The classic episode of WKRP in Cincinnati where a Thanksgiving promotion goes insanely awry. Just listening to Les Nessman’s vivid description is so funny (especially if you’ve ever worked in radio):
‘Turkeys are falling from the sky like sacks of wet cement,….. Oh the Humanity…. Not since the Hindenberg tragedy has there been anything like this’
‘As God as my witness, I thought turkeys could fly.’ Mr. Carlson, GM
‘Less… We now work for a Rock & Roll station, which means these casually dressed people seem to think they’ve taken over the place’ Mr. Carlson
So many other great lines too. Interesting observation that’s probably a coincidence, without the commercials, the live report starts at exactly 17:00 in the video. In real time it’s top of the hour, when traditional radio cuts to national or local newsbreak. You usually hear a ‘cuetone’ that indicates it is exactly top of the hour.
And for Thanksgiving, 92ZEW is giving you a chance to win a $500 giftcard to Goldstein’s Fine Jewelers, along with other great prizes, including a cajun fried turkey from Creative Catering. Click Here for Details.
