Comment: At age three or four this radio show was a favorite of mine. An article I read a few years ago noted that "Big Jon & Sparkie" contained many/most of the fun based learning elements we now associate with Sesame Street. This comics begins with a "Who Am I?" segment. I can still remember how one such radio episode was the first time I heard the story of Francis Scott Key & the Star Spangled Banner.
