WKRP Secret Revealed
Each Thanksgiving since 1989 and earlier, we all sit down to a viewing of the WKRP sitcom where the turkeys bomb the parking mall. We love it.
Back to the early 1980s...I used to be in radio and I had a bet with a college chum of mine that I could figure out the lyrics to the trailing theme music before he could. It was $20. Find out today that those elusive lyrics are not lyrics at all, but just gibberish as they sound.
The trivia page says that the lyrics were just gibberish thrown together by the studio musicians who were trying to compose a theme song for the end of the show. They had the music, but just wanted to run that by the bosses. The result - they kept the gibberish and we have the out theme today.
Mystery solved. I called my friend who lives in Iowa and reminded him of the bet (he had forgotten) and told him the bet was off. He laughed.
