Andy has arranged for Quentin Stone of Cincinnati Magazine to conduct an in-depth interview with him and Mr. Carlson on how the station has fared since the format change. Andy believes it will be a good day for Mr. Stone to come in and see all the positive changes as much is happening at the station today. Johnny and Venus, under the supervision of Highway Patrolman R.F. Buddy Plyler, are the human guinea pigs in an on-air public service announcement on the negative effects of drinking on reaction and thus the hazards of drinking and driving. And the station lobby is being repainted which should make it attractive for anyone arriving at the station. In addition to these two items, Andy learns that today Mr. Carlson is also introducing WKRP's new mascot - a carp (KRP) - which in this instance is Herb dressed up in a fish outfit. Herb, with Les and Bailey in tow, are to head to the university for a pep rally where rival WPIG's mascot - a pig - will also be in attendance. With all this ...Written by
Creator Hugh Wilson wrote this episode in response to CBS's demands that he make the show more farcical and kid-friendly. It was the last episode of the initial 13-episode order, and Wilson was so embarrassed by the finished episode that he used a pseudonym for the writing credit. See more »

[Without saying the real reason, Andy is trying to justify to reporter, Quentin Stone, why Herb, Les and Bailey have been arrested]
Why is your news director in jail?
Ah-huh! Fair question. Ah, perhaps he withheld a source.

No. No it wouldn't. *But*... what if the sales manager went down to the jail trying only to bail out the news director. That's a possibility, isn't it.
Sure it is!

One of the hardest hit in the 90's redistribution package and 2007 DVD release. All songs replaced and all announcements redubbed (so "That was The Doors" becomes "That was The Swords") or cut out entirely. The 2007 DVD also cut some footage of Venus singing. All the original songs and Venus singing are now on the 2014 DVD. See more »
In the radio booth it shows Venus's jacket a Cincinnati Reds jacket, but Cincinnati is spelled "Cincinnato", Why? I think this is a very funny show. 2 of the 3 story lines are very funny, the interview part is poor. I have watched it many times, and never noticed until tonight. I would like to know why the Name was spelled wrong. The Pig fight is also funny. I think it was funny that when Mr Carlson needed bail money, he did not have any, and Jennifer had it to give to him. I think the fish suit is cool, much better than the Pig suit. Wkrp is the funniest show from it's time, clean, funny, and silly. The networks should make shows like this now. It would make people relax.
