This Day in History: 1978-08-20
D.T. got bored one day watching the CBS Sunday Night rerunfest, so right in the middle of The Jeffersons, he shut off the TV, and turned on the radio station he usually listens to for music, KGB 101.5 in San Diego. BUT…instead of hearing the usual Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, and the Stones, he heard artists such as Tom Lehrer, Spike Jones, Frank Zappa and a block of Christmas funny songs in August. Yup, he accidentally discovered The Doctor Demento Show on the radio, eight years after it debut on KMET in Los Angeles and had been in syndication for about half that long. The rest is history.
