WELCOME BACK! Randall Ferryman is coming to town and he plans to bury us ALL! Herb has hit the sales guy jackpot. One of the biggest funeral home chains in the country has its sights set on the Queen City and they seem to want to deliver big bags of money to the Flimm Building.  Herb "did the deal" but...hold on a minute, there was very little deal to be done. Wasn't that WAY too easy? Andy wants to know what's going on here!! Turns out, the Dead Guy in the Lobby wants a jingle in addition to all of those sweet, sweet spots. Can the gang can pull together a jingle??! This just might work. Venus was in a band, Bailey can actually sing and Jennifer is making smoke come out of Herb's ears. Yeah, yeah...one day we're all gonna buy it, but until that day comes, you need to hit "play" and enjoy the young and swingin' sounds of the Mighty KRP Singers!! Randall is 'ready to cook'!WATCH ALONG DETAILS...[Want to watch along with us? It's a blast!! We highly recommend the 'Shout Factory' boxed DVD set of the entire WKRP series.

WELCOME BACK!Hey, Fellow Babies! Prepare yourselves for something COMPLETELY different! We're on a holiday break but we didn't want to leave you hanging for a full two weeks. So, we decided to do a little something "extra"...which is why we're calling this a "WKRP-Cast Extra"!! Huge thanks to Casey Piotrowski, writer of "Contest Nobody Could Win" for sharing the outline with us. Casey said they were handed out during a new writer's meeting in the fall of 1978. The "Turkeys Away" outline served as an example..."do it like this." Turns out, the 'outline' is actually a narrative description of the episode, complete with character lines and everything! When we first read through it, we thought, "this is kinda cool...you can sorta see the episode in there...". We decided a good way to share it with you would be to read it...word-for-word, start to finish. A lot easier to digest than a downloadable PDF, but if you want a downloadable PDF of the script in case you want to follow along, here's that, too:https://1drv.ms/b/s!Avq586TFhfXtgtIza9xg6EUNn0_yvQ?e=9oRgs2(if it's not showing as a hot link, copy and paste into a browser address bar.)WATCH ALONG DETAILS...[Want to watch along with us?

WELCOME BACK!A young mother is alone in Cincinnati. Her only friend in the world is the Doctor! She says she hears him on his show every morning and she just KNOWS she can trust him with her newborn. When she leaves the baby at the station, the little sweetie melts everyone's heart...well, everyone except Herb. She's a little standoffish when it comes to Herb. The baby has standards! Johnny gets a taste of fatherhood (and, possibly, the yellow stuff).  Check it out! A young man named Danny Openden is playing the baby. We found Danny! And, even cooler, we found Danny's mom, Lori Openden! Lori has spent her life in television casting and she just happened to have a newborn when this storyline came around. Lori gave us some GREAT behind the scenes details about Danny's time on WKRP.  Grab a diaper, fellow babies, it's time for a change!! Take a big bite of the green stuff, hum a little Brahm's Lullaby and hit "play" before the people from Children and Family Services get here!!WATCH ALONG DETAILS...[Want to watch along with us?

WELCOME BACK!Every pot has a lid, right? Well Herb's lid, Lucille, is on the loose!! That's right, it's the return of the fantastically funny Edie McClurg as Lucille Tarlek!! Want tunes? We've got Elvis, Old Blue Eyes, Eddie Money and J. Geils!! Want drama...pathos...DIP?? We've got that, TOO!! Lucille wants a divorce and she's booted Herb from their happy home. Herb winds up sleeping on the bullpen couch...then at Johnny's place...and if we're not careful Art's gonna wind up tearing his whole house down.  Grab a Pina Colada and let's head over to Johnny's pad. Oh, hold on...here comes some shag carpet, Lenny Bruce and a whole bunch of free drinks! If you've ever wanted to visit the King Kong Lounge, this is the time, fellow babies!! Spritz yourself with a little Brut, make sure some chest hair is showing, and hit "play"...it's the best decision you'll make all night, gorgeous (wink-wink).WATCH ALONG DETAILS...[Want to watch along with us?

WELCOME BACK! Johnny's been gone for about two weeks and the gang is on EDGE! It doesn't help matters that sleazy record company promo man Murray Gressler is sniffing around. Murray will do just about anything to get his records played. Andy should have known better than to hire the deejay Murray recommended, but he needed to get the time slot filled! Doug Winner, the new morning man, turns out to be a smiling but shifty jerk who's willing to throw Johnny under the bus to protect his precious Coke supply (and we don't mean the cola kind).  The WKRP-Cast is nothing but "Miami Vice" and Odor Eaters this week! It'll make more sense when you push "play" and join us!!WATCH ALONG DETAILS...[Want to watch along with us? It's a blast!!

WELCOME BACK! Something strange is happening around the ol' KRP Ranch. It's 14 degrees but Johnny is playing Beach Boys like it's the Fourth of July! (at least, it's some bargain basement semblance of Beach Boys on the ol' Shout! Factory disks). We discover the good Doctor has been called to practice back in L.A. The competitor to the station that fired him over the whole "Booger" thing has come calling with a GREAT offer! Will Johnny head for huge bucks, sunny skies and sweet revenge? Can the gang keep Johnny in Cincinnati?? It's a plot laced with high stakes, deceit and Jennifer's...um...charms! It's a story so big it might not get told in one WEEK!! Knock back another strong one with Art and pull up a chair. We've got some war stories to tell and they aren't going to get told with you sitting at home! Button up your brains and haul out your tux, fellow babies! The WKRP-Cast is headed to "The Cricket" and we've got  reservations!

WELCOME BACK! Take cover!! It's the attack of the Godless Tornadoes! Hey, fellow babies...Allen and Donna Stare here! On this episode of the "WKRP-Cast" bells will be ringing...on Les' teletype machine!  A pack of killer tornadoes has descended on the Ohio Valley. Fearless Newsman Les Nessman is on it...or, at least he would be if he weren't stuck in an elevator. Oh, yeah...his teletype machine is also unplugged. It's a long story that gets really weird when the Japanese businessmen show up (they're our allies now, you know). Board up the windows and batten down the hatches, there's terror on the 14th floor!! The WKRP-Cast is on the air...grab your brains, fellow babies and get to low ground. It ain't over 'til the National Anthem gets played!!

WELCOME BACK!Hang on, fellow babies, we're SUPERSIZED!! It's Allen and Donna Stare! On this episode of the "WKRP-Cast", we tackle one of life's greatest mysteries: are there actually two endings to this episode? And, if there are, WHY???  Johnny blew it when he missed the decimal point on Andy's contest memo. The "big prize" was fifty bucks. Johnny read it as FIVE THOUSAND!! No sweat, we'll just make the contest impossible to win! KRP listeners are obviously musical savants. EVERYBODY is figuring out the impossible puzzle. When it comes time to award the cash, will Johnny Save the Day? Or, will Johnny Have to Pay? He actually winds up doing BOTH!! This is the weirdest, wildest, strangest little detour you'll take in WKRP-land, which is why we invited a very special detour guide: episode writer CASEY PIOTROWSKI joins us with comments and insight!! The WKRP-Cast is on the air...grab your brains, fellow babies and  strap in. The Bozo-puter might overheat before we're done with this one. You ARE seeing double!!

WELCOME BACK!Hey!! It's Allen and Donna Stare! It's time for another episode of the "WKRP-Cast"...and somebody went to see Mr. Macho! A lot is happening at the Mighty KRP, and the laughs are BACK, fellow babies!! Les has won the Coveted Silver Sow (we don't think "Coveted" is actually in the title...but the way he says it, it is!!). Herb decides to help his little buddy get a date. He doesn't know he's about to set off a chain of events that will end with wigs, memos, gold lame, and a quiet cup of cocoa with a beautiful woman. How could they fit it all in 25 minutes?? We sure couldn't!! (sorry if we got a little long...but there was so much STUFF!!)  The WKRP-Cast is on the air...grab your brains, fellow babies...if you can find them under all of that HAIR!!

WELCOME BACK!Hey!! It's Allen and Donna Stare! It's time for another episode of the "WKRP-Cast"...and we've been retooled! Well, we haven't, but the SHOW is supposed to have undergone a major overhaul. Did it? Not so much, thanks to the curmudgeonly behavior of our hero, Mr. Hugh Wilson. This is, oddly for first season, a clip show...with about 14 minutes of new stuff, PLUS an all new "Mama Carlson." We get into what it was like to watch TV back when dinosaurs roamed the earth, the mystery of the cold open, the insanity of network suits and the return of one of the funniest shows on TV...now comfortably seated right behind mega-hit "M*A*S*H"!! What could go wrong...right?? Well, it IS WKRP. Don't count on anything good to last for too long. The WKRP-Cast is on the air...grab your brains, fellow babies, Mama's here and she doesn't look happy. Is your resume up-to-date? Time to hit 'play' and hope she's in a good mood !!YOU KNOW YOU MAKE US WANNA...No shouts in the show, but we did want to take a minute to say a BIG 'Thank You' to Michael Hernandez, the Accountant of Rock. Mike is doing some amazing forensic research regarding the scheduling of WKRP throughout its original run on network. He is doing the digital equivalent of haunting newspaper graveyards and dusty stacks in library attics. His research is yielding some fascinating stuff and we are so glad he is willing to share the highlights with us. We hope to be hitting Mike up in the future regarding show ratings and scheduling. It's all part of what made and influenced the creation of WKRP so we love getting into it! WATCH ALONG DETAILS...[Want to watch along with us? It's a blast!!

WELCOME BACK!Hey!! It's Allen and Donna Stare! It's time for another episode of the "WKRP-Cast"...and...well. Okay, so this is bad. Really bad. If you don't know this episode, consider yourself lucky. If you DO know this episode, please keep reading. We know superfans who will NOT watch this one...but we're giving it a shot! After last week's AMAZING "Turkeys Away" episode, the fine folks at MTM...or CBS...or somebody said this should be the follow-up to one of the greatest half hours in television. This is very bad all on its own...but when you put it up against "Turkeys" it becomes monumentally bad in comparison. If you should happen to like this episode, we hope you have a sense of humor. If you REALLY like this episode...you'd probably better not listen. The other 99.897% of you are going to have a blast. Things get comedically bloody...claws come out...hair color is questioned...you'll have fun in spite of the horrific episode, we promise!! The WKRP-Cast is on the air...grab your brains, fellow babies, this one is about as bad as it can possibly get. Hold your nose and hit 'play' !![No shout-outs this time.

Hey!! It's Allen and Donna Stare! Welcome back to another episode of the "WKRP-Cast." Bailey is stepping up to the plate as a producer. Her idea, "Cincinnati Beat" is tapped by Andy to be the next big Public Service program on WKRP. The only problem...a show like this requires guests, and good ones. Cue the nutballs! Cincinnati's leading eccentrics have gathered in the WKRP lobby! Bailey's call for participants nets some of the most deliciously deraigned attendees imaginable.

Hey!! It's Allen and Donna Stare! Welcome back to another episode of the "WKRP-Cast." Be careful...you might not be ready for Hamilton Camp!! We're headed to Del's Stereo for "Hold Up". Herb sold a remote down at Del's Stereo and Sound. Johnny gets roped into doing talent for the gig (on a Saturday!). Del is such a ball of nervous energy he's just short of exploding. When a gunman walks in on the remote things get really weird. When he wants on the air, you know you could only be watching an episode of WKRP!!

Hey!! It's Allen and Donna Stare! Welcome back to another episode of the "WKRP-Cast." Huge episode this week!! It's time for some "Hoodlum Rock". Any new rock-n-roll station is only as good as the concerts it can land. WKRP has lucked into hosting one of the first concerts in the states from hot new band  "Scum of the Earth." Turns out Art's old buddy Stevie Peevy reps Scum in Cincinnati. We determine the origins of the term "Scum of the Earth". We discover a whole new genre of music where the band physically attacks the audience and, HOLY KRP!! WE HAVE AN INTERVIEW WITH MICHAEL DES BARRES WHO APPEARS IN THE EPISODE!!

Hey!! It's Allen and Donna Stare! Welcome back to another session of the "WKRP-Cast."  We're breaking down a new episode!! This week, it's "Les on a Ledge". After a misunderstanding at "the Stadium" Les is barred from post-game locker-room interviews. A player believes Les is homosexual. The news is so distressing it pushes Les onto the ledge of the Flimm building...or, at least SOME building (the Flimm building doesn't have ledges...but we can't let something like that get in the way of a good script!) Of course there's going to be a "Herb Tarlek Fashion Alert".  We meet America's first prime-time pothead (hint: you already know him). We have unidentified firemen, Shakespearean monologues and a fall from either the ninth or fourteenth floor of the Flimm building. This one is truly crazy, fellow babies!! The WKRP-Cast is on the air...grab your brains and tell the Doctor where it hurts!!Resources: Want to check out that issue of "Record World" we mention? We know your inner geek is screaming "yes! yes! a thousand times YES!!" Here's the link:https://worldradiohistory.com/Archive-Record-World/70s/78/Record-World-1978-08-26.pdfFor a super-meta-freak-out, turn to page 65 and read the continuation of the Article in the upper left-hand corner titled: "Networks Try Pop Music." That's right, friends and neighbors...an article about WKRP was sitting on the set of WKRP!![Want to watch along with us? It's a blast!! We highly recommend the 'Shout Factory' boxed DVD set of the entire WKRP series. For reasons you'll have to listen to in the "Prolog"  episode, all streaming versions of the original "WKRP in Cincinnati" have had the original music cues removed. Generic music beds and stings were used in place of the original music for the syndicated version of the series. 'Shout Factory' has been able to restore an estimated 85% of all WKRP music cues to the original "as-aired" content for their DVD release. They've also restored scenes that had been cut to shorten episodes for syndication. The original eps ran 25 minutes. The syndication eps were shortened to 22 minutes. Over 88 episodes that's more than four hours of lost content, including the performance by "Detective" at the end of "Hoodlum Rock." Get the COMPLETE series...get the Shout Factory DVDs. The Shout Factory complete series box has a release date of 2014. All individual seasons of Shout Factory disks were released starting in 2015.]
Hey!! It's Allen and Donna Stare! Welcome back to another episode of the "WKRP-Cast."  We've watched another episode of "WKRP in Cincinnati" to the extreme!! This week, we break down "Pilot Part 2". Andy has been at the station for two weeks. He wants to promote the change to Rock-n-Roll. Mr. Carlson won't give him the money. Disgruntled listeners stage a protest in the station. We meet great one-off characters this time like "Buzzy Milker", "Mrs. Burstyn" and "Wayne R. Coe." Of course there's a "Herb Tarlek Fashion Alert" and we've got a new feature: "The Committee Connection."  We also indulge a little "no more mama" conspiracy theory regarding a very weird scene in this episode (you can help solve the mystery!). And...where were they playing bingo again? (we're still not sure...) Fellow babies, the WKRP-Cast is on the air...grab your brains and don't miss it!![Want to watch along with us? It's a blast!!

Hey!! It's Allen and Donna Stare! Welcome back fellow babies to another episode of the "WKRP-Cast."  We've watched the Pilot (Part ONE) of "WKRP in Cincinnati." We've picked it apart to the extreme and we're ready to talk about it!!  We meet, for the first time ever, the staff and ownership of Cincinnati radio station WKRP. The "Big Guy" (Art Carlson, station...owner?) has hired hotshot new program director Andy Travis, most recently from Santa Fe. Andy is our way in as we meet the wacky staff of the station. We are introduced to the iconic characters that make up the WKRP crew: Arthur, Herb, Les, Jennifer, Bailey, Venus and over-the-hill (?) morning man Dr. Johnny Fever. Learn the real story behind why Les is always bandaged as part of our first regular feature: "The Les Nessman Bandage Report." We expose...or, actually, cover-up...'Nipplegate.' We answer burning questions, like how exactly DO you change a radio station format? (Not like this!!) And what happens when the station is managed remotely by the GM's mother? Plus, we introduce the "Herb Tarlek Fashion Alert" and we get a TWO-FER right out of the box!! Get on board, fellow babies!! The WKRP-Cast is happening and there's nothing you can do about it!! Grab your brains and don't miss out!![Want to watch along with us? It's a blast!! We highly recommend the 'Shout Factory' boxed DVD set of the entire WKRP series.

Hi!! Our names are Allen and Donna Stare! We are a married couple from the Midwest who have been fans of the television show "WKRP in Cincinnati" since it originally aired. Allen started a career in radio and advertising at age 15 and much of his interest was inspired by WKRP. While Allen comes at the show more from the radio side of things, Donna is a fan of the humanity and the characters that populate the world of WKRP. We are both lovers of trivia, music and history so we decided to pull all of these interests together and start a re-watch podcast. We'll be watching a new episode each week, in broadcast order, with trivia, background insights and opinions. This week, we're setting the table with some general background on the creation of the show, we meet the man whose "baby" it truly was: Mr. Hugh Wilson, we talk about all the problems with the music over the years (it's an epic tale!!) AND we meet the eight regular players who will be a part of WKRP for four years. We felt like it was important to cover these big topics now, so we can hit the ground running with the Pilot-Part1. We hope you join us! Watch along if you can, but even if you don't get a chance to watch the show, each episode of the podcast is full of laughs and a lot of interesting stuff. Hop in the Wayback Machine to the late 1970s. Fellow babies, the WKRP-Cast is on the air...grab your brains and don't miss it!! (This is gonna be a blast!!)[Want to watch along with us? Sure you do!!

Hey, fellow babies!! Our names are Allen and Donna Stare and we're starting a podcast! Allen has been in radio and advertising for forty years...and Donna married him (it's not her fault, she didn't know where this could lead). We're both huge fans of "WKRP in Cincinnati"...so big, in fact, we decided we just had to chat about it with the whole world! (or at least the percentage of the world that enjoys hilarious sitcoms about 20th Century modes of audio reproduction and distribution). Check the trailer...and SPREAD THE WORD!!
