That is what we have to do in life; accept the “What is” and work around it.”

Our Favorite Stories In Music - Dr. Demento Covered In Punk
New Jersey Stage published its 25,000th story in December 2021.

This week's choice is Dr. Demento Covered In Punk, a look at a special compilation album with artists covering memorable songs from the legendary radio program.

“You know right where you are when you get here, the big black ominous awning outside, the sign is a sharp centerpiece for the room right when you walk in; it has character which I think is very important for a shop like this.
