I grew up watching the New York Yankees on WPIX Channel 11 out of New York and I can still hear the 11 Alive "Those Yankees are alive" theme song in my head. Channel 11 had great personalities such as Jeffrey Lyons and his movie reviews, Jerry Girard with sports and great shows too.

Do you recall the WPIX show called "The Magic Garden"? There were two female hosts that would sing songs, play acoustic guitar and talk to a big pink squirrel named Sherlock. If you remember this show you now have the chance to be part of the Magic Garden documentary.
