It’s become as much a part of Thanksgiving as A Christmas Story or the Home Alone series is a part of Christmas…

The great WKRP Turkey Drop was inspired by an ACTUAL radio promotion. Except in real life, the birds were tossed out of the back of a pickup truck.

I’ll say it for you: No One Would Try This Today.

Neither the stunt itself, nor a TV show about it, would get very far in 2016 in my opinion.

But as a memory from the past, it’s as classic as classic TV gets.

Especially on Thanksgiving.

If you have a few minutes, take a look at the story behind “Turkeys Away”, the making of the episode itself, and the inspiration behind WKRP In Cincinnati!
