Man, did I love Zoom. What, ain't ya in the know? It was a Boston-area kids show on PBS during the 1970's. They did a new Zoom a few years ago - I dunno, maybe it is still on?

Of course there are a few vintage Zoom pieces on YouTube. The songs are branded into my brain. I can't believe how much of this stuff I remember. (And I can't remember my phone number!) Here is the first episode (in 4 parts). The Zoom Play Of The Week is brilliant! Joe is the star. (He is so Tim Burton!) I totally remember that particular "Zoom Rap" and "The Cat Came Back". Great stuff. I still like it!
