It’s not the most important issue in the world, but the fact is, the historical record has been altered, and not for the better, by the distributor of a minor comedy from the early 80s.
Yes, it seems that WKRP, well known for playing a wide variety of popular music, has been completely eviscerated! Currently syndicated versions have been edited and virtually all of the original music has been replaced with generic instrumental music from a music library, or by sound-alike “fake” songs.
Though undeniably a travesty, the whole story behind these edits is not as simple as one might guess. The site also has a detailed list changes that were made to specific episodes of the show.
