The Dr. Demento Show (on KSAN) - November 9, 1980 (6p-10p)

Special Topic: the disc jockeys of America; miniature music

NOTE: This was the last special show Dr. Demento did for KSAN. The station changed to a country music format on November 15, 1980. As with all but two of the special KSAN shows, this show was recorded in advance. Since the format change was not announced until November 7, 1980, Dr. Demento did not know this would be his last KSAN show when he recorded it around November 5, 1980.
