MTM Productions' license to use some of the songs for this show expired in the mid-1990s. Syndicated and home video versions since then, including that on the Nick-at-Nite cable network, have replaced some of those songs with stock music. See more »
I remember during its second season a real life event happened in Cincinatti where 11 people were killed at Riverfront Stadium during a Who concert. Wkrp I thought handled this extremely well on one of their shows. I thought they handled this very well like the class act they were. One of their more memorable serious shows. The boss had come in the nest day and hadn't heard what had happened.

It led to several changes of how concerts were promoted and also pretty much the end of general admission first come first serve seating
