Sometimes Dennis admits that the only reason he hosts "The Menace's Attic" is to get to meet the musicians he loves. Marshall Crenshaw is most definitely at the top of that list. Fact is, Dennis has put Marshall's "Whenever You're On My Mind" on more than one of the mix tapes he made for his dates, (and his wife and daughter Kate!).
