I'm no TV fan, generally speaking. Jesus knows, I'm too busy listening to records and writing Robot articles to keep up with Lost or American Idol. I watched a lot of TV when I was a kid, but that was in the '60s, and by the time I was about 13 I seemed to loose interest, probably because I discovered Grand Funk or something along those lines. So no, I never watched Hill Street Blues, Magnum P.I., Hunter, The Rockford Files (well ok, I saw it a few times because my Dad always watched cop shows), L.A. Law or The God Damned A-Team, which means I'm not all that familiar with Mike Post.
Being a child of '60s television, I grew up loving certain TV themes. Stuff like Mission Impossible, Mannix (Lalo Schifrin - fuck yeah!), Bonanza, Get Smart, F Troop, Peter Gunn, Outer Limits, I Spy,
So here we are in the '80s and Mike Post is an Emmy winning phenomenon and I don't get it, nor do I give a shit. But I figure 20 some odd years later, some of this stuff might sound pretty funny, especially when Mikey does his instrumental take on some of the pop hits of the day. Yep, pretty funny alrighty. Excuse me while I go shoot myself in the head. This is the end of Mike's post.
