When I composed about the total hill street Blues DVD set that came out at the end of last month, I mentioned that I truly really hoped that Shout! factory would do a similar set for WKRP in Cincinnati.

It appears that fans have been requesting Shout! do this for over a decade now, too. sometimes patience is rewarded.
