Ancestoral to Mister Rodgers, Romper Room & Sesame Street,
3 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

GOING BACK TO the early 1950's, we can recall this morning show being aired here in Chicago, Inasmuch as this writer was by now a very sophisticated 2nd Grader, there wasn't much in it. The story was very different for three younger siblings born in 1949 (Rosemary), Jim (1951) and Bob (1952). They all benefited from Miss Frances' efforts at one time or another.

AS WE DO recall, the dialog was slow, deliberate and very plainly annunciated. Diction and correct grammar was supreme. The proceedings began with a song of introduction by Miss Frances, herself. Subjects were always covered in a most deliberate manner, remembering that repetitiveness is the most important factor in prepping young minds for greater things to come.

WE DID THINK that this was a local production, originating from NBC Studios of wholly owned subsidiary, WNBQ, Channel 5 (now WMAQ). We do distinctly recall that "Miss Frances" Horwich's program was preceded by the UNCLE WIN Show; which featured local Folk Singer and co-founder of the Old Town School of Folk Music, Win Stracke.
