    Her retirement doesn't seem to have deterred her fans one bit! Have you seen the self-professed drooling fan page? jan smithers drooling fan page. There seems not to be anything newer than 2001 on the site, and it's not "news" per se, just someone's recollections of going to high school with Smither.

    Answers.com says "Although she had been living in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada and had retired from show business, she is now living in Ojai, California and is reported to be considering a return to acting."

    Richard Sanders most recently played the Cemetary Director in the 2006 movie, "Expiration Date", and appeared in the 10 minute short "The Delivery". He continues to pop up about once or twice a year with a bit part. Without a doubt though he will always be known as Les Nessman, buckeye news hawk, and winner of the coveted silver sow award!

    Carol Bruce after a long career (born 1919) has retired. She of course was Momma Carlson in the series run, 10 appearances. The highlight of her rather lengthy career undoubtedly was singing at the White House to President Franklin D Roosevelt in 1942 during his Birthday Ball.

    and finally, no "Where are they now" of WKRP would be complete without reference to Fred Stuthman. Now I know someone out there has to remember Fred, I know I do. He was my all-time favorite 1 appearance guest. The entire episode was directed around him, of couorse Fred was none other than Mr Randall Ferryman, from teh episode commercial break. I will probably never forget him doing his chair dance as they sung the funeral dity song for Ferrymans.

    Ferryman jingle:
    "Hey, you're young and swingin',
    No time to think about tomorrow
    But there ain't no way to deny it
    Some day, you're gonna buy it.
    Plan today,
    Go for a Ferryman
    Tomorrow!
    Ferryman, Ferryman,
    he's the man with the plot, the man with the plan!
    Ferryman, Ferryman,
    He's the mortician man who loves you!
    A lot!"

    Unfortunately Fred passed away in 1982 at the ripe old age of 63.

    As this is Thanksgiving, let's give due credit to the most famous WKRP line in the series and one of the top lines in television history. "As God is my witness, I thought turkeys could fly!
