WKRP in Cincinnati

Show Tidbits
Harry Chapin's song "WOLD," about a wandering DJ, was the insperation behind the creation of WKRP.
The shy, soft-spoken yet articulate character of Bailey Quarters was based on the real life wife of creator HughWilson.
The entire show was filmed at CBS Studio City in the San Fernando Valley except for the pilot which was shot at CBS Television City in Los Angeles.
The show was filmed at same sound stage as "The Mary Tyler Moore."
The bumper stickers for other radio stations plastered on the walls of the studio were sent in by real DJ's that were fans of the show.
Syndicated versions of the episodes had the original soundtracks of songs removed and replaced by generic music, along with dubbed voices talking over the songs using changed dialog to remove any copyright infringements.
William Daniels, originally cast to play Dr. Bob Halyers in "Clean Up Radio Everywhere" was replaced by Richard Paul for his resemblance to Rev. Jerry Falwell, a part he would later play again in the feature film "The People vs. Larry Flynt."
