The Dr. Demento Show (pre-recorded for KPPC) - September 5, 1971 (9p-11p)

NOTE: Dr. Demento moved to San Francisco at the end of July, 1971, for a nightly shift on KMPX. He intended to continue to do shows for KPPC every week, via tape, but he may have only done two - this one and the following week. He did a live show on KPPC on September 19, 1971. His stint on KMPX ended September 24, 1971, and he returned to Los Angeles and KPPC shortly thereafter.
NOTE: The show was running late (and may have also started late), so the KPPC DJ faded the last song early and omitted Dr. D's closing announcement.
