Emergency! Squad 51 playlist #2: Rocking with Johnny and Roy

Listen to and save Johnny and Roy's playlist on Spotify, created by EMS attorney Doug Wolfberg, so you can listen to it whenever you like


Last month, we posted a Squad 51 playlist in homage to Emergency! and paramedics Johnny Gage and Roy DeSoto.

And because you can never have enough tunes to keep you entertained while on shift, we bring you round two of Squad 51's playlist. EMS lawyer and rock and roll band guitarist Doug Wolfberg submitted this playlist.

"Roy's playlist is more mellow, classic and he would ever so subtly roll his eyes at the edgier rock and roll and up-tempo tunes on Johnny's playlist," Wolfberg said.

Here are 25 tunes Johnny and Roy would have been playing on the radio in Squad 51, the 8-track players in the POVs or over the loudspeakers in their Los Angeles County fire station.

Listen to and save Johnny and Roy's playlist on Spotify so you can listen to it whenever you like. If you have an idea for an EMS-themed playlist, send us an email or share it in the comment section below.
