Like just about any TV series that made heavy use of original music during its run, 'WKRP in Cincinnati' has faced a thorny thicket of licensing problems in the home video era, and for the show's previous rights holders, it was simply too expensive to put those episodes on DVD with their soundtrack intact. That all changes, however, with the Oct. 28 release of 'WKRP in Cincinnati: The Complete Series.'

Presented for the first time in all its musical glory, the 1978-82 sitcom about the lovable gang of misfits at a struggling radio station is receiving the deluxe box treatment courtesy of Shout! Factory, where staff have worked diligently behind the scenes to secure the rights for a long, long list of classic cuts. Although they weren't successful in every instance -- as the company admits on the box's product page, "in a few cases, it was simply impossible" -- they really did come pretty close, as you can see simply by taking a look at the impressive roll call of featured artists presented below.

Currently available for pre-order through the Shout! website for $119.99, 'WKRP in Cincinnati: The Complete Series' collects the show's 90-episode run on 13 discs, as well as a small assortment of bonus material that includes footage from the cast reunion staged at the Paley Center in Los Angeles on June 2, 2014.
