got an early christmas gift sunday; wkrp on dvd!

hadn't seen an episode in years. it was just as much fun as i remember.

they didn't get all the music rights so some of the music in the episode i watched was replaced with generic rock music.


dr. johnny fever is still my hero.

LOL yeah, it's like the Ginger or Maryann choice. You'd love to have a fling with Ginger, but it's Maryann you'd rather marry.

Man, Bailey was pretty smokin' too!

LOOOOOOVVVEEEE KRP.

Still really funny after all these years, and a nice step back in time. Our local talk radio morning show plays a clip from the "Turkeys Away" episode every Thanksgiving.

It's a shame about the music replacement, as in some cases it resulted in the editing out of some scenes, as well as the punch missing from a few jokes (notable one where Johnny is playing a Pink Floyd song with dogs barking and Mr. Carlson walks into the booth, questioning him about the tune).

Music rights...curse them!

 Re: wkrp
its typical greed and stupidity. gets us humans every time...

my fav episode came later in the show.

they go to a sales conference and herb meets a woman who knows him but he can't place her.... turns out to be pretty darn funny.

the turkey episode is great too. they have an audio commentary on that episode. the guy who wrote the show claims it really happened. some program manager he knew tried it in texas.

 Re: wkrp
Another favorite is the one where Johnny does a live remote from a stereo store, which winds up getting robbed live on the air by a disgruntled unemployed DJ.

Didn't know there were extras on that set. May have to see about renting it to hear the commentaries. I know there was a book about WKRP written in the late 90s, but I think it may be out of print now. Apparently a lot of the episodes are based on real incidents, gleaned from talking with and having former radio station employees on the writing staff.

 Re: wkrp
I remember seeing previews of the show before it premiered where they showed Andy putting up the KISS poster on the wall. That caught my attention as I was heavily into KISS at the time. 8)

WKRP is now airing on FamilyNet aka RFD TV nightly at 8pm. That is Ch 242 on Verizon in Boston.

Also, for the record I was always more fond of Bailey than Jennifer.
