Nostalgia bomb: Full theme of Shining Time Station

Like many Americans back in the day, I first got into Thomas & Friends through Shining Time Station, a slice-of-life, sitcom-esque family show that ran most knowingly on PBS from 1989 through the '90s.

Aside from adapting Thomas & Friends and introducing it to American audiences, it had three major hires in its run: Didi Conn, Ringo Starr, and George Carlin after Starr left. also has a very iconic intro (after George Carlin was hired) and outro, sung by Kevin Roth. I was a huge fan of this show as a kid and still am more than twenty-five years later.

Earlier this year, I discovered the full theme on Soundcloud, and its calm, soothing music and vocals remain as nostalgic as ever. Have a listen:

I actually had a videotape back in my day where the framing story was about a kid dealing with a bully. Got some advice from the Little Mr. Conductor guy. Forgot the exact name for the video though since I couldn't read at that age.

OMG, I haven't seen this since the original Super Smash Bros. on N64.

Thank you. I take back any and all bad opinions I said about you.
