Dr. Demento's Demented Christmas Picks - December 1982

In a memo dated December 10, 1982, associate producer Robert Young informed stations about these special one-song Dr. Demento shows which were sent out on an LP. This was the first time Westwood One pressed Dr. Demento shows on vinyl, over a year before the regular weekly show switched to vinyl.

It is believed that this LP went to all Westwood One affiliates, not just those who carried Dr. Demento. Stations could air them at any time. It's not known which stations did or when.

The concept of one-song Dr. Demento shows was tried again the following year with Dr. Demento's Demented Pick Of The Week.

NOTE: Th LP label calls it Dr. Demento's Demented Christmas Hits rather than Picks. The LP also included the same 6 songs "in the clear" on the flip side, without Dr. D's intro/outro so stations could play the songs in their regular programming if desired.
