telephone number to contact the Dr. Demento Request Line: 562-ODD-TUNE (562-633-8863). This is a toll call, but not a 900-toll.

There was an 800/900 number for the doctor: 1-800-631-8858. This apparently is the Time/Life Comment Line, NOT a request line (i.e., they want comments about the CD collections). Not sure if TL is still selling this collection.

syndicator for the show is now:  "Talonian Productions". Many stations receive the show on a barter basis, according to the system commonly used in radio and TV syndication: the stations get the show at reduced or no cost based on the reciprocation of the advertising time. Non-comercial stations, those which carry no advertising, and stations in markets too small to have their listenership measured by Arbitron, are charged a fee for the show.

In the past, no official list was provided by the syndicators, but now Talonian has posted the official list of stations at and our listing is regularly checked against theirs.

Typically letter writing campaigns to stations have been used successfully to get the show on the playlist. An additional activity that can be done, and that really makes a difference, is to line up advertisers for the show and present the show and them to a station. The usenet newsgroup often has radio station information posted (phone #s, locations, etc.) that may help in letter writing/other campaigns.

address for Talonian Producations:  TALONIAN PRODUCTIONS (TALONIANPRODUCTIONS-DOM), P.O. BOX 545, SEAL BEACH, CA 90740.

the Radio Log is in no way affiliated with any syndicators or etc. it always has and always will remain of, by and for the demented souls out there. We now also add a statement that the only usage of this log is for listeners enjoyment (i.e., NOT FOR PROFIT). Please do not abuse the charity of all the hackers who have helped assemble this list. It has been assembled by information provided by you, the internet surfer, and you only. Thanx.
