  1. Ah, some of my earliest tv memories! lol
    Emergency. Man, I loved that show — and of course I had to have an ambulance toy. I remember being so happy to get the Ambulance toy so I could play Emergency 🙂
    Had to go find Hill Street Blues again — GREAT music!


    1. Mary says that great TV shows have great theme songs, and I agree.

      I love “Emergency!” Fifteen minutes of story, 45 minutes of driving around with the sirens going. It always impresses me that the firefighters are so goofy until the alarm bell rings. Then they’re all business and exceptionally good at their jobs. Great show and a great cast. Jack Webb had some great shows.

  2. If I were to compile theme songs for action adventure theme songs, I always loved the A-Team the Dukes of Hazzard.
    Still, these were some great themes. In this set I’m fairly partial to the Hill Street Blues theme. Even though I never watched the show too often, i enjoyed the theme.


    1. There really isn’t any kind of theme as far as what themes I feature in each one, just pretty much whatever crosses my mind. Those are a couple of good ones; I’ll add them to the list for Part 5, whenever I get around to it.


  3. I wasn’t sure if you wanted to vote in my battle of the bands? If not I’ll start closing out. Thank you.


  4. You know, a lot of people don’t remember Emergency!, but I totally had a crush on Johnny Gage. LOL. I’ve actually watched some of it on Netflix. The theme song I can’t get out of my mind is “Murder, She Wrote”.
