Here is the opening for the Family Classics with Frazier Thomas presentation of "Boys Town" on WGN Channel 9. Includes:

WGN Bumper promo for the premiere of The Incredible Hulk, which started on Monday, December 21st 1981. Also features the WGN Circle-9 Logo, which had been introduced earlier in the year. Voiceover by Floyd Brown. Kind of funny that the promo is for The Incredible Hulk, while the WGN logo uses the Superman theme.

Opening of Family Classics with Frazier Thomas. Features the older-style logo for Family Classics. Gotta love that opening music!

The Family Classics theme song was called "Moviescope" and was a piece of library music composed by Dennis Berry. It was originally released on the Berry/Conroy label.

This aired on local Chicago TV on Sunday, December 13th 1981 at 3:30pm.

I loved Family Classics. I wish it were still on. Thanks for bringing back so many memories Fuzzy.

I have been searching for a decade for the theme song. One lead suggests it is a piece of Library music called "moviescope". Last year, i had my WGN engineer friend call Roy Leonard and ask him if they had the music at WGN still...he said they did not and he did not know the name of it....:( darn it!!!

Forget the theme song. We need to know whose job it was to photogenically rumple the velvet underneath the books. What would be the Emmy category for that nomination? Art Direction??

You guys can listen to the audio version at my Chicago TV group if I didn't updated the audio clips soon enough. :-)
