My Name Is John Daker…

Last Updated on: 15th February 2023, 10:15 am

A couple of updates here in 2023.

  1. The links in the post don’t work anymore, so this two and a half minute video of Jon Daker’s performance will have to do unless I can track down video of the whole thing again.
  2. John or Jon (I’m not sure why his name is spelled differently everywhere you look) died on February 20th, 2022. He was 82.

What if you put on a talent show and nobody with talent showed up? Well, my guess is it would probably look something like this.

Clicking on the link above will take you to a page full of video clips from a truly awful talent night put on by a music teacher and her students in Peoria Illinois that aired on a public access television station around 15 years ago. You can read the website’s FAQ for a more complete explanation of exactly what’s going on if you want one, but the most important thing is that this stuff is absolutely terrible, we’re talking Miserable Melodies terrible here.

I’m not sure what’s more disturbing about this whole thing, the fact that any of these people think they are funny or can sing, or that I can’t stop watching it.
