30 Day Song Challenge - Day 13

Day 13 - A song that is a guilty pleasure.

Theme Song - WKRP In Cincinatti

Is there anything more indulgent, musically, than a favorite television theme song?  The memories, oh the memories.  I have quite the collection I keep with me, always.  Just the other day I was belting out "I'm a Pepper" in my car, and yes, it was playing on the trusty iPod. 

I liked WKRP In Cincinnati, the show.But I loved the song.  Yes, there was in fact a full version, radio ready.  Not only is it evocative of my own days in broadcasting, a time that was like no other for me, but it is the perfect ballad of the lonely, traveling disc jockey - "Town to town, up and down the dial."

So when I sing along to this one, when the first lonesome guitar sounds, it's an homage to everyone who ever entertained us in between the songs, who ever felt our pain and celebrated our moments. 

Thank you, Tom Wilson, Susan Leigh Taylor, Dr. Donald D. Rose, Roger Collins.  Thank you Pat Finn, Anthony Patterson, Jim Dingler, Karla Knight, Katie O'Shea.  Thank you, Saul Vigil.  Thanks for the memories.
