    How about when Johnny turned evil and became Rip Tide to host that disco show?

    And the great Canadian band The Rheostatics did a song 'The Tarleks" where Frank Bonner appeared in character.

    And you forgot the Lou Grant Show. Between that, WKRP and the White Shadow, it was TV at its finest.

    Sure, it's another show, but still a TV Land veteran.

    The "What does the yellow light mean?" scene from Taxi.

    I got the complete set of 90 episodes on DVD last year on eBay.
    Still one of the best written series ever.

    VENUS FLYTRAP, at Gone With The Wind Estates: "I feel a little guilty about this. I advised Mr. Caravella to buy here, and I'm afraid he's a little unhappy."
    CONDO LADY: "Our arrangement has been consumated, Mr. Caravella."
    JOHNNY CARAVELLA (aka JOHNNY FEVER): "See, I feel like I've been consumated..."

    What a great show this was. As someone who works in radio, it's so close to the truth on some things even now it's scary.

    Indeed. That's why they called the show, "WKRP in San Francisco."

    Thank god I was around to see the show when it ran on regular TV. My somewhat unhip (but more hip than I ever knew, if you know what I mean) parents actually watched it, too.
    When Johnny had to stay at Bailey's house because his apartment was being painted ... oh, my.

    I think this show was a little early for me, but I've always found it funny.

    I hate the royalties thing. It's the reason they'll never release Third Watch.
