When it comes to the music on-air, nobody does it better than WKRP In Cincinnati. On October 28, 2014, Shout! Factory will release the highly anticipated WKRP In Cincinnati: The Complete Series in a 13-disc set. The box set contains loads of bonus features and original music including tracks by artists such as The Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen, AC/DC, Eric Clapton, Bob Marley, The Doors, Grateful Dead, Blondie, Tom Petty, The Cars, Elvis Costello, Marvin Gaye, Paul McCartney and Wings, Van Morrison, The Police, Otis Redding & more, all waiting to transport viewers back in time to that wacky radio station in Ohio.
Pairing an impeccable ensemble cast with sharp wit and great tunes, WKRP In Cincinnati celebrated four amazing seasons, making it the quintessential sitcom for music lovers. Join everyone’s favorite radio DJs—the rockin’ Dr. Johnny Fever (Howard Hesseman) and the soulful Venus Flytrap (Tim Reid)—as they weave through the inner-office antics of the crazy WKRP staff; including the station’s program director Andy (Gary Sandy), indecisive manager Arthur (Gordon Jump), advertising executive Herb (Frank Bonner), quirky news man Les Nessman (Richard Sanders), young ingénue Bailey (Jan Smithers) and, of course, the station’s lovely receptionist, Jennifer (Loni Anderson).
WKRP In Cincinnati: The Complete Series bonus features include the “Do My Eyes Say Yes?” featurette; “A ‘Fish Story’ Story” featurette; and WKRP In Cincinnati: A Paley Center Reunion, a panel discussion from 2014 featuring cast members Howard Hesseman, Loni Anderson, Tim Reid, Gary Sandy, and Jan Smithers, Executive Producer / Writer Hugh Wilson, Director Asaad Kelada, and the Director of the show’s pilot, Jay Sandrich, all moderated by rock radio legend Jim Ladd.
WKRP in Cincinnati has had a complicated history of music rights restrictions. To make this the most comprehensive DVD release possible, Shout! Factory has done its best to include every scene uncut and with as much original music as possible.
