Here's the opening titles for The Barry Farber Show which aired on WFLD Channel 32.

Farber, a veteran talk radio host usually based in New York City, was intended as a replacement for the late Lou Gordon whose long-running discussion show The Lou Gordon Program, based out of WFLD's sister station WKBD Channel 50 in Detroit and shown on other Kaiser stations including Channel 32, ended with Gordon's death on May 24th 1977.

However, Farber's show, likewise originating from WKBD, was very short-lived, only lasting a few months.

This starts off with a WFLD production slate (with Kaiser-era "32" logo) indicating that it was directed by Ray Barnas on 11-30-77 - by which point original owner Field Communications was nearly four months into its second stint as station owner.

The song heard is S-Scape - Synergy from the album Sequencer from the record company Voiceprint.

Born in Baltimore in 1930 and raised in Greensboro, North Carolina, Farber began his radio career in the ’50s when he joined WNBC/New York as producer of Tex and Jinx. In 1960 he launched Barry Farber’s Open Mike at WINS, and two years later he began a 15-year association with WOR. In 1977 Farber left WOR to run for mayor of New York but returned to the microphone the following year for a decade-plus run at WMCA. In 1990 he went national as part of the ABC Radio Network, and since 2008 Farber has been heard on CRN Digital Talk Radio. He is a 2014 National Radio Hall of Fame inductee.

This aired on local Chicago TV in December 1977.
