Here’s some good news! I offer hearty congratulations to a good and talented friend of mine on the other side of town will be getting a long overdue moment in the sun. Two days back, Craig E. Smith, a.k.a. Max DeGroot, recorded a parody tribute to British overnight sinqing sensation Susan Boyle [link]. This tribute, titled “Ode to Susan Boyle” [link], is scheduled to air nationally on the Dr. Demento Show the weekend of May 9. Please consult the Dr. Demento web site [link] for when it’s scheduled to air in your area.
Like Ms. Boyle, Craig is a homely sort who can really belt out material from Les Miserables. Here’s hoping this leads to a similar overnight success story.
