How does Dennis The Menace come up with these sets? Well, it’s kind of like Russian roulette. He starts with way more songs from six decades of rock and roll than there is time to play, and sorts them in ways that even he can’t explain. Then he puts a few into each set, and attempts to write a fun introduction to each one. About 24 hours before show time, he looks at the playlist again to see if he still likes it and often changes it again. But the most fun of all, is that he never practices the segués ahead of time. It’s real live CD’s and vinyl which means scratches, skips and engineering mistakes that are often the most fun part of the show.
