WKRP in Cincinnati redacted to save on license fees

Zed sez, "WKRP in Cincinnati (which was shot on video instead of film because RIAA's ASCAP's licensing fees were more favorable for programs on video) has, in syndication, had all the original music replaced with generic music because the RIAA's ASCAP's license fees to keep the music were outrageous. Other shows in which music plays an important role never see syndication for that reason. So instead of getting some money, they succeed in getting no money."


(Thanks, Zed!)
