The Fun Town jingle from the Fun Town amusement park on 95th and Stony Island in Chicago, the last amusement park in the city limits (1950-1982). Read the history of Fun town at http://beltmag.com/elegy-fun-town-chi... The jingle was produced by legendary WVON deejay Richard Pegue (who also did the famous Moo and Oink jingles). Pegue (photo at 1:15) produced the jingle (his first) in 1970, based on a track he recorded for the Brothers and Sisters vocal group the year before. His wife, Pat James, shared composer credits. The kids speaking at the beginning are eight year-old Lorenzo Modeste and his ten year-old sister Lisa Ramirez (photo at 1:05). LYRICS: Hey Mama, Hey Daddy, Let's Go to Fun Town Fun Town, Fun Town for the Kids and You 95th and Stony Island Avenue Fun Town!
