The Dr. Demento Show (live on KPPC) - April 29, 1971 (9p-11p)

NOTE: This is the last Thursday night Dr. Demento show on KPPC. The show moved to Sunday nights three days later, and Sunday night became the regular time for the show in Los Angeles more than a quarter of a century.

NOTE: This was the last time that Dr. Demento's show was part of Steven Segal's timeslot on KPPC, although it returned as part of Steven's show on KMET in December.
