The Love Man says, "Change the station."
24 August 2003 | by Victor FieldSee all my reviews

There are, mercifully, very few things I remember about this shortlived sitcom set in a radio station, based around the "hilarious" premise of a black radio station hiring a white DJ.

1. The opening scene with the main character doing a different unamusing impersonation each week.

2. Troy Curvey Jr. as the show's answer to Venus Flytrap (just as any series set in a hotel will draw comparisons to "Fawlty Towers" - in the UK anyway; one magazine here actually insisted "Newhart" was a ripoff of Cleese's show, even though the two don't really have that much in common - so you can't talk about a show set in radio and not bring up "WKRP In Cincinnati"), who always referred to himself in the third person ("The Love Man says...").

3. An episode with the station owner (Anna Maria Horsford post-"Amen") thinking that a song called "I Can't Leave Her Behind" is a romantic record, finding out that it's a saucier number in which the singer follows a woman with a beautiful rump all over the room, and getting into a controversy over whether or not to play it.

4. The company credits - Mixed Emotions Inc in association with Twentieth Century Fox Television. The logo for the former was a face that went from :( to :) - too bad the overall series left a :( impression.
