Day in the life of a small record label
27 September 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

A bright and refreshing comedy. First network then syndicated. It took a look at the day to day of a small record label in a big world. The show was a starring vehicle for Diana Canova. She had previously come to public attention on "SOAP". Her character was a divorced mother with no experience in the music world who gets a job at a small record label and runs with it. Comparisons can always be made to "WKRP In Cincinnati" or any "That Girl" clone, but it still had a freshness of its' own. Well acted and with great sound. The theme was performed by The Nylons and Diana Canova. It always entertained and will be missed. Reruns anyone ???
