Synopsis by Hal Erickson

Announcing a contest held by WKRP during his deejay shift, Johnny (Howard Hesseman) makes a potentially disastrous slip of the tongue, declaring that the 50-dollar grand prize is $5000--which, as Andy (Gary Sandy) ruefully points out, is the station's contest budget for the entire year. Hoping to save the day, Venus (Gary Reid) conjures up a contest that will be impossible for anyone to win; alas, he soon finds out that in this day and age, nothing is impossible. Featured in the supporting cast are two of Hollywood's best--and most eccentric--character actors, Vincent Schiavelli and Tracey Walter.
