Song of the Day: Bobby Sherman, “Little Woman”

Happy birthday to singer, actor, and EMT Bobby Sherman, who turns 79 today. Bobby was a teen idol in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s, then gave it all up to become an emergency medical technician after a guest appearance on Emergency!. He was also a reserve deputy sheriff with the San Bernardino Sheriff’s Police and a reserve police officer with the Los Angeles Police Department. "Little Woman" rose to #3 on the Hot 100 in 1969.

  1. He appeared on Frazier at the very end when the credits rolled. Roz was a huge fan. Funny that a show like Emergency changed his life.

    1. I think a lot of today’s paramedics and EMT’s owe their careers to Emergency! I think it’s fun to watch: the firefighters come off as complete goofballs, but when the alarm goes off, they know just how handle it.

  2. My crush on Bobby Sherman started with the TV show, Here Come the Brides. It made me want to go to Seattle. The lyrics of “Little Woman” make me cringe now. Why should she have to leave her world behind? It is interesting that he became an EMT. Good for him!
