The best WKRP had to be when the bible thumping contigent threatened to boycott the station if they played John Lennon's, Imagine.
Mr Carlson: I had one of my disc jockeys, Dr Johnny Fever, give me the lyrics to a song. He wants to know if you'd let him play that song on the air.
Dr Bob, reading: "Imagine there's no heaven, it's easy if you try. No hell below us, above us only sky. Nothing to kill or die for, and no religion too. Imagine no possessions? Imagine all the peple sharing all the world?" That sounds like communism to me, if there's no heaven, no religion and, I assume, no God.
Mr Carlson: There's not an obscene word in here.
Dr Bob: Not the way I see it.
Mr Carlson: Does it go on your list?
Dr Bob: Arthur, this is typical of the kind of secular, liberal humanist point of view that gluts our airwaves.
Mr Carlson: Yeah, but we're not talking obscenities here anymore, Bob, we're talking about ideas - political, philosophical ideas! First you censor a word, and then you censor the ideas.
Dr Bob: The idea is man-centered, not God-centered. Man is an animal. The Bible tells us to put our reliance in God, not in our fellow mortals. Arthur, this song says there's no heaven.
Mr Carlson: Ah. No it doesn't, it just says imagine there's no heaven.
Dr Bob: That's blasphemy.
Mr Carlson: On the list or not?
Dr Bob: I have no choice but to say on.
Mr Carlson: That decision was made by one man.
That episode rocked. And of course when Jonny first gets hired on after being fired by the former radio station for saying booger, and he yells into the mike, "And oh yeah, one more thing babies...BOOGER!"
Also let's not forget that Jan Smithers had to be the hottest woman in TV! My top 3 was always, Jan Smithers, Victoria Principal, and Marilu Henner.
