The Non-Conformist Cult Radio Show 3/26/04 #1

A couple of months ago, I got the exciting news about one of my favorite TV shows that was finally being released on DVD…. WKRP In Cincinnati.

Check it out!

The initial release date was April 3, but for some reason it was pushed back to April 24. When I got the news of ’KRP’s release… I fell to the ground, spoke in tongues, and lifted up praise to the Almighty. The dreary day suddenly changed. The sun broke through the clouds like the well-endowed Ron Jeremy breaking through a pristine hymen. It was glorious news!

I discovered last night that our Creative Services Director Joe Davis, had already purchased it. I showed him the link where the reviewer gives up all the dirt on things that will kill most of the ‘KRP purists. Thanks to Jeff Kay at The West Virginia Surf Report for bringing this to my attention.

I don’t like the fact that the majority of the music has been changed. I don’t like the fact that scenes have been cut. I don’t like the fact that I won’t be able to resist purchasing WKRP In Cincinnati on DVD.

WKRP In Cincinnati was one of the all-time classics. And for those of us in radio… It’s not completely accurate, but sometimes it will hit the bull’s eye. And when it comes to shows presenting their take on Thanksgiving… WKRP’s is the BEST!

You’ve heard about which female castaway from Gilligan’s Island that you’d prefer to be with… Ginger or Mary Ann?

The same thing can be attached to WKRP.

Jennifer Marlowe?

Or Bailey Quarters?

Give me your answer by posting a comment. I’m a Mary Ann kind of guy and I will forever be all about Bailey Quarters. For me, Bailey (Jan Smithers) is one of the hottest ladies to ever walk across a television screen.

Now my Netflix habit…

I finished Wonderfalls. While watching discs 1 and 2 of this series, I was constantly going back and forth with rating it with 4 or 5 stars. Once I saw the first episode on disc 3, my rating had been established with all 5 stars.

That episode had everything… Macaws, romance, sex, flashlights, elephant dung, awesome humor, and lipstick-lesbians. The one episode made me laugh my ass off and my eyes tear up. Where can you get this kind of great entertainment?

I’m buying it! Check out the description.

Once I finished the series on DVD, I called Christine to tell her about it and to beg her to watch it… I believe her exact words were something like this… “Who do you think told you about it, dumb ass?”

Only the first four episodes aired on television… Those weren’t even the best ones!

I don’t know if they kept filming the series after the cancellation, but it ties up nice and neat at the end. As a failed series with only 13 episodes, its surprisingly complete and deliciously satisfying. I cannot recommend it enough. I’m thinking about ordering it from Amazon along with my WKRP.

Wonderfalls gets my Official Seal of Approval!

    And on Gilligan's Island? Mrs. Thurston Howell III, aka Lovie.

  2. Are you serious about Lovie?

    For some reason, she looked pretty damn good as one of the Honeybees!

    Of course, that could be the propane talking.

    Mrs. Howell was a nympho who didn't know the meaning of the word enough. Mrs. Howell, Lovie, loved to howl.

    Ahem. Ladies read this blog too, you know. Loni Anderson = skank. 'Nuf said.

    Andy Travis (Gary Sandy) was my favorite. My, he looked mighty good in those tight jeans. Johnny Fever was probably more my type though -- gotta love those stoner dudes. I saw Gary Sandy in The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas a couple of years ago in Greensboro. I'd still do him.

    As for Gilligan's Island: it's gotta be the Professor.

    The Professor is no-brainer given the other choices.

    Gilligan always "did it" for me, something about those "geek" types that were a turn on.

  7. I'd have to pick Baily b/c my father had a Lonnie Anderson poster on the back of his office door. I thought this was so embarrassing. I also thought Andy Travis was cute.

  8. THANK YOU, Joan!

    I will say no more.
