The Rockford Files would always come on immediately before or after the Smurfs where I grew up. Although I'd always groove out to the Rockford Files theme, I was of an age to prefer the little blue guys.

i'm with you duke and cecile. ah, the good days.
Avatar 10:09am Cecile:

It showed how unglamorous private eye work was. The rooting through files, hanging out in crappy bars, etc.

I think about that because I read someone saying "Leverage" made them want to be a thief. No, they just want to live in magical Timothy Hutton land. I love that show, but c'mon.

I only remember the Rockford files from A&E. Was recently working thought he series on Netflix until it got pulled from Canada.

That sucks Andrew. When I was training for cross country skiing, I'd do one Rockford File on the Nordic Track three times a week. That'll give you legs like tree trunks.

WOW. The Room. I used to have that record.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:14am adrian in mpls:

50 years - get it off my radio!

So, 50 years back for me being a child of the 70s, was 20s music. Which was undecipherable to me.

@Joe - well, it's war. again. we're used to it. I'm safe but I've got daily sirens and running for shelters. Still, my condition is gazillion times better than the people in Gaza. They are the ones who truly suffer here. If you want, I wrote this, you might find it interesting: www.yairyona.net...

peace on us all.
