Weird Al Yankovic began writing parodies of popular songs in the 1970s. His parody of Michael Jackson’s “Beat It” (called “Eat It”) propelled him to worldwide fame and acclaim. Dare to be Stupid is his third album featuring parodies of Madonna, Huey Lewis and the News, and the Kinks, as well as several original songs. Daniel Francis came in to talk about how he discovered the album and the artist for an upcoming episode of The Inner Groove.
Their discussion along with the complete album will air Saturday evening at 7 pm on The Inner Groove program.
