    This will be a must buy.

    I don't know if the Thanksgiving episode was in season 1.
    Still, one of the funniest and best sitcoms ever.
    Ah to hear Les say "Chi Chi Rodriguez."

    Great that it's coming out.

    Boo that they didn't get all the musical clearance rights. Or I should say, too bad. I bet getting rights in perpetuity to Pink Floyd's "Pigs on the Wing" would be beyond expensive.

    I wonder if they got the rights to John Lennon's "Imagine" for the episode where the religous group protests the station over the rock 'n' roll format citing "Imagine" as one of the anti-God songs.
     
  4. What I wonder is if they got the rights to Bill Evans's gorgeous "Remembering The Rain," which Venus played at the end of that very moving episode about the deaths at the Who show that happened in Cincinnati while the show was on the air. A great piece of on-the-fly TV.
    Phone cops!

    The best song ever played on WKRP was the end credits song.
    No one knows the words.
    Second, was the opening theme.

    Yes, the turkey episode is in Season One.

    According to IMDB, it's not that no one knows the words -- it's that it HAS no words. The vocal was a scratch track, but the producers liked the sound of it so much, they kept it.

    One thing I've wondered: Did Harry Chapin's song WOLD influence the makers of WKRP? The narrator of WOLD is Johnny Fever to a T.
     
  9. The Mormon Tabernacle Choir's version of "You're Having My Baby" is probably safe, though.
    As is the jingle for Red Wigglers, The Cadillac Of Worms.

    I always thought it was Ian Hunter, but it's not. It sounds just like him.

    The end credits totally rock.

    Oh ... and Bailey Quarters is going to be responsible for the death of many kittens.
