The Dr. Demento Show (live on KSAN) - September 9, 1979 (6p-10p)

NOTE: This was the first of over a year's worth of special 4-hour shows done for KSAN in San Francisco. In most cases, the show was pre-recorded at KMET a few days before the airdate and express mailed to KSAN. But for this first show, and again on May 4, 1980 (live from Tower Records), Dr. Demento and Artie Barnes went to San Francisco to do the show live. The last special KSAN show was recorded for November 9, 1980. KSAN dropped the show after changing formats.
