Oh, and by the way, if you weren't at D23 this year, be sure to download out Paul Barrie's, "A Window to the Magic" show 485 feautring The Silly Symphonies live on stage!  It has fast become my favorite WTTM episode.

Mouse Lounge Single Shot: The Disneyland Band

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 23:01:42 +0000

Season 9 of The Mouse Lounge continues to serve up single and double shots of Disney spirits! Today, a single shot of the (new) Disneyland Band!  Say what you will about their Main Street USA crib of the All American College Band, (and you've been VERY vocal) but despite their "diaper" status this is a crackerjack group of musicians (I'd say "men", except there is ONE female in this particular performance group) particularly worthy of listening to when they break free of the funnel and find their way into Frontierland.

(((HEADPHONES STRONGLY RECOMMENDED)))

Today, the Disney community lost one of it's own.  Great Disney fan and Disneyland employee par excellence, Jim Finazzo passed away after a short illness.

In June 2011, Jim, Liana, and I sat down in Trader Sam's, had drinks and a great chat.  Liana and I sincerely hope that you find this re-post a fitting tribute to Jim and that which he loved so well, the Disney Parks.

We send out this episode with love and our heartfelt condolences to Tammy and the Finazzo family. 

Rest in peace, Jim Finazzo.  You will forever live in our hearts.

Mouse Lounge -- Season 07 -- Episode 01 -- January 16, 2013

Wed, 16 Jan 2013 06:59:58 +0000

(((HEADPHONES STRONGLY RECOMMENDED))) From the Disney Archives:  In 1949 Disney was hard at work on another princess film which could make or break the studio, Cinderella.  Ilene Woods, who provided the singing and speaking voice of Cinderella, and Eleanor Audley, famous as the step mother and later nine years later, Maleficent in Sleeping Beauty take on the roles of Snow White and the Wicked Queen in this RCA Victor Little Nipper storybook album, narrated by Dennis Day. In those days before the existence of Disneyland Records, it was common for other labels to license the songs, score, and narration of a Disney film.  Some, like this one were brilliant, utilizing talent from the Disney canon and top notch bandleaders, Paul Smith in this case.  This is a version of Snow White like you’ve never heard it before… but no less enjoyable! From Vault Disney:   Familiar clips have been excerpted and featured in several DVDs and television specials, but in reality were part of a ½ hour interview conducted by Fletcher Markle who directed The Incredible Journey for Walt.  It aired on the CBC in 1963 and has seldom been seen nor heard in its entirety since.  Until now. From the Studio Morgue:  This episode we unearth the now legendary soup eating sequence from Snow White.  It was supervised by one of Disney’s legendary nine old men, Ward Kimball. Each show we present a high definition ride-through from Disneyland, DCA, or Walt Disney World.  This week, with the recent closure of one of the Magic Kingdom’s original attractions, it’s time to do a compare and contrast of the two versions of Snow White’s Scary Adventures.  We’ll take in first the Disneyland version, then fly off to the East Coast for one of the last performances of the same attraction, recorded in April of last year. We'll close this week’s show with a  grab bag of cover tunes from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.  Who you’re hearing will be in the show notes on Mouselounge.com.

Mouse Lounge -- Season 06 -- Episode 14 -- April 13, 2012

Fri, 13 Apr 2012 06:26:50 +0000

(((HEADPHONES STRONGLY RECOMMENDED)))

This episode, the Mouse Lounge proffers a plethora of percussion!

But first, we go Behind the Mickey Bar, as Liana and I talk about our upcoming meet at Westfest 2012 and then delve into Disney news.

Next, a Mouse Lounge Special Feature:  The BBCs Russell Davis looks at how the archives have treated to the two faces of Walt Disney.  Uncle Walt, who brought laughter and pleasure to millions, and… the rather tough businessman and social engineer. Enjoy the third of a five part series, Double Disney.

Then, from the Disney Archives:  From the January 30, 1966 episode of Wonderful World of Color, Professor Ludwig von Drake introduces us to the art of Jazz and the swinging short subject, After You’ve Gone from the 1946 package film, Make Mine Music!

Then, from Vault Disney:  A few weeks ago I played a Disneyland Record, A Child’s Introduction to Melody based on the short, Toot Whistle, Plunk, and Boom.  Well your response was overwhelmingly positive but you asked, What about the original cartoon?   The short was originally released to theaters in 1953 and made use of the then new widescreen format and novel stereophonic sound.  It finally found life on DVD when it was released early on in the Walt Disney Treasures series called, Disney Rarites and I present the entire short for you here.   If you’ve never seen it, you can find it on youtube, albeit with rather poor audio quality.  Still, it’s absolutely worth seeing.

Then, from the original Mickey Mouse Club in 1956, the Firehouse Five + 2 join the Mouseketeers for a rip roarin’ Dixieland good time!  Listen carefully during The Tiger Rag, that’s Cubby O’Brien on the skins in a wicked awesome solo!

Each show we present a high definition ride-through from a Disney Park East or a Disney Park West.  Percussion in the parks was brought front and center last year, drum line and all with the introduction of Disneyland’s, Soundsational parade.  Have a listen to this drumming infused Mouse Lounge remix!

Then, we head over to Epcot where even the street sweepers must take a break and form, the Jamitors.

We’ll close the show with a pair of percussive tracks from Tarzan, first the original “Trashin’ the Camp” from the original soundtrack, then the rich harmony laced pop cover featuring Phil Collins and *Nsync.  Lastly, as a special bonus, a battle of the drummers between the Muppets, Animal, and Travis Barker as he guests with the Electric Mayhem on Jimmy Kimmel live performing Can You Picture That!

But first, we go Behind the Mickey Bar, as Liana and I talk about the new Cars Land, the just opened Jolly Holiday Bakery, Castmember beards, Fastpass, and more. Next, a Mouse Lounge Special Feature:  The BBCs Russell Davis looks at how the archives have treated to the two faces of Walt Disney.  Uncle Walt, who brought laughter and pleasure to millions, and… the rather tough businessman and social engineer.  Enjoy the second of a five part series, Double Disney.   Then, from the Disney Archives:  Based on the Oscar winning cartoon, “Toot Whistle Plunk and Boom” comes a marvelous record narrated by the unmistakable Thurl Ravenscroft.  From the 1963 Disneyland Record DQ-1232, have a listen to “A Child’s Introduction to the Instruments of the Orchestra”.  Don’t let the title fool you; this record was lavishly produced.  It’s hard to believe this mini masterpiece landed in the kiddy records bin.   Then, from Vault Disney:  We focus on the music of two Silly Symphonies from the thirties.  The first is “Music Land” from 1935 and “The Woodland Café” from 1937.  Both are perfect examples of the use of music to further the narrative, and are just great fun to listen to.  I’ll provide a description of the of the plot for Music Land, so you can better follow along.   Each show we present a high definition ride-through from a Disney Park East or a Disney Park West.  Did you know that Disneyland boasts ten different live performance groups that play in all four corners of the park?  This episode, you’ll get to hear from every one of them!  You’ll hear, the Main Street Piano Player, The Dapper Dans,  Hook and Ladder Company, the Straw Hatters, Billy Hill and the Hillbillies, Farley the Fiddler, The Bootstrappers, The Jambalaya Jazz Band, The Royal Street Bachelors,  and The Pearly Band.  Plus, you’ll hear special performances recorded on Fat Tuesday of the New Orleans Jazz Band, The Bayou Bash featuring Princess Tiana, and the Disneyland Band performing it’s full noontime concert with the theme, “Sunday in the Park”.    Gary Chambers (805) 270-5785 The Mouse Lounge http://www.mouselounge.com Subscribe to our write a review about the Mouse Lounge Podcast: http://phobos.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewPodcast?id=180696323  [...]

Mouse Lounge -- Season 06 -- Episode 10 -- January 23, 2012

Tue, 24 Jan 2012 01:27:42 +0000

This week, the Mouse Lounge celebrates a birthday and takes a trip around World Showcase!  First up, a Mouse Lounge Special Feature:  The BBCs Russell Davis looks at how the archives have treated to the two faces of Walt Disney.  Uncle Walt, who brought laughter and pleasure to millions, and… the rather tough businessman and social engineer.  Enjoy the first of a five part series, Double Disney.  Next, from the Disney Archives, we dust off an old Capital Records album , DBX-3365 from 1954, as Disney Characters from countless films and shorts come to celebrate at Mickey Mouse’s Birthday Party.  Then, from Vault Disney:  We travel to Epcot Center, circa 1982, as Danny Kaye introduces us to the wonders of World Showcase.  Each show we present a high definition ride-through from a Disney Park East or a Disney Park West.    Enjoy a musical trip around World Showcase featuring the talented artists and music groups who perform each day, ending a Mouse Lounge mix of Illuminations: Reflections of Earth.  We close the show with a pair of musical soundtracks inspired by World Showcase.  First, is the Laserphonic Fantasy.  This show made its debut on the World Showcase Lagoon in June 1984 and as the name implies featured lasers including the first use of non-continuous lines in a laser animation and the first use of laser graphics on a water-droplet screen.  Most of the soundtrack can be found on Don Dorsey's album "Busted".  Lastly, culling from le crème de la crème of French Romantic and Contemporary classical music, Impressions de France ranks as among the best soundtracks to be found anywhere in Epcot.

Mouse Lounge -- Season 06 -- Episode 08 -- December 21, 2011

Wed, 21 Dec 2011 22:24:03 +0000

(((HEADPHONES STRONGLY RECOMMENDED)))

This episode, the Mouse Lounge gets in the Christmas spirit, Disney style

First, in From the Vault, we dust off an old radio recording of Walt and his gang of cartoon characters circa 1934.  You’ve never heard Donald Duck more irascible or the Three Little Pigs repressible, despite the Big Bad Wolf’s insistence that they, come over for dinner.  My wife was shocked to hear this sequence, commenting, “I’m so used to hearing Walt when he was older and had smoked for so many years.  I can believe this voice could be Mickey Mouse.  He was a tenor when he was a young man!”  Indeed he was.

Next, we journey to the Disney properties and take in live performances.  You’ll go into the now long gone Adventurers Club, visit Yehaa Bob, hear the Daper Dans, DCA’s Miner 49’ers, The Jambalaya Jazz Band, and Billy Hill and the Hillbillies.

Then, we take a spot in the shadow between the Matterhorn and Sleeping Beauty Castle to watch, A Christmas Fantasy Parade.  This is a special Mouse Lounge Mix.

Finally, as has become a Christmas tradition on the Mouse Lounge, I’ll play for you some of my personal Christmas favorites.  They may not be Disney, but they’re sure to get you into the spirit of the season!

And now, ladies and gentlemen, the tree is trimmed, the egg nog is out, and there’s a warm fire in the fireplace.  Sit back and enjoy Mouse Lounge Christmas tidings…

Mouse Lounge -- Season 06 -- Episode 07 -- December 8, 2011

Fri, 09 Dec 2011 01:30:00 +0000

(((HEADPHONES STRONGLY RECOMMENDED)))

This episode, the Mouse Lounge gets electrified!

I recently announced that I will be blogging for The Disney Driven Life.  The focus of my articles will be on Disney music, from the films, parks, Walt Disney Records, and even those great 78s that preceded the formation of Disneyland records in 1955.

Of course I began planning my articles right away, and in doing so remembered I had produced a gem of a mini documentary nearly five years ago when I was living in Colorado.  I looked up the show it came from and dragged it out of digital mothballs.  Back then I believe the Mouse Lounge had two listeners, and I was one of them.

So, it pleases me greatly, now that the show has grown and matured to at least a half dozen DFs with positively nothing else better to do, to bring you, The Musical History of the Main Street Electrical Parade.  You’ll learn the evolution of electronic music and along the way meet such luminaries as Bob Moog, Don Dorsey, Rick Wakeman, and Jean-Jacque Perrey (composer of the familiar Baroque Hoedown) and hear the brilliant music of Raymond Scott, Wendy Carlos, Yes, The Beau Hunks, Carl Stalling.

I’ll close the show with what is arguably the best iteration, and certainly most difficult to find of the parade, Tokyo Disneyland’s, “Dreamlights.”  This track does not contain character voices, to better be able to take in the marvelous music!

Mouse Lounge -- Season 06 -- Episode 06 -- November 22, 2011

Wed, 23 Nov 2011 01:30:00 +0000

This week, the Mouse Lounge goes from Jungle to Jungle!  First, Liana and I go Behind the Mickey Bar to discuss Jungle Book, the film then we chat about the Jungle Cruise, the attraction.  Then, from BBC Radio, Phil Jupitus gets down to the Bare Necessities with the last of his five part series on the work of Walt Disney, in Disnified.  Next, in From the Vault: Most fans of Disney animated features have seen the Jungle Book and remember how it ends, with Baghera and Baloo the Bear dancing into the sunset.  But!  On Disneyland’s Little Long Playing record, “More Jungle Book” your story reader, Robie Lester tells you the epilogue of the story.   The Jungle Book just wouldn’t be the favorite it has become without the songs that run throughout the film.  The Sherman Brothers talk about how Walt got them involved in the show and the songs they wrote… and the ones they didn’t!  Most fans can’t imagine Jungle Book, or for that matter The Aristocats or Robin Hood without the remarkable, indelible voice of Phil Harris.  Learn about this bandleader, comedian, radio and film star in this Mouse Lounge Mini Documentary.  Each show we present a high definition ride-through from a Disney Park East or a Disney Park West.    Enjoy this experience down the rivers of the world in the Magic Kingdom’s Jungle Cruise.  We close the show, first with a rare duet.  From Disney’s Wonderful World of Color 25th Anniversary special, Phil Harris is joined by Scatman Caruthers for a medley only this duo could sing.  We wrap things up with Harry Connick Jr.’s  swingin’ arrangement of the Bare Necessities.[...]

Mouse Lounge -- Season 06 -- Episode 05 -- November 02, 2011

Thu, 03 Nov 2011 05:51:10 +0000

(((HEADPHONES STRONGLY RECOMMENDED)))

This week, the Mouse Lounge plunges into the briar patch!

First, Liana and I go Behind the Mickey Bar and discuss the film and the controversy that surrounds it.  Be sure to login to the Mouse Lounge Blog at mouselounge.com and read my piece about the issue.

Next, we go in to the Disney Vault.  Song of the South hasn’t been on the big screen in over 25 years, and has never been released on home video in the U.S.  As a result, an entire generation has never seen Disney’s take on the Joel Chandler Harris stories and the exquisite performance of James Baskett, who utterly inhabited the role of Uncle Remus.   We first dust off a delightful 1946 five-minute promo of the film featuring composer Johnny Mercer, Walt Disney, and the… uh… unflappable… Donald Duck.

Then I’ll tell you the tale of Song of the South with clips from the original film.  It certainly doesn’t replace watching it, but if you’ve loved Splash Mountain for more than two decades but still don’t necessarily understand the narrative, this should help a lot!

Then, go behind the curtain and learn what it took to bring Song of the South to the Silver

Screen.  Each show we present a high definition ride-through from a Disney Park East or a Disney Park West.  Enjoy a ride through down Chickapin Hill into the Briar Patch on Splash Mountain in the Magic Kingdom.

We close the show with popular music covers from the picture.  First, Satchmo himself brings his unique style to Zip-a-dee-doo-dah.  Not to be out done, listen to Rosemary Clooney with her rendition of Everybody Has a Laughing Place!  Next, Walt Disney and Johnny Mercer introducing June Hutton of the Pied Pipers who performs, Sooner or Later.  We’ll wrap up the show with Uncle Remus himself performing, Uncle Remus Says.

Mouse Lounge -- Season 06 -- Episode 04 -- October 12, 2011

Thu, 13 Oct 2011 00:30:00 +0000

(((HEADPHONES STRONGLY RECOMMENDED))) This episode, the Mouse Lounge pillages and plunders with Pirates, parties with curious  in a private club, and other alliterative nonsense! From the World of Color:  Walt gives Disneyland Ambassador Julie Ream a tour of the future New Orleans Square and we’re there on a drizzly morning on opening day of Pirates of the Caribbean!  In from the Vault we sample a clip from a classic Disney film, short, television or radio program, Disneyland Record.   This episode we pull out a 1966 vinyl classic, as Thurl Ravenscroft narrates the story of Pirates of the Caribbean. Each show we present a high definition ride-through from a Disney Park East or a Disney Park West.  With all due respect to Pirates-lite in the Magic Kingdom, this show we features the original and arguably the best.   Next, we move from Pirates to Epicureans as I share with you the origins of the mysterious Club 33, which opened to members only at the same time as Pirates.  Then join Liana and I as we discuss our experiences dining, in the exclusive club.  Also, be sure to login to the Mouse Lounge Galleries page for a photographic tour of the Club! We close the show with a pair of piratical tracks.  First, live from the Magic Kingdom’s Pirate and Princes Party; enjoy the sea chanty, Blow, Ye Winds by the Rusty Cutlass Band.  Finally have a listen to what has become the defacto Pirate theme, Klaus Badelt’s, He’s a Pirate as performed by David Garrett live at the Tempodrom in Berlin with the finale mixed with the dynamic original score we all adore!

Mouse Lounge -- Season 06 -- Episode 03 -- September 19, 2011

Tue, 20 Sep 2011 00:23:00 +0000

(((HEADPHONES STRONGLY RECOMMENDED))) Episode theme: Journey Into Imagination   Before we delve into this episode’s theme, we take in part three of three of a very special feature.  Back in 2006, yours truly sat in on a Walt Disney World Audition Workshop.  It was an intense couple of hours of enthusiastic performers needing a reality check and casting directors there to provide it, all in the spirit of better preparing those auditioning so they could earn one of the coveted performing spots.  Whether you’re a performer a not, enjoy an inside glimpse at what it takes to audition for Walt Disney World.   Next I’ll introduce you to Shawn and Katie, hosts of the popular, Waltcast.    Next, learn about the history and rumored future of one of Epcot’s most beloved and missed attractions, Journey Into Imagination.   Next, from D23s Destination D in May 2011, composer Richard Sherman is joined by none other than the Dreamfinder from the original Journey Into Imagination for a delightful sing-along.   Then, from the Attraction Audio Archive we enjoy the full ride-through of the original Journey Into Imagination! In from the Vault we sample a clip from a classic Disney film, short, television or radio program, Disneyland Record.   On Epcot Center’s opening day, October 1st1982, NBC Today Show hosted a live special covering opening day.  Bryant Gumble was on hand to interview the one and only Dreamfinder, portrayed by Ron Schneider, and Imagineer Barry Braverman!   Each show we present a high definition ride-through from a Disney Park East or a Disney Park West.   This week take in a live version of the current version, Journey Into Imagination with Figment.  I think you’ll find the comparison rather striking… and maybe just a little disappointing.  But don’t take my word for it! Listen for yourself then join me on Facebook and post your comments!   We close the show with song played in the other Imagination Pavilion attraction on opening day, the 3D film, Magic Journeys.  Like One Little Spark, Makin’ Memories and Magic Journeys were written by the Sherman Brothers.  Makin’ Memories was part of the pre-show to the film, and Magic Journeys served as the films theme music.   Gary Chambers (805) 270-5785 The Mouse Lounge http://www.mouselounge.com Subscribe to our write a review about the Mouse Lounge Podcast: http://phobos.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewPodcast?id=180696323     The Mouse Lounge is a fan-based podcast and is not affiliated with the Walt Disney Company or its subsidiaries.  Non factual statements made by the Mouse Lounge hosts, Gary Chambers and his guests are their current opinions only and are subject to change without notice.  All copyrighted material used with permission or under the Fair Use Doctrine in Section 107 of the United States Copyright Act.  Although the information in this program is believed to be reliable, Mr. Chambers, and Mouselounge.com do not make any representations or warranties as to its accuracy or completeness, nor do they assess, verify or guarantee the suitability of information.   [...]

Mouse Lounge -- Season 06 -- Episode 02 -- September 04, 2011

Mon, 05 Sep 2011 00:00:00 +0000

(((HEADPHONES STRONGLY RECOMMENDED)))

This week, the Mouse Lounge celebrates Labor Day with a special labor of love, a glide-thru Disneyland.

Now allow me to take just a moment to explain the Glide-thru.  Most of us have heard many different live recordings of attractions and shows from the parks.  Often, these include dialogue with the host and his guests.  

The Glide-thru allows you to take in the soundscape with only the sounds of the park, as you would hear it if you were somehow floating through the park by yourself, allowing you to take in details of the ambience.  So far that may sound somewhat familiar, but the Glide-thru is crafted such so you will also enjoy a show, attraction, or live music performance during the journey, always something special.  

You never know where you’ll start, or where you’ll end up, but the Glide-thru will always be entertaining as you float through the parks on the breeze of the stereoscape.

What you are about to hear was recorded Saturday, September 3rd, Labor Day weekend 2011.  Imagine it’s the last hurrah of summer in the mid afternoon.  The park is full of happy guests on a beautiful summer day.  There’s an electric energy in the air you can actually hear.

Mouse Lounge -- Season 06 -- Episode 01 -- August 28, 2011

Sun, 28 Aug 2011 04:31:23 +0000

(((HEADPHONES STRONGLY RECOMMENDED))) This week, the Mouse Lounge explores what its like to have very little brain, which honestly isn’t all that different from most days. Before we delve into this episode’s theme of stuff n fluff, we take in part two of three of a very special feature.  Back in 2006, yours truly sat in on a Walt Disney World Audition Workshop.  It was an intense couple of hours of enthusiastic performers needing a reality check and casting directors there to provide it, all in the spirit of better preparing those auditioning so they could earn one of the coveted performing spots.  Whether you’re a performer a not, enjoy an inside glimpse at what it takes to audition for Walt Disney World. In From the Vault we sample a clip from a classic Disney film, short, television or radio program, or Disneyland Record.  Before Disney made their now classic films, several audio interpretations of the Pooh stories were made.  Some thirty years after the book’s initial publication, RCA’s Little Nipper series released an Upside Down record, which had a story on each side.  We feature here, Winnie the Pooh and the Heffalump, narrated by Jimmy Stewart.  Be sure to go to the Mouse Lounge multimedia page to listen to the flip side of the record, Winnie the Pooh and Tigger. Next, from the Disney DVD, the Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, have a listen to a brief history of Winnie the Pooh. Next, sidle up to the Mickey Bar, as Liana and I fling a little Pooh of our own.  I even sing a few bars.  Don’t be scared. Meet Paul Winchell.   Listen to the voice of Tigger tell his story in this wonderful interview with BBC Scotland in 2004, just a year before Paul passed away.   From the Disneyland Attraction Archives:  In 2005, Disney released the comprehensive, Musical History of Disneyland.  Among the tracks are two absolute gems I’ll play for you here:  The queue music, When the Rain Rain Rain came Down Down Down, and the attraction music itself, without most of the character vocal tracks and sound effects.   Each show we present a high definition ride-through from a Disney Park East or a Disney Park West.   This week we serve up both versions of Pooh, from Fantasyland in the Magic Kingdom, where many of you think the attraction truly belongs, and back to the West coast in Critter Country.  Listen to the subtle differences between the two.  Which do you prefer, and why?  Be sure to comment on the podcast page on the Mouse Lounge website. We close the show with a duo of Pooh Tracks!  First, from the Walt Disney Records archive collection, the Chieftains perform the title track, Winnie the Pooh.  Then, while not really a Disney tune per se, its hard to separate Winnie the Pooh from one of Kenny Loggins most memorable performances, The Return to Pooh Corner.

Mouse Lounge Unnumbered: The Premiere Episode (Originally aired August 18, 2006)

Fri, 19 Aug 2011 02:00:00 +0000

Today marks the 5th Anniversary of the Mouse Lounge.  While I'm currently in production on another epic show (the first cut was three hours!) I thought I'd drag out of moth balls an episode that hasn't seen the light of day in those five years: the very first episode of the Mouse Lounge.

Listening today, to me it sounds positively painful.  However, it demonstrates how the show began, how many of the original concepts still survive, and how much it has evolved.

The Mouse Lounge thrives as part of the Disney fan culture because of YOU, my listeners.  You have stuck with me through four moves and hardships that have resulted in more than a few sabbaticals.  After five years, I still love what I do, and love the people for whom I do it!

With martini in hand... here's to the next five years!!!

P.S. The artwork included with this episode is that which I scanned from a souvenir notebook I bought in the Magic Kingdom.  It was the art I used until the brilliant Dave Laitinen designed our logo, still in use today!

All the best

Mouse Lounge -- Season 05 -- Episode 20 -- August 5, 2011

Fri, 05 Aug 2011 07:27:14 +0000

(((HEADPHONES STRONGLY RECOMMENDED)))

This week, the Mouse Lounge explores what its like to audition for the Disney Parks and boards a pair of boats… one little, one big.  

Whether you’re a performer a not, enjoy the first of this three part series to get an inside glimpse at what it takes to audition for Walt Disney World.

In From the Vault we sample a clip from a classic Disney film, short, television or radio program, or Disneyland Record.   This week, from Melody Time, we listen to Billy May's Capitol Records classic, Little Toot.

Next climb aboard a much larger vessel and circumnavigate Top Sawyer Island circa 1962.  From Walt Disney’s, World of Color episode, Disneyland After Dark join in on the fun aboard the Mark Twain with Louis Armstrong, the Dapper Dans, and blues legend, Monette Moore.

From the Disneyland Attraction Archives:  Stay aboard the Mark Twain and listen to the narration and soundtrack that echoed through the decks of this classic Disneyland water faring vessel. 

Then, take a musical trip around the Rivers of America in Disneyland with the Main Street Strawhatters performing a full set aboard the Mark Twain.

We close the show with a duo of boat-themed tracks.  First, from the original 1953 Peter Pan soundtrack, a rare Oliver Wallace demo of a song discarded before the film was complete.  Have a listed to, “The Boatswain’s Song. 

Then disembark from the show into Old New Orleans with the classic, “River Boat Shuffle”.

Mouse Lounge -- Season 05 -- Episode 19 -- July 15, 2011

Fri, 15 Jul 2011 07:14:14 +0000

(((HEADPHONES STRONGLY RECOMMENDED))) This week, the Mouse Lounge gets glittered and gowned with the Disney Princesses!   In “Behind the Mickey Bar”, Liana and I sit down and discuss the phenomenon that is the Disney Princess franchise.   In From the Vault we sample a clip from a classic Disney film, short, television or radio program, or Disneyland Record.   From April 1946, during the first re-release to theaters of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, we hear a radio dramatization of the film, with many from the original cast.  This is truly a brilliant time capsule of post war in home entertainment with a wonderful performance by the still very young Adriana Casselotti as Snow White.   From the Walt Disney Archives:  Let’s go back in time and back again, and hear for ourselves the difference sixty years can make as we listen to “Someday My Prince Will Come” from Cinderella and the Seven Dwarfs, and “Almost There” from The Princess and the Frog.  Two princesses, two very different ways of living.   Each show we present a high definition ride-through from a Disney Park East or a Disney Park West.   This week travel through a land of enchantment and stilted narration no teenager could ever do justice on the Storybookland Canal Boats.   We close the show with a pair of unexpected Princess tracks.  The first is If You Can Dream, the first song that was originally written and recorded specifically for the Disney Princess franchise.  It was first released on the album Disney Princess: The Ultimate Song Collection.   The song is sung from the point of view of the first eight official Disney Princesses (though only seven of them actually sing). It has been featured on several Disney music CDs, and its music video is present on nearly every Disney Princess DVD, as either an extra or a Sing-Along, and has been shown numerous times on the Disney Channel. To this day the song still plays on the official Disney Princess website.   Finally, the incomparable Pogo, best known for spinning creative melodies of his own sampling Disney films, has released a new track with the Disney Princesses.  Here now, listen to Bloom… and be sure to log into the multimedia section of Mouselounge.com to watch the extraordinary video!

Mouse Lounge -- Season 05 -- Episode 14 -- June 6, 2011

(((HEADPHONES STRONGLY RECOMMENDED))) This week on the Mouse Lounge, we glimpse into the future, Disney style.   Each week, in From the Vault we sample a clip from a classic Disney film, short, television or radio program, or Disneyland Record.   This week, from 1979 we journey to the future then beyond time, into The Black Hole!   From the Walt Disney Family Museum:  Walt Disney was a filmmaker, a showman, and a brilliant storyteller; but he was also a futurist, way ahead of his time.  Learn how Walt saw the future.  His optimism is positively infectious.   From the Walt Disney Archives:  Leonard Maltin interviews the incomparable Ray Bradbury, getting his thoughts about Walt Disney in this excerpt from the Walt Disney Treasures DVD, Tomorrowland.   Each show we present a high definition ride-through from a Disney Park East or a Disney Park West.   This week we see the future from the perspective of the past, from the turn of the last century into the early eighties when our featured attraction was built.  Learn about the history of, then take a ride on Epcot Center’s beloved and unfortunately extinct, “Horizons.”   We'll close this week’s show with a pair of music tracks.  The first points out exactly how wrong we can be trying to predict the future.  Have a listen to the Computer Song, from Epcot’s gratefully short-lived “Astuter Computer Review.”  Then, we tap into the very heart of Disney optimism, with Epcot’s now retired parade anthem, “Celebrate the Future”.

(((HEADPHONES STRONGLY RECOMMENDED)))


Each week, in From the Vault we sample a clip from a classic Disney film, short, television or radio program, or Disneyland Record.   This week we present the 1982 read-along of, “The Story of Tron”. 


For more than four years, The Mouse Lounge has been entertaining listeners with an informative and irreverent view of Disney.  On the "Extinct Attractions Club Podcast" Liana lent her depth of knowledge and sense of humor, quickly becoming a fan favorite. We are thrilled and excited to announce "Liana Behind the Mickey Bar" as a regular feature. Belly to the bar with us, as we discuss the world of TRON!


From the Walt Disney Archives:  Direct from the archives, learn about the history of the sometimes maligned but nonetheless visually groundbreaking picture, TRON.  Also, in honor of Mickey’s Birthday, who turns 82 the day this episode was released, we dig really deep into the stacks and pull out a 78 from 1937.  Have a listen to “Billy Murray’s, “Mickey’s Birthday Party.”


Each week we present a high definition ride-through from a Disney Park East or a Disney Park West.   This week we continue our tech tour with a trip in Tomorrowland on Buzz Lightyear’s Astro Blasters!


 We'll close this week’s show a pair of tracks that produce the thunderous pulse that is the sound track for ElecTRONica’s Laserman!

We'll close this week’s show with a trio of unique interpretations of Sammy Fain’s, “Once Upon a Dream”.  First, from the six disc superset, “A Musical History of Disneyland” we board King Arthur’s Carousel and hear a fantastic arrangement for Stinson Band Organ.  Then, we’ll delve in a bit of Disney Bubble Gum Pop and hear Emily Osments auto-tuned performance.  And just about when three minutes of Disneymania convinces you there’s no such thing as talent, have a listen to the original Aurora and Prince Philip, Mary Costa & Bill Shirley from the re-mastered soundtrack.

Enjoy!

"Shermania!"
(((HEADPHONES RECOMMENDED)))
Produced as a tribute to Disney Legends, the Sherman Brothers, "Shermania!" the film began life first as a song.  Robert and Richard Sherman's Father, Tin Pan Alley tune-smith, Al Sherman, told his boys to follow the three S’s when writing songs: make them singable, simple, and sincere.
With that ideal as inspiration, composer Jerry Ranger and author/lyricist Cynthia Ferrell co-wrote the song, "Singable, Simple, and Sincere".  The song is performed by Tess Ferrell, now lead singer in "Big Band Beat," a broadway-style show on the American Waterfront at Tokyo DisneySea.
The film, now titled, "Shermania!" was shot over the course of two days in August 2010 in Los Angeles and Thousand Oaks, California, under the direction of Cynthia Ferrell & Brian McDonald and stars Tess Ferrell and Jerry Ranger.  
Other credits include:
Cinematographer: Tim Carr
Editors: Brian McDonald, Chuck Lewis & Nick Brosco
Boom operator and production support: Gary Chambers
Script supervisor: Nancy Friedman
Musical arrangement & performance: David Vasquez
Recorded, mixed, & mastered: Jeff Lewis at Moonlight Studios, Los Angeles
With special thanks to Gregg Sherman
The film is distributed by the Mouse Lounge Podcast
Enjoy!

(((HEADPHONES STRONGLY RECOMMENDED)))

In this episode, the Mouse Lounge presents Disney’s fascination with the automobile, or cars… to you and me.

From the Walt Disney Archives:  At the 1964-1965 New York World’s Fair, Ford presented Disney's "The Magic Skyway," the second most popular exhibit at the fair, using Ford cars in an early prototype of the Omnimover system to move the audience through scenes featuring life-sized audio-animatronic dinosaurs and cavemen.   Walt narrates this forgotten attraction of Yesterdayland.

Each week, in From the Vault we sample a clip from a classic Disney film, short, television or radio program, or Disneyland Record.   This week, we take a ride back in time to June 6, 1952 for the release of Susie the Little Blue Coupe.  The incomparable Sterling Holloway narrates.

Each week we present a high definition ride-through from a Disney Park East or a Disney Park West.   This week, we double dipstick.  First into Yesterdayland for a  compilation track from Disneyland’s Autopia.  Then we motor back east for a ride on Test Track in Epcot.

We'll close this week’s show with a replay of the Mouse Lounge Mix of John Mayer’s Route 66 from Disney/Pixar’s Cars.

Sat, 10 Jul 2010 00:13:30 +0000

(((HEADPHONES STRONGLY RECOMMENDED))) In this episode, the Mouse Lounge takes in a languorous, lazy summer day…at 55 miles per hour of course.  Each week, in From the Vault we sample a clip from a classic Disney film, short, television or radio program, or Disneyland Record.   In 1963 Walt Disney Productions released the feature film Summer Magic, starring Hayley Mills, Burl Ives, and Dorothy McGuire in a story about a Boston widow and her children taking up residence in a small town in Maine. The film was based on the book "Mother Carey's Chickens" by Kate Douglas Wiggin.  The film was Mills' fourth of six films for Disney, and the young actress received a Golden Globe nomination for her work.  The soundtrack from the picture yielded some very good songs, including the Richard Sherman composition, the Ugly Bug Ball; which went on to be a popular song that year.  Two other cuts on the record however will be of interest to Disney Park fans.  Flitterin’ and Beautiful Beulah can often be heard in instrumental form as you stroll down Main Street USA.  Now have a listen to these familiar melodies, complete with their original lyrics.  From the Walt Disney Archives:  On the evening of June 25th, D23 members gathered at the Walt Disney Theater on the Disney Studios lot in Burbank to witness a once in a lifetime event.  Dave Smith, Chief Archivist for the Walt Disney Company celebrated his and it’s 40th anniversary!  While tinged with just the slightest bit of sadness with the fresh reveal Dave will be retiring in October; the evening was a celebration in the truest sense.  Disney luminaries such as CEO Bob Iger, composer Richard Sherman, and Imagineers Tony Baxter and Bob Gurr, were in attendance.  Leonard Maltin interviewed Dave during the occasion.  We present the entirety of that interview here.  Each week we present a high definition ride-through from a Disney Park East or a Disney Park West.   This week, summer isn’t complete without the rush of a roller coaster and fireworks.  In DCA’s Paradise Pier, take a ride on California Screamin’!  Then, let’s cross the esplanade and take in Magical!, Disney’s Nightastic fireworks spectacular.  This is a Mouse Lounge Re-mix, so should be extra fun with the sounds of a very enthusiastic summer crowd in the background.  We'll close this week’s show with audio from an attraction you can only see online.  You’ll hear more about it coming up.  Have a listen to the World of Color Roadshow.  The Mouse Lounge is a fan-based podcast and is not affiliated with the Walt Disney Company or its subsidiaries.  Non factual statements made by the Mouse Lounge h[...]

(((HEADPHONES STRONGLY RECOMMENDED))) In this episode, the Mouse Lounge salutes America… Disney style!  Each week, in From the Vault we sample a clip from a classic Disney film, short, television or radio program, or Disneyland Record.  This week, from the 1980 Disneyland Record #2511 “Yankee Doodle Mickey” have a listen to Mickey and the gang performing You’re a Grand Old Flag and the Armed Forces Melody.  Listen carefully, that’s Wayne Allwine as Mickey, three years before he officially inherited the roll from Jimmy McDonald in Mickey’s Christmas Carol.   Yankee Doodle Mickey was given the CD treatment in 2002.  While several songs from the original LP were removed, at the time The American Adventure hosted an a capella group called, “American  Vybe.”  Their studio rendition of America the Beautiful is featured here.  From the Walt Disney Archives:  In 2004 Leonard Maltin met with John Hench, at the time, Disney’s longest-term employee, and discusses how after the attack on Pearl Harbor, the Burbank studio was instantly turned into a base for the military.  Then, Walt's nephew recalls his boyhood memories of the Disney studio during the war and also touches on the Disney insignia's popularity and his own method of promoting Victory Through Air Power.  Each week we present a high definition ride-through from a Disney Park East or a Disney Park West.   This week we look into the making of and then take in the Magic Kingdom’s Hall of Presidents.  With new narration by Morgan Freeman and a short speech by President Obama, this iteration of the attraction in a class by itself.  We'll close this week’s show with a concert in the park performed by the Disneyland Band.  Enjoy, “Music in America” followed by the Flag Retreat Ceremony.  Please keep your head, arms, feet and legs inside the podcast at all times.  Driver you’re clear!  Let's reflect on this holiday by heeding Walt Disney, who spoke the following words at the Metropolitan Opera house in New York City in 1941, as America tumbled into World War II:  "Tomorrow will be better. For as long as America keeps alive the ideas of freedom and a better life, all men will want to be free and share our way of life. I thank God and America for the right to live and raise my family under the flag of tolerance, democracy and freedom."  The Mouse Lounge is a fan-based podcast and is not affiliated with the Walt Disney Company or its subsidiaries.  Non factual statements made by the Mouse Lounge hosts, Gary Chambers and his guests are their current opinions only and are subject to change without notice.  All c[...]

In this episode of the Mouse Lounge, DCA becomes alight with magic and music with the first public performance of "World of Color!  This audio was captured during the June 11 9:00pm show. This post also marks. after a six month hiatus, the return of The Mouse Lounge Podcast.  (If you think of the Mouse Lounge kinda like how "LOST" was aired, maybe it won't piss you off as much.)   ;)

In this episode of the Mouse Lounge, we trip the Christmas lights fantastic and over a few toys in the process.


Each week, in From the Vault we sample a clip from a classic Disney film, short, television or radio program, or Disneyland Record. This week from a dusty box of LPs we drop the needle on some classic vinyl. From Disneyland Records catalog ST3913, enjoy Walt Disneys Babes in Toyland!


From the Walt Disney Archives: A young Walt Disney performs as Mickey and himself in 1934s Heinz Hall of Fame Christmas Stocking.


Each week we present a high definition ride-through from a Disney Park East or a Disney Park West. This week, not so much a ride-through, but a musical trip through the holiday season, with the Disneyland Band in their annual Christmas Concert. I am told the band will improve its selection of singers from the audience in the coming year.


We close this week’s show with four of my favorite holiday tunes. They may not be Disney, but they’re special to me and hope they will be to you too.


Enjoy!

Fri, 30 Oct 2009 04:51:00 +0000

(((HEADPHONES STRONGLY RECOMMENDED))) Call or text with your comments!!! New number -> (805) 270-5785 In this episode of the Mouse Lounge, celebrate 70 years with the one that started it all, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. From the Walt Disney Family Museum: In a darkened theater filled to overflowing at the D23 Expo, I had the honor of sitting in the presence of true Disney legends and experts. Producer, Don Hahn moderates a panel discussion about Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. In attendance were animator, Andreas Deja, who invoked life into Scar in the Lion King, and Gaston in Beauty and the Beast, Eric Goldberg, responsible for animating the Genie in Aladdin, and directing the jaw dropping Rhapsody in Blue and hilarious Flamingo with a Yo Yo sequences in Fantasia 2000, Disney historian and author, J.B. Kaufman, animation historian and prolific writer, Charles Solomon, and special guest, looking dazzling at 90 years young, Marge Gower Champion, the live action model for Snow White. Each week, in From the Vault we sample a clip from a classic Disney film, short, television or radio program, or Disneyland Record. This week we serve up a triple feature. At the beginning of 1938, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs was taking America by storm. By using the radio medium, Walt was able to stoke the fire of his marketing machine promoting Snow White; while at the same time, entertaining a national audience. On January 2nd 1938, a radio episode of The Mickey Mouse Theater hit the airwaves, coupling elements from the picture with other famous Disney characters. Pay particular attention as Walt himself effortlessly goes from his natural speaking voice into character as Mickey. Next, scoop up slices of film from the cutting room floor and wonder, what if? Have a listen right here to the marvelous but deleted soup sequence from Snow White. Each week we present a high definition ride-through from a Disney Park East or a Disney Park West. This week, enjoy a one of a kind compare and contrast as you hear back to back versions of Snow Whites Scary Adventures, first in on the west coast in Disneyland then in Walt Disney Worlds Magic Kingdom. There are striking differences between the two. Which do you like better? We close the show with unique takes from the soundtrack. First from the newly remastered original soundtrack, the infectious Silly Song; then Satchmo Armstrong teaches you how to Whistle While You Work, and [...]

Also, a full docket of Disney News from departments Entertainment, Theme Parks East, Theme Parks West, and Business. From the Walt Disney Family Museum: Listen as Walt describes the sights and sounds of the lands in Latin America. Excerpted from Walt Disney -- The Triumph of American Imagination: By 1940, the Walt Disney Studio had moved from Hyperion Avenue to the new Burbank studio still used today. The financial windfall of Snow White was now a distant memory and Walt had two financial failures on his hands, Fantasia and Pinocchio. The studio had been overrun by union organizers and production on Bambi was slowed to a crawl. Those crossing the picket line were working on Dumbo, fronted as a picture they could just knock out quickly. While the lawyers were settling with striking workers in 1941, Walt needed to get away and find other projects. He found it in a working trip to South America. Learn about what prompted this material gathering tour of South America and the two unusual movies that resulted from it. Each week, in From the Vault we sample a clip from a classic Disney film, short, television or radio program, or Disneyland Record. This week a very special mix from three films featuring Donald and Joe Carioca. From 1944s, The Three Caballeros we meet Ya Ya selling cookies (and a little more) in the brilliant Baia sequence from the film. Also from 1944 on Decca Records A-373 Charles Wolcott and his Orchestra perform the title track, sung by Ray Gilbert. Then, from 1948s Melody Time and 1943s Saludos Amigos, Joe gives Donald a lesson in the Rhythm of the Samba! Each week we present a high definition ride-through from a Disney Park East or a Disney Park West. This week, from the Mexico Pavilion in Epcot we have a listen to Mariachi Cobre and take a ride on El Rio del Tiempo. We close the show with a trio of interpretations of Tico Tico, from the Andrews Sisters, the Charles Wolcott Orchestra, and Don Swan and his Orchestra Enjoy!

The first run of Mickey and the Beanstalk is introduced and narrated by Edgar Bergen and Charlie McCarthy. After we begin the story we’ll rewind the tape and hear the setup again, only this time with narration offered up by Ludwig von Drake and his Bootle Bettle, Herman from a 1963 episode of The Wonderful World of Color. Lastly you’ll hear our tale as told on a Disneyland Original Little Long Playing Record and your story reader, Lois Lane (and no, I am not making that up!) From the Disney Family Museum: Listen to Walt share his thoughts about critic accusations of being corny or producing picture postcard art. Each week we present a high definition ride-through from a Disney Park East or a Disney Park West. This week from the hub in Disneyland take in a Mouse Lounge Mega Mix of Remember, Dreams Come True. We'll close this week’s show with a trio of audio features. First, we’ll take in the trailer of Disney Pictures upcoming fall release, Bolt. We’ll segue into one of the cuts from the Bolt Soundtrack, a killer remix of Elvis Presley’s, A Little Less Conversation. We’ll close the show with the rousing, True to Your Heart from Mulan.

Mouse Lounge Supplemental: Spaceship Earth Preview (December 9, 2007)

Mon, 10 Dec 2007 05:28:00 +0000


Season Two kicks off with a preview of the all new Spaceship Earth from Epcot.

It took three days and nearly six hours of diligent waiting during Mousefest for this recording to become a reality.  From my point of view Disney brass has made it very clear to cast members that they are not to divulge any details as to when the attraction will preview or for how long.  In truth, they may not know!  This evening (Sunday) the attraction walls were well staffed with low level CMs answering the incessant question.

VIPs clearly are being allowed privileged sneak peeks and guests are being brought in on a pacify the masses basis. 

The attraction is not yet finished.  Perhaps Disney is relying upon the feedback from podcasts such as this to learn which direction to take in order to put the finishing touches on the work.  As focus groups and preview audiences are the norm in motion pictures it would make sense that the Mouse would like to know what you think of the current incarnation of this work in progress.

Log onto the DPN Forums and let your opinion be heard!

Also on the show, a full docket of Disney News from our departments Entertainment, Theme Parks East, Theme Parks West, and Business. Each week, in From the Vault we sample a clip from a classic Disney film, short, television or radio program, or Disneyland Record: This week we listen to a very faithful audio rendition of the probably NOT so faithful Disney animated film version of Kenneth Graham's, The Wind and the Willows.

This album was produced in 1949 on Capitol Records. Be sure to check this week’s show notes for more details and images of the set. Each week we present a high definition ride-through from a Disney Park East and a Disney Park West.

Mouse Lounge -- Epsiode 024 -- April 20, 2007

Sat, 21 Apr 2007 03:45:00 +0000

(((HEADPHONES STRONGLY RECOMMENDED))) RATED PG FOR MILD ADULT LANGUAGE This week in the Mouse Lounge: A full docket of Disney News from our departments Entertainment (including a GREAT guest correspondent!), Theme Parks East, Theme Parks West, and Business. Each week in From the Vault we sample a clip from a classic Disney film, short, television or radio program, or Disneyland Record. Walt may not have been an auto aficionado; practical transportation (with the notable exception of a backyard train) was his moteris operandi. He did realize however that car junkies and other addled nitwits that occupy the road make for some great comedic and educational material. From 1950, we take in the entirety of Motor Mania. Now like several weeks ago with the short, Reason and Emotion this cartoon got the Ludwig von Drake treatment for the Wonderful World of Color anthology series. The difference however, is that the former was a wartime cartoon, and was edited for content when it was presented to television audiences. Motor Mania on the other hand is plain old Goofy silliness and the narration remains intact. That said, the delivery of the narration is much funnier with Ludwig, so that version is featured on the podcast. Next up you'll hear a segment from the classic 1970 Dad, Can I Borrow the Car? If you’re at a computer, log into the multimedia section of mouselounge.com where I have posted the script from this sequence and screen captures as well. Plus, without cheating (Google or Wiki, etc.), see if you can pick out who's narrating the short and who's voice is in the training film sequence. If you do get it, it'll be just barely. Ea[...]

Mouse Lounge -- Epsiode 023 -- March 19, 2007

Mon, 19 Mar 2007 20:25:00 +0000

(((HEADPHONES STRONGLY RECOMMENDED))) This week in the Mouse Lounge: A full docket of Disney News from our departments Entertainment, Theme Parks East, Theme Parks West, and Business Each week in From the Vault we sample a clip from a classic Disney film, short, television or radio program, or Disneyland Record. It has long been thought that the Mickey Mouse Club lead-ins recorded in 1955 were the last time Walt ever voiced the famous mouse. With a recent discovery in the Disney Archive, that is no longer true. Presented in 1962 at Radio City Music Hall in New York City, Walt filmed a special Cinemascope presentation of, Disneyland USA, interacting with a costumed Mickey Mouse performing live on the stage. The voice of Mickey is irrefutably Walt. Each week we present a high definition ride-through from a Disney Park East and a Disney Park West. This week in Disney Parks West, we present our featured attraction; Pirates of the Caribbean recorded in January 2007. From the sounds of bayou water lapping up against the side of the boat, to the rattling percussion of cannon fire; don your headphones and do not miss this exceptional ride-through. From the Disney Family Museum; Listen to Walt as he talks about his relationship with the new medium of television and how that leads to the beginnings of Disneyland. Then hear Diane Disney Miller as describes to Leonard Maltin those days when she was very young and she and her sister Sharon used to spend Saturday afternoons with their famous father at the then new Disney Studios in Burbank. From Disney Parks East, we head over to the Magic Kingdoms Liberty Square, just[...]

Mouse Lounge Supplemental: An Evening in World Showcase

Sat, 10 Mar 2007 08:17:00 +0000

(((HEADPHONES STRONGLY RECOMMENDED))) I consider this show supplemental because it doesn't even remotely resemble the Mouse Lounge format. In this departure, we take a clockwise musical tour of most countries in World Showcase, sampling live music from each. I have selected what I consider to be the best from each set recorded last week. Mexico: Mariachi Cobre All the musicians in this group are outstanding vocalists. The soloists in this number are fantastic examples. Norway: Spellmans Gledge While the audience wasnt exactly enthusiastic, there is no shortage of musicianship in this group. The double-bass player was using a decrepit old thing that sounded wonderful! China: Si Xian Anne plays a modern 21-string floor standing harp. About the size of a pedal steel guitar with both nylon and steel strings, this instrument sings in her capable hands. Germany: Oktoberfest Musikanten What can I say...Uber Oom-pa-pa! America: The Voices of Liberty Among the finest a capella groups I have yet heard, under the dome they sound absolutely spectacular! Japan: Matsuriza Taiko drumming that takes your breath away. See this fine group live whenever possible. Morocco: Mo Rockin Ethnic Moroccin rhythms fused with jazz and rock to create a sound that is utterly unique. This track features an absolutely incredible electric bass solo. The lead vocals are a bit hot (saturated) in this recording but the instrumentals more than make up for the technical shortfall. Listen for a foreshadowing to the next group, which is... United Kingdom: British Invasion Pure[...]

Not to be outdone, Riders in the Sky pay homage to Woody and his crew; from Toy Story 2, enjoy Woodys Roundup Medley. Each week we present a high definition ride-through from a Disney Park East and a Disney Park West. This week in Disney Parks West, we take a trip into the past aboard the Mine Train through Natures Wonderland.

We start out with, All the Cats Join In, then Benny Goodmans After Youve Gone, both from Make Mine Music.

This week in Disney Parks West, we slide all the way to the back of the park on a dead night in Toontown and experience, Roger Rabbits Cartoon Spin. The queue (not the queue line!) was almost empty so listen carefully for the story setup as we wander through. From the Disney Family Museum; With Disneyland now running smoothly, Walt sought new challenges and found it when Pamela Travers finally agreed to let Walt film her classic tale of Mary Poppins. From Disney Parks East, we take a classic adventure aboard, The Jungle Cruise. With a hysterically pithy skipper on board, this trip around the rivers of the world is a real hoot!

Nor was it spared the effects of the growing conflict in Europe which would soon hit very, very close to home. From Disney Parks East, we cross the lagoon in Epcot and disembark in the America Pavilion where we hear the Fife and Drum Corp march into the square. We then go inside the Rotunda and hear the Voices of Liberty perform a rousing rendition of The Star Spangled Banner.

Each week, in From the Vault we sample a clip from a classic Disney film, short, television or radio program, or Disneyland Record. This week we feature a new segment, Revisionist Disney. Fans of the show, The Wonderful World of Color may remember a classic cartoon within a 1962 episode called, Ducking Disaster with Donald Duck. The show featured Ludwig von Drake illustrating what can happen when you let emotion run away with your common sense. What fans of the series may not know is this segment is derived from a 1943 Academy Award nominated short short called Reason and Emotion. Back during WWII this cartoon had a completely different connotation, as emotion was largely thought to be the lynch pin through which Hitler could wield his evil influence. Join us in the Mouse Lounge as we compare the similarities and differences in the 1943 versus the 1962 audio tracks. I think youll then understand why this segment is called, Revisionist Disney. Logon to http://www.mouselounge.com/multimedia.html to follow along with the script. Each week we present a high definition ride-through from a Disney Park East and a Disney Park West.
