My boyfriend tries to sing me the theme song from this show. I am glad I finally got to hear it. Now I can go on with that "lovely" song in my head.

I remember the show in original run and reruns. Once when I was in LA I had to go up on Mulholland Drive as I think a lot of it was shot up there.I could just see BC, parked on the roadside, barking on the radio. Great, fun site. Thanks.

Someone, somewhere has GOT TO put Highway Patrol back on tv--I haven't seen it in decades. I lived in AZ as a boy and am now 49. Great show. Great actor.
John Mitten email@example.com Manchester, NH, USA Jan 04/2001 08:09 PST
A great site. A great show. ZIV produced some excellent gritty stuff and their programs should be aired on some station somewhere, right? It's a joke--there are a million channels out there now, many showing what might as well be dead air. Why not one dedicated to old cop shows, or maybe 1/2 hour black and white action stuff, including Highway Patrol, Rescue 8, Whirlybirds, Everglades--hey, they're not lacking for content (though I realize prints of something like Rescue 8 might be damn hard to come by). Right now TV Land and the Mystery Channel are the most likely candidates to run HP. Hey, while we're wanting out loud here, why not a Highway Patrol book?
Larry Blamire firstname.lastname@example.org Los Angeles, CA Jan 06/2001 13:09 PST
great! would like to see reruns.

What was the first year automatic transmissions became standard?
Tom Casey Olive542@aol.com Morro Bay, California, USA Jan 12/2001 10:59 PST
The 54 Olds was standard. The 55 CHP Buick fleet were half and half. I think a few were standard on the Pilot. But after that they were all automatics.
Gary firstname.lastname@example.org Jan 12/2001 18:36 PST
I just can't believe what a great job you did on this web-site. I never thought I'd find anything like this about the great Highway Patrol TV show. I was only six years old when it origianlly aired, and it was really nice to hear the sounds and see the sites from BC and his fellow officers. I hope someday we'll see this great show on TV Land.
Ray Tejral email@example.com Jan 15/2001 09:42 PST
As a kid I never missed an episode of Highway Patrol. Perusing your site brought back some great memories.I never thought I would wind up being a law enforcement officer, I guess this show contributed to it. Thanks for the memories!

I Have recently restored an original 1958 Texas Highway Patrol car. One of the displays I use when showing it in car shows is a TV/VCR in the trunk showing 4 segments from our favorite vintage TV show. I get a lot of favorable comments about the series, especially from fans from that period. I would like to communicate with other vintage police car "junkies".

I was also a big fan of Highway Patrol.... My first new car was a `55 Century. Looking back the TV may had something to with me buying it.
After many years, I have now purchased another `55 identical to the first.
Bob Coker email@example.com Winston Salem, NC Jan 18/2001 10:53 PST
Enjoyed your site. When I was a kid, I had the opening words to each episode memorized.
Anyone out there have any info on the 1956 TV series "West Point?" Any reruns lately or videos for sale?

I was browsing the web looking for 3 old shows. "Highway Patrol", "Sea Hunt", and "The Whirlybirds" which I grew up with and have never seen in syndication. Do you know if there are videos of any of the above available, and were they ever in syndication?
Doug Nyholm firstname.lastname@example.org SF Bay Area, California Jan 31/2001 15:38 PST
Gary and Crew...Fantastic web site! This is a fitting honor to the show that is a fond memory of my youth. I would have loved to have a commanding officer like Dan Mathews (Broderick The Main Man). I tried to get our agency to go to black and white Buick slick tops. I enjoyed the CNN segment on you a few years back. If I ever seize a 1955 Buick Century Special...Long Live ZIV!

Yesterday I learned Robert Waguespack recently passed away. Robert was a big fan of Highway Patrol. He used to come to various car shows where we became friends and he even got to meet Kelly Crawford. I'm grateful for the fact my car and our website added some join to his final days...10-4!
Here are some of Robert's own thoughts: "For all of you, like me, who have previously failed to find any sites truly dedicated to the preservation of Dan's legacy; this is your chance to come forward and join the premiere group of fans. Sign the guestbook so that the scope of Danism can be seen." Robert Waguespack, Tujunga, CA. USA, Nov/20/1998

I am a 51 year old from Canada and love the old Highway Patrol TV series. It was great looking at your page!!!
Love your ol' Buick as well!
I like to watch almost all the old TV series'.
Westerns, State Trooper (Rod Cameron), Cannonball (the trucking drama), and Alfred Hitchcock Presents.
All of 'em! I guess it's the appeal of nostalgia.
Compared to today, they really were better days,
methinks. (?) Even with all the cold war paranoia. LOL
Thanks for putting this page together. It was super looking at all the info.

Really enjoyed this site. I have also been a fan of HP since I was a child. Matter of fact it was because of this program that I have made a career in law enforcement for 26 years. Do you know of anyone who has copies of videos for sale of this program.

Great site, always loved this show, as you probably know we supplied the helicopters for the show, along with Whirlybirds. Our website is www.nationalhelicopter.com
Richard Hart email@example.com Van Nuys, CA Apr 18/2001 07:38 PDT
I love your site and have visited it often. In fact, I made a Whirlybirds baseball cap with the patch you sell. I understand that Roy Bourgois worked for National. Many people don't realize that Highway Patrol featured the Bell 47 several years before Whirlybirds. I hope to meet you at one of the Helicopter events I often bring my Buick to soon. 10-4!

I was a fan from when I was four and five years old. Whenever the show came on I had to put on my sportcoat, shirt, tie, hat and a cap gun in my inside pocket of my sportcoat. My career was decided back then. I went on to become a police chief, retiring after 24 years and now serve as a Chief County Detective in Pennsylvania.

As a young lad in the 1950's, grew up with Highway Patrol..Our family remembers it well....Dan Matthews and that Buick, with the familiar [one and only] automatic transmission sound....good memories.... As crazy kids did, in those days, we played 'cops and robbers', and there was always a Dan Matthews 'wanna be'....Good site.
Bob Genova firstname.lastname@example.org Palmdale, Ca, USA May 12/2001 17:33 PDT
I really liked the show and i was wondering if anyone knew when the car two way radios came into use?
Bill Terrace, B.C. May 15/2001 22:19 PDT
Radios were first used by the CHP in 1936 when transmitter KAPI was constructed in Grass Valley, CA. The funds were provided by the President of Idaho and Maryland Mining Corporation as a thank you for patroling the firm's gold shipments. Motorcycles were the first units equipped with experimental receivers. 10-4!

Wow - What a great site. I too remember growing up with and watching "Highway Patrol". Been cruising the highways for the past 28 years in my black and white patrol cars. I just purchased over 100 episodes of "Highway Patrol" on VHS Tapes. Now with your episode list, I can number them and put them in order by episode. Thanks for the great memories of "Highway Patrol".

I loved this show! As kids we all saw cops as the good guys.
Ol' Dan Matthews was the man! The old iron they drove was a
kick too! (Of course it was new then...) Anyway, I sent
TV land an e-mail...hope it works. By the way, I represent
a ham radio group some 40 or so strong, and to the man, we'd
all like to see it back on the air.

I learned Frank Runyon passed away today. He wasn't doing well when I saw him last month. He will be missed. I hope he is having a drink with Brod right now, 10-4!
Gary Goltz Jun 28/2001 23:38 PDT
CHP officer assigned as adviser to the show.
Sorry to hear that one of the CHP'S finest had made his last patrol. I talked to Frank a few times on the phone about Brod and the HIGHWAY PATROL show over the years. He was a great help to me. I know him and Brod are talking over the good old days about being on the set now. I know the CHP will give him a proper send off to his next patrol beat on the highways in heaven.
It's a sad day for all of us who love the show.

It was wonderful to find a web site and information devoted to this fine series and wonderful actor Broderick Crawford. The series was very good, and featured many scenes shot north of Los Angeles in the Thousand Oaks area, before it was so built up. Broderick Crawford was one of the all time great "lush" actors, he always seemed to have had four drinks with lunch just before appearing.

Thanks for creating this site and bringing up lots of great memories for many people.

I always thought I was the only person who observed Oct 4th as "Broderick Crawford Day". I went into the computer and was delighted to find others with my same warped sense of humor! The one thing that stayed in my memory was having him say "10-4" and then he'd THROW the mic down or into the car. He NEVER hung up the mic!
Now then, is there any BC fans that also observe "FESTIVUS"?
(for the rest of us)

Reading deeper thru your site and i am amazed how good it really is. Sent an inquiry to National Helecopter to see if the BeLL 47 might also be involved somehow in the scene where Lucy Ricardo is lowered aboard the SS Constitution on their way to Europe. The side shot(maybe in studio) seems to carry the same number N975B. Also love your pix of BC star on Hollywood Walk of Fame. I have one from 1969. Will return to site often.
Bob Anderson firstname.lastname@example.org MN USA Oct 06/2001 18:08 PDT
For many, many years my husband and his best friend have had a running joke on October 4th - always calling it Broderick Crawford Day. They play pranks on each other using toy police cars and always saying "10-4" in some ingenious way. A few weeks ago my husband discovered this website and sent it to his friend on Oct 4th - he truly "one-upped" him this year.

I loved Highway Patrol as a child. I still have one or two episodes on tape from a local TV station in the 80s. I still use a few Dan Matthews phrases in my work as cop here in Toronto.
Paul Griffin firstname.lastname@example.org Toronto Ontario Canada Oct 13/2001 16:41 PDT
I remember watching this show in the early and middle sixties, probably the first rerun phase. I loved the police cars. If I remember right, they had different makes for different seasons. I remember Buicks, Dodges, and I think some Ford products. Maybe some one has info on the types of cars they used, and what seasons.
Anyway, great site.

A moment of silence with the passing of Frederick W. Ziv at the age of 96 over the weekend. It it wasn't for Mr. Ziv and his great marketing skills in syndicated television I doubt the show would have sustained for four years....thanks Mr. Ziv for giving us one of the greatest shows of all time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ed Hider Oct 16/2001 18:17 PDT
The show was a little corny at times, but in its day, it was great. It was so hard to understand Broderick except when he said 10-4. The kid next door and I would watch Highway Patrol, then go play it on our tricycles on the sidewalk. Too bad we did not have a helicopter. I would love to see reruns perhaps on TV Land.
Jerry Swift Oct 16/2001 22:59 PDT
Passei minha infância assistindo a Highway Patrol e sempre fui um fanático pela série. Porém o tempo passou e fiquei algumas décadas sem assistir a nenhum episódio. Finalmente na Directv foi possível novamente rever essa série fantástica.
Gostaria de saber o endereço de algum fã clube da série Highway Patrol.
Um grande abraço aqui do Brazil.

Good to be back at this great site after a hard drive crash. Gary, any chance to get an MP3 clip of that great dramatic march used within the show as background music? I think you know the piece I mean--since it was the predominant music next to the title march. It's GREAT music, right up there with the incredible Harbor Command title march. Which reminds me, rest in peace and thank you, Fred Ziv.

I just discovered your site. I was a fan of the show when I was a kid. Watching the show and also Dragnet made me wanted to be a policeman when I was younger. I love your car looks like you are having alot of fun , tell your wife to hang in there. I remember on an old Saturday Night Live show when Broderick Crawford was on , they did a takeoff on Highway Patrol it was great to see him again. Is there any where I can find any tapes of the old show if so please let me know if possible. Gotta go now , have fun.

Congratulations on a brilliant site .It brought back lots of happy memories.The series so impressed me as a child that it encouraged me to become a police officer here in the U.K. when I grew up .Is there a U.K. fan club that might assist in obtaining videos of the series? .Keep up the good work anyway its a great tribute to a great series .
HARRY MOFFATT email@example.com Stockport Cheshire England Nov 04/2001 18:11 PST
I'm a good friend of Gary Goltz and truly enjoy this site. It's quite obvious to me that a great deal of time and effort went in to it. I take issue with one thing on this website; Dan Mathews was never called the Chief of the H.P. he was always referred to as "The Head of the Highway Patrol." Although it's safe to say he was the Chief, I don't recall any episodes where they refer to him as such. In any event we need to negotiate a deal with the program manager at TV Land to have it returned to the air waves or have a H.P Fandamonium Weekend or two so we can get high quality video tapes of the show. Maybe TV Land could have a salute to COPS and do that for us!

I think I was addicted to Highway Patrol almost as much as you. I don't know why, it just captured my sense of drama, and exemplified in simple terms the virtue of right triumphing over evil. I am old enough to say that I watched it when it was primetime TV on Saturday night.
Great sight! Thanks.

Garvey calls him Chief in EP #6 Hitchiker. Under the CHP to be the Head he would have been the Commissioner starting in the mid 50's. Before then Chief was the top position. Many think he was a Captain since he worked out of a field office. I will have to re-watch my episodes to find othe references on his title. This will be a labor of love!

Just want to thank Gary Goltz for all his efforts on behalf of Highway Patrol. Being the director of the pilot film, I appreciate his on going concern for the show and its intent

Thanks so much for this great site. Many times I've thought back to the sound of the squealing tires and siren, with Dan barking orders into his radio. Your site has brought back great memories. Thanks for the hard work, it's really apprecaited.

I am the star of Whirlybirds, but my friend Broderick is the super-star of Higway Patrol. God bless us and Usa.

In light of what is transpiring in our beloved and by far the greatest nation that ever existed not only on Earth but The U.S.A. is very probably the most wonderful government that ever existed in the entire 12-14 billion years old universe! The point I am making is,"Highway Patrol",the real state troopers of the 50's would have no problem defeating islamic terrorists of today!
