Original Air Date: May 7 1995
In this pilot for a proposed new TV series, set on Trumaine University’s radio station, W.H.I.P., DJ’s Oliver Cole and Mark Campbell host several hours of unconventional and overlooked programming. After a probing interview, divulging the past of Trumaine’s new dean of students, Steve Rhoades, both Oliver and Mark are kicked off the air and expelled from the college. Marcy arrives and upon hearing the news, she tries to get revenge against her ex-husband by leading a feeble on-air protest against their expulsion. But their protest doesn’t attract much attention.
