I wanted to let all board posters know that "WKRP In Cincinnati" will be coming to Me TV beginning Monday,April 2nd 2018-"WKRP" is one of the funniest & best written sitcoms of all time-More importanly,it gave non-radio people a behind the scenes look into the medium-By the way,it will be seen at 9:30 PM Eastern Time/8:30 PM Central Time.

A while back,Shout Factory released "WKRP In Cincinnati-The Complete Series" on DVD-The disclaimer on the reverse side of the boxed set states that excerpts of specific songs are featured in the various episodes-When Fox Video released Season 1 of "WKRP" a while back,generic music was heard.
Seriously with MeTV and Buzzr there as nationally distributed channels I may end up switching from Spectrum to them. We have Me-TV, but not Buzzr even though it is on OTA via Fox here. Just no way to DVR anything without buying a TIVO and..well...no, just no.
Thanks for the info on Dish carrying MeTV and Buzzr. I watch those channels as well as Antenna TV. I used to have DirecTV, but I switched to Fios in order to get the OTA channels. However, I preferred DirecTV's service a lot better, and I figured I would switch back to them if they ever carried OTA channels. Maybe I'll consider going back to Dish instead (I had them before DirecTV).
They should let WWE do musical edits. The way they overdub Muzak in their shows because they won’t pay for anything and everyone sounds like they are mumbling, the crowd of out of rhythm when they clap to the beat, and all is classic and I’m sure it would add so much to this show.

Speaking of the music heard on WKRP, a few episodes allowed viewers inside the private lives (i.e. the apartments) of Jennifer and Les Nessman. And...
...if the melodious doorbell inside Jennifer's apartment sounded familiar, I believe it was a brief, generic sampling of an instrumental called "Fly Me To The Moon." The song's most popular version reached #14 on the Hot 100 in 1963 by musical arranger Joe Harnell. A most-fitting tune for the classy character.
...but there was nothing generic about the record that Les played in his apartment for his groupie/girlfriend in an episode that was seen on MeTV last night. It was the original "Chances Are" by Johnny Mathis. How did that one slip by the generic music sensors?
Pete, was that episode from one of the later seasons? I noticed some of the later seasons' episodes that aired on Antenna TV years ago kept some of the music intact (including a BEATLES song in the background of one scene).
