    1) Al appeared on The Tomorrow Show with Tom Snyder on April 21, 1981 where he performed "Another One Rides The Bus"

    2) 17 albums

    1983 - "Weird Al" Yankovic

    1984 - "Weird Al" Yankovic in 3-D

    1985 - Dare to Be Stupid

    1986 - Polka Party!

    1988 - Even Worse

    1988 - "Weird Al" Yankovic's Greatest Hits

    1989 - UHF - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack and Other Stuff

    1992 - Off the Deep End

    1993 - The Food Album

    1993 - Alapalooza

    1994 - Permanent Record: Al in the Box

    1994 - Greatest Hits Volume II

    1995 - The TV Album

    1996 - Bad Hair Day

    1999 - Running With Scissors

    2003 - Poodle Hat

    2006 - Straight Outta Lynwood

    I did not list the two "Special Project" records because (1) on "Peter and the Wolf" his website states that the record is "this warped classical children's record featuring narration and poems written by Weird Al Yankovic and music arranged, composed and performed by synthesizer whiz Wendy Carlos" - thus it is not a traditional Weird Al offering, and (2) on the "Babalu" record "he is not actually heard anywhere on this collection" (again, per his website).

    3) Al was born at 1:56 PM on Friday, October 23, 1959
