This is a montage that I put together as one of the various videos for the opening of a management meetings at my company. The managers were coming to Cincinnati from all over the globe and we wanted short films that related to the city and our daily themes.

Portions of this video (and others) were used to create the "Welcome to Cincinnati" video used to open the week of meetings.

From Wikipedia:
WKRP had two musical themes, one opening and the other closing the show. The opening theme, called "WKRP In Cincinnati Main Theme", was composed by Tom Wells, with lyrics by series creator Hugh Wilson, and performed by Steve Carlisle. An urban legend had circulated at the time that Richard Sanders (who had comparable vocal characteristics to Carlisle) had actually recorded the song. Wilson stated in the commentary for the first season's DVD set that this was simply not true.

A full-length version of the original theme song was released in 1979 on a 45 rpm vinyl single on the MCA Records label. It peaked at 65 on the Pop Singles chart in 1981 and at 29 on the Adult Contemporary chart in 1982. The lyrics refer to the life of character Andy Travis.
