One of the best TV shows ever & I have all 4 seasons on DVD. Thanksgiving episode is a classic.

42 years ago, and there is a Dolly Parton joke in there, and it is still funny.

Wow, I was six months old. Weird to think about.

I thought it was 1985....

No wait, that was the Twin Pines Mall...
No, the Lone Pine Mall...

1985 was probably "Chopping Mall." Classic.

I was six years old, almost seven. I don't remember seeing it but I'm sure I did because my parents watched every episode of WKRP and I watched whatever they watched because they were bigger than me and I wasn't quite literate so what else was I gonna do? My point is: my parents were TV hogs. Jerks.

Anywhere to get the show with the original music?  I understand the licensing has ripped it apart.

Saw all the reruns a couple years ago. It's  funnier now then teenage me appreciated back when.

Last night my Mom tells me WKRP is on. I could hear the beginning and yes it was "Turkey's Away." I ran in and told her to not change the channel because I'm going to watch it with her. She had never, or didn't remember, seeing it. Now she has. She hasn't laughed that much since Dad died in August.

That is probably the best 10 minutes of sitcom to have ever been made.

The most recent dvd set, I think from Shout Factory, got pretty close from what I've heard. Maybe 90% or more intact.

That is correct. The latest DVD set from Shout Factory (2015) had nearly all of the original music. It is only missing a couple of Led Zepplin songs.

Now I'm curious.....what was so funny about your dad's death?

Howard Hessman's Dr. Fever was a big reason why I got into radio.

"BOOGER!"

I watched it in college. I had to stake out my space in the TV room on Monday nights to be sure and see it as well as "White Shadow" and "Lou Grant."

I watched the whole series in reruns when I was living in Belgium a few years ago. Crazy to think this aired 5 years before I was born.

I actually saw a turkey drop in yellville Arkansas circa 2008. It's part of the towns festival.

What's that from?


" In 1989 Michael Galinsky was a religious studies major at NYU. He took a photography class and started taking pictures at a local mall for an assignment. When the class finished, his professor encouraged him to continue doing photography, so he went around the country with a friend taking pictures at American malls. Those pictures were compiled in a book called Malls Across America, which was successfully funded on Kickstarter in 2011. That book is out of print but copies of it are going for $1,000."

It was filmed at CBS studio's New York Street.  Every thing is still there, just repainted.  Its a police station these days on some series.

I was about 8 years old and I remember watching it a little but not getting a lot of the jokes.  I did think Bailey was cool, though.

TVs were expensive in the 70s, and they paid for it.

There's nothing edgy about crap from the 70's and 80's.
