Hot DVD News-- WKRP in Cinncinatti
This just in: the first season of "WKRP in Cincinatti" is coming out on DVD in April! This includes their most famous episode, indeed one of the funniest episodes of a television show ever, "Turkeys Away" in which a Thanksgiving promotion goes disasterously awry. It's become a Thanksgiving tradition for my son and I to watch the copy I taped off of television a couple of years ago.
One of the issues in DVD releases has been the paying of music royalties. In a show about a radio station, you can imagine there were a lot of musical issues to iron out. I truthfully didn't think that this show would ever get released on DVD.
Until April, enjoy this clip from "Turkeys Away," which first aired October 30, 1978.
