WKRP In Cincinnati


WKRP In Cincinnati Cast

Series Description

WKRP In Cincinnati was a 30 minute comedy series on CBS about a radio station that was in financial trouble and the station manager thought he knew how to turn things around. The new DJs that he brought in were not quite what the station owner was used to dealing with however! With names like Johnny Fever and Venus Flytrap ... well, you get the idea. The station's news reporter kept trying to do Hog Reports instead of the news that the audience wanted to hear. Even the station manager was a bit "flaky" as he had to get his mother's permission for everything or risk incurring her wrath! Put it all together and you get a total "madhouse" and a pretty enjoyable viewing experience.

WKRP In Cincinnati Trivia

    

WKRP in Cincinnati was suppossedly at 1530 on the AM dial and the station's mascot was a Carp (fish).

There was no real radio station in Cincinnati with the call letters WKRP but, after the show began, a station in Georgia applied for those letters and got them. The producers of the TV show wanted to sue but the FCC said that only a legitimate radio station can own the rights to call letters. By the way, there was a "WKRC" in Cincinnati before the show started.

Several times during the show a character would talk about "Mayor Springer." Today, we know his as "Jerry Springer" the talk-show host. Yes, he was actually the mayor of Cincinnati at that time!

Loni Anderson was the 1st runner-up in the 1964 Miss Minnesota contest.

In the pilot episode, it's stated that WKRP is a 50,000 watt station. In the rest of the series, it's referred to as a 5,000 watt station.

Doctor Johnny Fever had been fired from a job in Los Angeles for saying the word "Booger" on the air.

The TV show was nominated for 2 Emmys and 3 Golden Globes, all for Loni Anderson as Best Actress. Unfortunately, she didn't win any of them.

WKRP In Cincinatti Theme Song

Title: WKRP in Cincinnati

By: T. Wells and H. Wilson


Baby, if you've ever wondered,
Wondered whatever became of me,
I'm living on the air in Cincinnati,
Cincinnati, WKRP.

Got kind of tired packing and unpacking,
Town to town, up and down the dial.
Maybe you and me were never meant to be,
But baby think of me once in awhile.

I'm at WKRP in Cincinnati...
