WKRP in Cincinnati (1978)

Howard Hesseman as "Johnny Caravella"

When a Cincinnati radio station switches from sedate music to top-40 rock 'n' roll, its staff of oddball characters has to switch gears quickly. New program director Andy Travis brings in a DJ named Venus Flytrap to work with the station's burned-out veteran, Dr. Johnny Fever. Neurotic newsman Les Nessman, eager beaver Bailey Quarters, sleazy salesman Herb Tarlek, blond bombshell Jennifer Marlowe -- who serves as the station's ultracapable receptionist -- and station manager Arthur Carlson, whose domineering mother owns WKRP, round out the eccentric bunch.
