17 rocking behind-the-scenes photos from 'WKRP in Cincinnati'
Baby, if you've ever wondered, wondered whatever became of me…
With a wonderful cast and a crate of awesome records, WKRP in Cincinnati is the most rocking sitcom of all time. People tuned in to both see blonde bombshell Loni Anderson and perhaps catch a bit of the latest Blondie single.
Considering it was set in a raucous radio station, WKRP in Cincinnati was a blast for the actors. No wonder so many of them reunited for The New WKRP in Cincinnati in the early '90s.
Today, we're sticking with the classic. Let's take a peek behind the scenes of the side-splitting sitcom.
Play misty for me
Loni Anderson tends to the plants. She even matches the filing cabinets.
Howard Hesseman, Gary Sandy, Tim Reid and Gordon Jump goof around in the DJ booth set. Notice how you can see the studio lights above the walls.
A Quarters for your thoughts
Jan Smithers played Bailey Quarters to perfection.
Jump senses something fishy is going on with the "KRP Carp" costume from "Fish Story."
It takes a Village
Anderson poses with the Village People. She appeared on an episode of The Love Boat with the disco band.
The whole gang gathers around Jennifer Marlow's desk.
Put me in, coach
Anderson is ready to play ball for "Baseball."
Les is more
Richard Sanders (Les Nessman) points to a truly big Big Guy.
Arnold and Anderson
Anderson and Schwarzenegger hit the town. The two starred together in a 1980 made-for-TV movie, The Jayne Mansfield Story, and a Diet 7UP commercial.
Smithers shows her serious side.
Scum of the Earth
Michael Des Barres, center, the real-life rock singer who performed at Live Aid, fronted the fictional band Scum of the Earth in "Hoodlum Rock."
Anderson was a pin-up icon of the era to rival Farrah Fawcett.
Hesseman played one colorful character.
Sandy takes notes.
Plaid to meet you
Frank Bonner shows off Herb Tarlek's one-of-a-kind style. The plaid even matches his Arkansas Razorbacks mug.
I like Herb's plaid suit.
My favorite WKRP episode is the one where Les wants a helicopter, and goes flying with Buddy. Hilarious!
