A podcast about WKRP in Cincinnati? Really?
Yes, really! WKRP in Cincinnati was one of the great American sitcoms, underappreciated in its own time but kept alive in syndication and deeply loved by the kids and teenagers who grew up with it in the 1970s and 80s. The recent release of the entire series on DVD, cleaned up and carefully restored with virtually all the original music intact, inspired my friend Mike Grasso and I to create Hold My Order, Terrible Dresser: The Deep-Dive, History-Nerd WKRP in Cincinnati podcast.
In each episode, Mike and I discuss two episodes of WKRP in Cincinnati, returning to our childhoods to see what holds up, what’s aged poorly, and what’s changed since the days of Linda Ronstadt and the KISS Army. You can watch along with us, but you don’t need to watch to enjoy the podcast. You don’t even need to have ever seen the show! Each episode is really just a jumping-off point for a wide-ranging discussion of history, politics, and pop culture.
You can find every episode of Hold My Order, Terrible Dresser at our charmingly low-tech website. Better yet, subscribe using iTunes, Stitcher, or RSS. We’re on Twitter at @HoldMyOrderWKRP and on Facebook at Hold My Order.
