Submitter: Here’s a blast from the past! What’s crazy is that the public library this book came from was recently rebuilt/added onto and every book was re-shelved. You’d think someone would have noticed this?
I’d say it’s an awful library book because the information can probably be found elsewhere and the lack of cover art. I did enjoy the sponsor jingles scattered throughout the book and various ‘show notes’. I was also a little surprised by the 1984 copyright. People had to wait almost 30 years to know some if their favorite theme songs?
Holly: This book has nostalgia value, but is likely to get lost in the stacks due to its uninviting cover. The contents aren’t awful, but if space is an issue at your library it is an easy choice for weeding. A quick google for “tv theme songs sheet music” brings up all kinds of options, although they are not all free. It isn’t hurting anything on the shelves, but you’ll probably need to hand sell it to get any takers. It wouldn’t even do well on a display with that ugly mug.
I have “THOSE WERE THE DAYYYYYYS” Edith Bunker style on repeat in my head. And now you do too. You’re welcome.
