"What Does Spock Love? (The Women)" - on Dr. Demento's Leonard Nimoy Tribute

Included on today's episode of the Dr. Demento Show was a tribute to the late, great Leonard Nimoy.  I'm very proud that a song of mine was included in this tribute: "What Does Spock Love? (The Women)."  We will all miss Leonard Nimoy very much.
