Dr. Demento aka Barret Hansen is a radio announcer who specializes in novelty songs, comedy, and strange or unusual recordings dating from the early days of radio to today. A native of Minneapolis, Minnesota, the doctor has been spinning the wax for decades, has a master's degree in folklore and ethnomusicology, and brought older comic musical artists such as Spike Jones, Benny Bell, Yogi Yorgesson, and Tom Lehrer to a new generation. His show is also the one that introduced the world to a very young Weird Al Yankovich.

He was admitted along with R. Crumb to the Order of the Pineapple on 18 January 2012.
