Who Likes Short Shorts?





:: Theme from Magnum P.I. ::

If Magnum P.I. could get away with wearing tight short shorts, why not Mike Post? Lord knows, I've already had my fun knocking this guy, so once you stop laughing at the picture sleeve of this single, let's take a look at some of Mike Post's accomplishments. We all know about Hill Street Blues, Rockford Files and NYPD Blue, but did you know he was an original member of The First Edition (with Kenny Rogers)? He played guitar on I Got You Babe by Sonny & Cher and did the orchestral arrangement on Mason Williams' Classical Gas. Here's a sampling of his TV scores:

Toma
The Bob Crane Show
Black Sheep Squadron
Richie Brockelman: Private Eye
The White Shadow
Big Shamus, Little Shamus
Knight Rider
Tenspeed & Brownshoe
Greatest American Hero
Hardcastle & McCormick
Doogie Howser

The man has won countless awards including 5 Grammys and has basically had one hell of a career. So I guess I gotta hand it to him. He may not be my cup of tea, but he's got good legs.


Mike
