On the 'tube

Bobby Troup


Fan of this man. I first new him as Dr. Joe Early on “Emergency” as a kid in the 70s. Later I learned he was a jazz musician and songwriter and Dixie McCall RN was played by his legendary wife Julie London.

Bobby Troup author of “Route 66, was the original hipster.



Me too! He seemed like such a geek and when my parents told me he was married to Julie London I thought "WTF is she doing with THAT nerd?" Later in life I heard his stuff in a situation I could get it and never looked back. LOL


I've seen him in various movies where he has a bit part playin' the piano and singing. He was a fine composer.
