Family Classics, originally aired on WGN-TV, on Friday Nights. I don't remember what year it was, when WGN-TV, rescheduled the show to Sunday afternoons. Just the same, this was back when Chicago's 'local' television stations, were actually FUN to watch, (at least if you were a kid, or a "armchair athlete").
Kids got to watch "Ray Rayner & Friends", before they went to school in the mornings. And they came home for lunch, to watch "Bozo's Circus". Dad, got all of his local sports! Da Sox, Da Cubs, Da Bears, Da Bulls, And Da Bears!

Pure nostagia, everytime I hear this tune it takes me back to when I was young. I always make me think about one of the programs, Robin Hood. A GREAT tune!

Dave Longenecker says:

Frazier Thomas was a very classy guy. I always enjoyed him in Family Classics, and Garfield Goose too. I once wrote to Frazier Thomas at WGN to ask if he would show me how to play the "Jaw Harp" that he would sometimes play on Garfield Goose. I had one, but didn't know how to play it. He sent me a handwritten letter that he would demonstrate the "Jaw Harp" on the Garfield Goose show on … such and such a day… and thanked me for watching the show, and wishing me well in my school. Just a real classy guy to help out a little boy like that!

I wish someone would create a compilation set of Family Classics and sell on Amazon. They’d make a fortune.
