Even after almost eleven years of being played on nationally syndicated and legendary comedy music radio program "the Dr. Demento Show" and rising to become his most requested artist of the 21st Century, I still have some milestones left to hit. And tonight, I hit another one. For the first time, a new song of mine DEBUTED ON THE FUNNY FIVE COUNTDOWN AT #1!!!
"HOLDING OUT FOR HIRO" is my parody of Bonnie Tyler's "Holding Out For A Hero" about the hit sci-fi TV show "Heroes", centering around the character Hiro Nakamura. It features Carrie Dahlby on vocals, music by Jared Ringold, and keyboards by ShoEboX of Worm Quartet. After two weeks in a row of airplay on the show, "Hiro" made it's debut appearance on the weekly Funny Five countdown of the most requested songs of the week at #1! I want to thank all you Dr. Demento fans, Heroes fans, FuMP fans, and Luke Ski fans out there who requested it and shot it to the top like a flying politician carring his exploding brother! If you'd like to hear the episodes featuring the song's appearances, you can listen to them (for $2 an episode) at the show's official website, http://www.drdemento.com
If you'd like for the good Doctor to keep playing the song on his show, and also keep it on the weekly Funny Five countdown, then I encourage you to submit a REQUEST for him to play it again! You can do so at the show's official request page, http://www.clamhead.com/drd.php
. You can also request by emailing email@example.com, calling the request line 562-ODD-TUNE, or you can snail mail them at: The Dr. Demento Show, P.O. Box 884, Culver City, CA 90232.
If you'd like to DOWNLOAD THE SONG FOR FREE, you can still do so at the main page of the website of "The Funny Music Project", also known as "THE FuMP", at http://www.theFuMP.com
. It'll be up there until the end of the day on October 11th. After that, it will move to the archive page, where it will cost $.99 to download. You can also find it at my MySpace page, http://www.myspace.com/thegreatlukeski
