That’s Entertainment! #6: The Cast of Emergency!, 1970s
My current favorite TV show aired its last episode in 1979, but I watch it every week. I’m talking about the 1970s medical drama Emergency!, which aired weekly on NBC from 1972 to 1977 (with a half dozen TV movies in 1978 and ’79). Thanks to Cozi TV I can check out the adventures of Los Angeles County Fire Department Squad 51 and Rampart General Hospital every Saturday evening.
Here’s a publicity still of the show’s main cast: Kevin Tighe (Firefighter Paramedic Roy DeSoto, L.A. County FD Squad 51) and Randolph Mantooth (Firefighter Paramedic John Gage, L.A. County FD Squad 51) on top, then Bobby Troup (Joe Early, M.D., F.A.C.S., A.C.E.P.), Julie London (Dixie McCall, R.N.) and Robert Fuller (Kelly Brackett, M.D., F.A.C.S., A.C.E.P.) on the bottom.
