Early last month we reported
that Shout! Factory was hard at work to release WKRP in Cincinnati - The Complete Series
on DVD. The studio is still working on this item, and at this time we don't yet have a release date (or timeframe), any box art or list of extras, and we certainly don't yet have concrete word for you about how much of the original music will be included on the set.
We know that Shout! wants to include as much of the music as possible, but we're waiting on a statement from them about exactly what that will look - or sound? - like! However, we know they can't release a statement on it until they're done getting all the clearances, so we're patiently waiting for them to complete those efforts...and we hope you're being patient as well.
In the meantime, we DO have something new for you about this title! It seems that Amazon.com has begun accepting pre-orders
for the item, and currently shows a nicely affordable $97.99 discounted price at the time of this writing, marked down from a $139.99 SRP list price. You can lock in your copy right away using that link just above. Again, there's no street date showing there; Amazon merely says that "This title has not yet been released. You may pre-order it now and we will deliver it to you when it arrives.
" Our thanks to reader Mike Kenny for pointing out the listing for us. Stay tuned for updates, as further developments occur!
