Links To WKRP Episodes Posted So Far



I thought I should do a post collecting links to the various uncut, original-music WKRP in Cincinnati episodes that have been exhumed on this blog. Here they are in order of production (not the same as airing order); further episodes added on the blog will be added to the list. A few of these clips have been tweaked since they were first posted to include bits of music that weren't available at the time; "God Talks To Johnny" now includes the scene that was cut in syndicated versions.

If there are any episodes where the embedded clips don't work, let me know. (And again, if you have a copy of the season 3 episode "The Baby" that is a complete original 24-minute version, please let me know. That's the one episode I don't have complete.)

I sent you an e-mail before I found this master list and realized you were uploading these yourself. I had thought you were just posting links to a site that had the episodes.

Thank you SO MUCH for editing as needed and uploading these episodes. I've been looking for something like this for years.

Any chance you would consider changing the permission settings on the uploads so we can download these?

Hi!
Love the videos. Keep 'em coming!
I hope you can post "Les on a Ledge" someday!

THANKS!! The original music makes a HUGE difference!!
The only episodes that I can find that are missing, are sadly, all from the most brilliant first season, and they are:
"Les On A Ledge" (episode #3)
"Love Returns" (episode #8)
"Mama's Review" (episode #9).
I truly hope that someday those can be found, and the posting of the original work, at last will be completed.

What is remarkable about this collection most especially for those of us who had seen the original series in the 70s is that there is an episode or two of WKRP that stayed in our hearts and memories for all these years, together with the music that came with it. And then seeing it here again with the original music is such a wonderful legendary feeling, all the happiness, tears and laughter that this show gave us back then came alive again. WKRP is an extraordinary show, it is no wonder that this show became a "cult" series. Thank you for your posts, it means a lot to us!

Storylines giving us insight into both the past and present life of all of the characters of WKRP were featured except that of Bailey Quarters. (Jennifer’s old bf from home, Johnny’s daughter and ex-wife, Andy’s sister, Herb’s father, Mr. Carlson’s son, wife,, Les’ dad and one with a visit from his “mother,” and even Venus had a whole storyline regarding his past life as Gordon Sims). All we ever knew of Bailey Quarters was 1) she went to college, 2) had family in Chicago, and 3) she dated losers (manic-depressant, divinity student who drinks), 4) and of course her quasi relationship with Johnny. However, she never had a visitor from her past or a mention of a boyfriend , and only once did we get a glimpse of her apartment when Johnny needed a place to stay for a few days. True the writers knew Loni Anderson was the female star, but I feel of all the characters on the show Bailey’s seemed to have held up the best in the test of time as an educated, independent career woman. I wish we could have known more about her.
