Trivia

The tag scene to the _WKRP in Cincinnati (1978)_ episode "Hold Up" (where an out-of-work announcer hijacks a remote broadcast) spoofs the common tag scenes of "Dragnet". DJ Johnny Fever (Howard Hesseman, who appears in this episode) is shown on camera, holding up a police sketch (presumably made from his verbal description) of Richard Nixon. See more »

Here comes the fuzz...
8 December 2011 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

Jack - and Bill - are on a public affairs show. They're their to do LAPD PR against 'Doctor Johhny Fever' AKA Howard Hesseman, and another debater.

The real fun is when the floor is opened up to the audience.

Then, we get the whole gamut; from the 'angry guy' who warns his gun - to use against an 'invading army,' Lou 'J5 on LOST IN SPACE' Wagner, as 'Johnny Dietz, the kid who wants to smoke some grass, and drop acid, to my favourite; 'Mondo Mbamba' who's there to tell 'honky's' what they can put all that bull about democracy.'

I'm writing this the day after it was announced Harry Morgan - Ofcr Bill Gannon passed away - marking the end of our link to this wonderful(ly) wacky show.

I love this episode, it's one of the standouts in my mind.

In honour of Bill, Joe, and the rest of the Dragnet gang R.I.P., and thanks for the memories
