The Dr. Demento Show - Dr. Demento Special #1: Dementia On Wheels

NOTE: This show was prepared around May 1975 as a special for stations to air presumably whenever they wanted. No exact airdates are known. It's possible this was used by some stations to fill the hiatus between show #50 and show #51.
