Adding to this ... does anyone remember the one from about 1975 with a couple of cowboys in a dusty Mexican-looking town with the instantly-recognizable intro to Yes's "Roundabout" playing in the background? I would love, love, love to see that one again! I also remember something about a sunrise. Somebody please tell me they remember it too!

Hey Jibbajabba, I'm still here, definitely interested about those tapes. Hope you get this.

It looks like OP isn't active here, but I know I have at least 1 VHS tape full of stuff that I recorded on channel 26, and there's no way that it doesn't have some of those channel idents on it, but this would be from the early 90's, right before it because a full-blown Fox affiliate. But I know exactly what he's talking about, with the "We're your station (city)..." with some local landmark being shown.

Just found this...

I remember in the late let 70's or very early there was a logo ident that i've been thinking of lately. it was set in space and the '26' was spinning quickly...there was a song in the background that went, "get to know us, get to know us, get to know us....tv 26, get to know us!"

it used to scare the hell out of me, i was only 6 or 7 from what i recall. i've been dying to find it just to prove to myself that i didn't fabricate it.

anyone remember that one?

I remember too. My job was from 1PM to 9PM. When I'd get home I'd watch 26 until I fell asleep. I had a cockatiel and he learned to mimic the channel 26 jingle. I was hilarious. I also remember just before 26 went off the air at night they'd show the 5 minute segment from the goofy guy at the Miami Planetarium talking about current astronomy events. I forget his name but I remember him saying, "Keep looking up".

I'm interested! I don't live in Fresno anymore, and I don't have any old VHS tapes, but I vaguely remember that ident. Have you tried contacting Pappas? They were in charge of KMPH TV during that time period, and they might have a copy of it:

I am very interested! There is an old ident from KMPH that I remember from 1977, when we first moved to the Valley. I have never forgotten it, and I was very sad to read in one of the posts above that KMPH erased all of their old idents! The ident was a jingle that went, "Our world is your world at TV 26...it's where you belong... where you belong my friend!" Does anyone remember it? Again, this was 1977, a bit before everyone had a VCR, so I would be surprised if anyone has it on an old tape.

I am - just didn't see it till now. Some of those old idents are fantastic. I'll keep an eye out for the one you're looking for. I remember it vividly. I do quite a bit of video archiving for stuff of personal interest (mostly sports) and I sometimes come across locally recorded stuff.

Soooo...I'm guessing no one really has any interest in this...

I would love to at least discuss these idents. It's intriguing that the Brits put a high priority on their television idents--even to the point of archiving them--but Americans seem largely passive about them. Does anyone recall these?
