Despite the name, “Odd Numbers” isn’t a documentary about mathematics. Instead, and to the delight of those who are math challenged, “Odd Numbers” is a novelty music program filed with odd songs and comedy bits. Hosted by Doug Chatham, each hour-long program presents a wide range of funny and eccentric music from a cross selection of genres including country, pop, rock and tunes too weird for any category. The program features well-known entertainers including “Weird Al” Yankovic, Monty Python, Spike Jones and many more. “Odd Numbers” can be heard monthly on the first Friday at 7:00pm, joining the Friday night lineup including “Grant Alden’s Field Notes.”
Doug Chatham is originally from Taylorsville, North Carolina. Doug is an Associate Professor of Mathematics at Morehead State University with a Ph.D. from the University of Tennessee at Knoxville. A member of the MSU faculty since 2001, Doug is also past chair of the MSU Faculty Senate. For Doug, “Odd Numbers” is the latest in a long string of eccentric, extracurricular activities which include writing satirical newspaper columns, inventing variations on the game of chess and mastering his knowledge of the English language in community spell-a-thons. Doug is a fan of spoken, written and musical comedy and has a steadily-growing collection of novelty music.
