Nostalgia Theater: When Chicago Enters the Summer Zone...

Something a little different for this, the last Nostalgia Theater of 2012. As you know, every once in awhile I like to focus on an artifact that's sort of specific to me, and I think today's is one example. Back in the late '80s (specifically, summer of '89), there was a TV spot that aired in heavy rotation on Chicago's WGN (Channel 9) promoting the station's rejiggered summer lineup (Andy Griffith and Benson reruns, anyone?), and which I saw a lot of during our annual trip to Chi-town from Saudi that year. For some reason the jingle just stuck with me, but never in a million years did I think I'd ever see it again, so I was as surprised as anyone to see that it had enough resonance with someone else that they actually tossed it onto YouTube. Enjoy!
