Beefalo Bill Burk was on hand – and added his miscellaneous insanities to the performance – on the day that “Another One Rides The Bus” was performed live for the first time on The Dr. Demento Show on September 14, 1980.

Besides being a long time mainstay on The Dr. Demento Show,  Beefalo Bill and Weird Al were college classmates and both deejays at KCPR.   It was on a camping trip to Bill’s family cabin in which Al wrote  “Another One Rides The Bus”.  Bill is also a professional nature photographer, with one of his photographs appearing in the upcoming Black & White & Weird All Over – The Lost Photographs of “Weird Al” Yankovic ’83 – ’86 book.
