I_Love_Cheesecake: Great moment, but that's not even the funniest episode of WKRP.
Bill_Wick's_Friend: thespindrifter: In a lot of cases, music gets misappropriated for the episode, and paid for later; rights are not negotiated at all in those cases, because they figured it was better to ask forgiveness than permission, which doesn't translate well into the after-market releases :(I don't know what TV shows you've done music clearances for, but their business and legal affairs department and their E&O Insurers must be asleep at the switch.Been in this biz for 15 years and I've never ever EVER heard anyone say "let's just infringe on the copyright and if/when they sue us we'll work out a deal". Doesn't happen. Can't happen. There's too many checks and balances along the way (E&O, cue sheet delivery, broadcaster's standards & practices dept) to allow that to happen.
rotsky: Ummm. I believe it's "as God AS my witness"./Just sayin'
