harry was his favorite performer. He said
that Harry telephoned him every couple of months. He inquired about the
client's family and his general well being. He offered some little story
about his own personal life--- a trip or a show he'd seen and then said
goodbye, rarely discussing business. This client said that Harry always
came to mind first, when he was casting anything even remotely Harry's type.
Harry retired to Colorado Springs, when he was 70 or so. In the 80s, when
AFTRA held their convention in Chicago, Harry attended. I asked him how he
was enjoying retirement. He said that it hadn't worked out quite like he
thought. As he took little driving trips around the Rockies with his wife,
he couldn't help but stop in to see some of the folks doing video work in
Salt Lake City, Santa Fe, Phoenix, Denver, and Cheyenne. In fact, he said,
he had had the best financial year of his life the year before. So, yes, he
was enjoying retirement just fine.

His son, Harry Jr. was a fine film and video camera operator who, I seem to
recall, died a few years ago.

His son died? Man, that blows. I don't recall his name but Harry used to talk
about him. I worked with him after he had moved to Co. Spgs. He was very
supportive of what I was doing and we had a nice friendship. Yes, he was working
more in retirement than ever. I think he spent about 3 days a week on the road,
in Chicago and New York. I'm sure he's passed on by now...

I used to catch it on QZK ("Q 94", 94.1 out of Keyser W.VA), but that's
been quite some time ago (They also used to run this show, "Bufallo Dick"
which usually managed to crack me up).
