Radio XLVIII, side A, track 9: “Bad Case Of Loving You (Doctor Doctor)” by Robert Palmer

Robert Palmer - Doctor DoctorOh, Robert Palmer, holy shit this song is fantastic!  Just like Pat Benatar from yesterday, it’s been far too long since we’ve heard from you.  And the last song we heard by you was ALSO on the Hot New Music Hour.  This was a helluva winning streak I was on in the music-taping-off-the-radio department.

But we’re not hear to talk about this song, Robert Palmer.  I mean, it would make sense that we would, since it’s pretty amazing and all.  BUT, I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to talk about one of my favorite shows that started around the time I was recording this song off the radio.  That show was “Doctor Doctor”.  Now, this song wasn’t the song that opened the show (but it should have been), the song was actually a version of “Good Lovin'”, but I don’t think I’ve ever been able to record it off the radio, so here we are.

If you’re not familiar with “Doctor Doctor”, it’s all right, Robert Palmer.  I may be the only one who watched it when I was a kid.  It starred Matt Frewer as a kooky doctor who shared a medical practice with some other less-kooky doctors.  That was about it.  I’m guessing that maybe it doesn’t hold up real well.  It was super sitcommy.  But as you know, I’d already loved Matt Frewer because of his portrayal of Max Headroom, and “Doctor Doctor” just proved to me that he was the most amazing actor in the world.  And I stand by that.  If a TV show or movie includes Matt Frewer, I’m totally there.  Even if said TV or movie isn’t very good, I guarantee you that Matt Frewer always will be.  I found a few clips of the show on YouTube.  The fact that I had to type “a few” is shameful because I need a damned box set of this show, Robert Palmer.  If they can put out a DVD of “Hey Vern It’s Ernest!” (which I already own), then certainly they (whoever “they” are) can let me have “Doctor Doctor” as well.

But for now, we’re just going to have to settle for the following clips.  And getting to hear your damn great song dulls the pain a bit, too. . .
