"WZAZ" is the name of the fictional Chicago radio station in the movie Airplane! from 1980. Shortly after repeating its motto, "Where Disco Lives Forever!," the station is knocked off the air when the eponymous airplane clips the station's broadcasting tower while attempting to make an emergency landing. The fictional call letters stood for initials of the writers of the film, David Zucker, Jim Abrahams, and Jerry Zucker.
A fictional television station bearing the "WZAZ" callsign appears twice on the side of a news reporter's 1974 Ford Country Squire station wagon as seen at the beginning of the 1976 movie The Big Bus. Briefly in another scene, a reporters camera is seen at the bus terminal's front doors filming the busses passengers with the same callsign.
A fictional station bearing the "WZAZ" callsign appeared in episodes of four sitcoms:The Odd Couple episode The New Car (in which Dick Clark had a cameo as a DJ at the radio station); the One Day At A Time episode Peabody's War, in which Indianapolis TV station WZAZ conducts a news report on a tenant taking Schneider hostage in Mrs. Romano's apartment; The Andy Griffith Show episode "The Mayberry Chef"; and the first episode of the fourth season of Happy Days, Fonzie Loves Pinky (Part 1).
