Stephen J. Cannell We’ll Remember You Well

Television producer Stephen J. Cannell, known for his work on shows including “The Rockford Files” and “The A-Team,” died last Thursday at age 69. He created and produced several other iconic TV shows including “Greatest American Hero,”Hunter,” “Riptide,” “Hardcastle & McCormick,” “21 Jump Street,” “Wiseguy,” “The Commish,” “Profit,” and syndicated shows “Renegade” and “Silk Stalkings.” What I remember most however, was his unique sign-off. Sometimes it’s the little things that stick.

Though the A-Team was often defying
And Rockford was often denying,
From Stephen Cannell
I remember most well
His sign-off that sent paper flying.
