On the classic sitcom WKRP in Cincinnati, the 11th episode was titled The Contest Nobody Could Win. When Dr. Johnny Fever (Howard Hesseman) announces a song-naming contest, but mistakenly broadcasts a prize of $5,000, instead of $50, they have to make the contest so difficult that no one could win, which they do by splicing together incredibly short segments of 6 songs.
Just above the timer is the spliced-together clip as originally broadcast on WKRP in Cincinnati (For the DVD and the online brodcast, different songs have since been dubbed in). Now, I don't have $5,000, or even $50, to give if you get them all correct, but unlike Dr. Fever, I'll give you 5 minutes to name them, you won't be naming the artists, and you don't even have to name them in order! I'll even give you the correct answers after the 5 minutes are up.
Obviously, WKRP trivia fans will have an advantage over someone genuinely trying to determine the songs from the clip.
