Joe Fisher was the weatherman for Channel 12 for a number of years, and he also had his own morning talk show.
There’s IJF at right with Denny Janson (L) and Nick Clooney. Yes, George’s dad.
As COB says on the YouTube clip into, this was “Channel 5’s attempt to cash in on the mid-80s MTV craze with a whopping 30-minute (!) video show. ” I wonder if Channel 12 tried to block this.
55KRC and Q were in the same space on the 1st floor until the winter of 1980-1981 or so when we moved upstairs. Alan Browning did this show every Friday night, and it made for great radio. I remember this studio very well- and one of those studio digital clocks is on my desk right now. One night, someone (Phillips I think) exploded some fireworks in the men’s room, blowing the urinal off the wall as I recall. The smell of raw sewage permeated the first floor during Alan’s show. Never saw that on WKRP, I bet.
h/t to COB for this one.
