Episode Recap

A disc jockey at the W.O.W. radio station does a segment and wants more money from his boss, Norman. Richie has a broom in his hand at the station and works there. The disc jockey quits, and Richie is forced to go on the air. Richie gets Charlie's (Charlie the Prince) job and still earns $25 a week from Mr. Bander. Richie comes in late for dinner at the house and tells everyone about his new job. Everyone at Arnold's is impressed with Richie and his job on the air. Richie "the C" is offered the top-disc-jockey position at W.O.W. Ralph and Potsie tell Richie that he is very average and that he needs to change his image. Richie can't go to the state fair because he has to do a promotional appearance at a supermarket opening. Richie tells Howard that he may not go to college anymore due to his new "career." Mr. Bander says they need to do a remote to compete with another radio station, W.E.E. Mr. Bander, Marsha, and Richie negotiate at a table at Arnold's. Richie brushes off the guys, and they decide to give him the business by ignoring him at the live remote. Potsie, Ralph, and Fonzie ignore Richie when he asks for dedications on the air, and nobody applauds or cheers. Howard, Marion, and Joanie say that Richie is bombing out during his live performance. Believing that Richie has learned his lesson, Fonzie makes a dedication to several girls, and everyone starts to dance.
