    WKRP in Cincinnati has had a complicated history of music rights restrictions. To make this the most comprehensive DVD release possible, we are doing our best to include every scene uncut and to license as much original music as possible.
    We’re Spinnin’ The Hits And Bringin’ The Laughter!
    Pairing an impeccable ensemble cast with hilarious wit and popular tunes, WKRP In Cincinnati celebrated four amazing seasons, making it the quintessential situation comedy for any music lover! Join everyone's favorite radio DJs—the rockin' Dr. Johnny Fever (Howard Hesseman) and the soulful Venus Flytrap (Tim Reid)—as they weave through the inner-office antics of the crazy WKRP staff; including the station's program director Andy (Gary Sandy), indecisive manager Arthur (Gordon Jump), advertising executive Herb (Frank Bonner), quirky news man Les Nessman (Richard Sanders), young ingénue Bailey (Jan Smithers) and, of course, the station's lovely receptionist, Jennifer (Loni Anderson). So sit back and enjoy the sound of uproarious laughter as you watch every episode of this iconic series!

    This gives them an awful lot of wiggle room. I'm waiting for reviews before I buy it.

    Sorry to resurrect this old thread, but I just got the WKRP set from Amazon, and I'm amazed to find that the discs are single layer. I'm wondering if I got a bootleg set. The first disc has 8 episodes, which makes it almost 4 hours long, so I can't believe this is a legitimate set. It was a third party seller, fulfilled by Amazon, so it's possible it's a bootleg. Can anyone verify if the discs are dual layer?

    My S1 Disc 1 has eight episodes, but is a Dual-Layer (8.3 gig)

    the numbers printed around the disc-hole are DVDL 6258300A1 and DVDL 6258300B1. Not sure if the numbers are significant or not.

    The numbers on mine are the same, but they're definitely single layer. A close look at the printing is also suspicious. Double images in the text and the look of being scanned and printed. Looks like it's going back.

    I tend to avoid them too. When I do buy from them, I make sure it's fulfilled by Amazon so I can return it without any hassle. I see a bunch of these on eBay for around $40. No doubt they're all bootlegs.
