Both Bev and Taren are out sick, so it’s just Jason and Terrence running the show. We bring on Jeremy from SpectroRadio on early and ask him to sit in on our Feedback segment, which he does. Then we run right into SpectroTime as Jeremy teaches us about the history of the music of the song everybody loves to hate on … “It’s a Small World”.
Then we get our guest on the line, James Bohn, author of the book “Music in Disney’s Animated Features”. We loved this book, and James does a great job at digging deep into the musical past of the early days of Disney and how music came to play such a pivotal role in the company’s future. We had a lot of fun talking with James, and can’t recommend his book enough. You can grab it from our Amazon link if you want to support us at the same time.
Then it’s some Disney News, Fact of the Show, and that’s it.
See you in the Parks!
