Looks like we’re doing TV themes this week. I’m not complaining; some TV themes are minor masterpieces. Case in point: the theme for the TV series WKRP In Cincinnati, which ran for four years (1978-1982) on CBS in the US. Allegedly, the show was based on producer Hugh Wilson’s experiences as the station manager at WQXI in Atlanta. The song was written by Tom Wells with lyrics by Wilson and sung by Steve Carlisle, though it was rumored that Richard Sanders, who played newsman Les Nessman on the show, had actually sung it. It was released as a single in 1979 and reached #65 on the Hot 100 in 1981, and at #29 on the Adult Contemporary chart in 1982.
