WKRP in Cincinnati (1978 - 1982)
September 18, 1978 - September 20, 1982
New programming director Andy Travis tries to turn around struggling radio station WKRP, despite the well-meaning efforts of the mostly-incompetent staff: bumbling station manager Arthur Carlson, oily sales manager Herb Tarlek, and clueless news director Les Nessman. Rounding out the cast are super receptionist Jennifer Marlowe, enthusiastic junior employee Bailey Quarters, and spaced-out veteran disc jockey Johnny Caravella ("Dr. Johnny Fever"). To help bolster ratings, Travis hires a new disc jockey, "Venus Flytrap". Lurking in the background and making an occasional appearance is the station's owner, (and Carlson's mother), ruthless business tycoon Mrs. Carlson.
