Dr D Returns to Portland, Oregon
Dr. Demento will be making his annual visit to Reed College in Portland, Oregon this month.
He will be giving three talks which are open to the public. All talks are at 7 PM (note time change from last year) in Vollum Lecture Hall near the center of the Reed campus.
Admission is $5.00.
Friday, January 25: "Grandpa's Pornograph." Soft-core and hard-core porn on phonograph records, from the 1890s to the 1960s. Not recommended for children!
Saturday, January 26: Blues From the Beginning. Before he became Dr. Demento, Barry Hansen was a blues collector and researcher, who wrote about blues in his book "Rhino's Cruise Through the Blues."
Sunday, January 27: The Life and Music of Frank Zappa…with audio and video examples including excerpts from Dr. D's interviews with Mr. Zappa. This has become Dr. D's most popular lecture topic.
Reed College is located at 3203 SE Woodstock Blvd. in Portland. Vollum Lecture Hall is in the Vollum College Center. If you use the main entrance, Vollum will be straight ahead. To reach the main parking lot, take the first right after entering the campus.
