Those of you who live in or near Chicago...well,actually,in the post-cable TV era,I suppose even that's
not necessary...are surely familiar with station WGN.You may also be familiar with "Bozo,Gar and Ray",a Thanksgiving-Day special they began showing several years ago.It's a compilation of several of their locally-produced kids' programs,many dating back to the 60's,eventually leading up to Chicago's version of The Bozo The Clown Show,which became nationally famous,building up a fan base that kept it popular for years.
I live in southeastern Wisconsin,and I stumbled onto this program a few years back,liking this piece of nostalgia for the pre-cable days of local television so much that I made it mandatory viewing on Thanksgiving...however,for the second year in a row,I've missed it.According to WGN's website,they're still showing it...but our cable system (AT&T) instead shows the alternate programming they list.
It's not available on home video,so if anybody out there knows how,short of switching systems or moving to Chicago,I can watch it next year,I'd appreciate the input.
12-16-2014...UPDATE...I brought this to the attention of our local paper's TV/movie expert,and I found out in this morning's column that the channel we actually have is something called WGNAmerica,which has different programming from Chicago-based WGN.So,unless "Bozo,Gar & Ray" comes out on video,or we move to Chicago any time soon.....
