A much anticipated DVD set
Well I got my first season of WKRP in Cincinnati DVD set last night, complete with musical substitutions. And as a fan of the series when it first come on in 1978, I like the fact that the show is available. I am disappointed in the fact that when the bogus songs come on, it takes away from the line just said by the character.
However, as stated elsewhere(OMW), to get what we all wanted would have been cost prohibitive, probably boosting the price of the collection to over one hundred dollars, instead of the $29.95 we paid for it at Wal*Mart.
I think if we would have waited until the music became public domain, some of us wouldn't live long enough to see the release. But having one of the great ensemble series on DVD is somewhat a consolation even without the music. Who knows how much longer the series would have lasted if CBS hadn't jerked it around the schedule so much.
