THE MENACE’S ATTIC (Since 2001!)
Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Dusty!
Each week Dennis The Menace goes up to his musical attic (his brain) to create sets of rock and roll music you’ve never heard together before and probably never will again. The songs are put together by a “loose theme” and might share some intricate musical heritage, make for the ultimate segué, or just sound good together.
Six decades are in the mix from doo-wop to British Invasion hits and rarities to punk to 80’s NewWave all topped with the best melodic rock of today. Every 7th Show is the 7th Edition where all music is played off 45rpm records with lots of flip sides and imports in the mix. Throughout the show Dennis offers one-of-a-kind factoids about the artists and the music, gives away concert and movie tickets, and talks about his daughter Kate a lot!
