** The show itself was also considered a SpiritualSuccessor to MTM's ''TheMaryTylerMooreShow''; Grant Tinker called it "a radio station cousin to Mary's show," and critic Tom Shales called Gary Sandy "Gary Tyler Moore". The Magazine/{{MAD}} parody ''WKRAP in Cincinati'' even ends with Mama Carlson firing all the station employees (including her son) and replacing them with the recently fired WJM staff.

** The DJ in "Johnny Comes Back" is taking payola to support his cocaine habit. Played with in the same episode, when to avoid complications Andy tells Carlson the packet of white stuff is 'foot powder'. The Big Guy promptly tries it out... cue hilariously panicked stomping when he finds out the truth.
