Brief Intro (release date, etc.)

“Goin’ Back to L.A. (2010 mix)” (released on 6/5/2010) - celebrates the old days of driving 120 miles to Los Angeles to hear the Dr. Demento Show because the fan’s hometown wouldn’t carry the show on their radio stations in the fan’s radio market. The driving trek takes place on a Sunday in 1981 when the Doc used to do a live four-hour show on a now-defunct radio station.

Background about the song:

Long Description: This is something that I used to do way back in the early 1980s some weeks when I was 21, had a beaten-up 1970 Torino, gas was just $1.19 a gallon, minumum wage was $3.35 an hour, and no station in San Diego carried the Dr. Demento Show. Back in 1981, thanks to Dr. Demento going on Tomorrow with Tom Snyder and plugging his four-hour live show on the late KMET 94.7, I got some way to get demented for four hours a week from 6pm-10pm.

Problem. I live in San Diego where there’s a strong station on 94.9, interfering with my reception of 94.7 in Los Angeles. So I had to either put up with a crappy radio receiving interference, or drive up to El Toro or somewhere and hang out at a burger stand in the area where I could receive 94.7 clearly. I used to bring some tape cassettes and a tape deck to tape the shows, dub some of my favorites onto another tape, then erase over the tapes I used to tape the show every week.
