Happy New Year everyone! We’re back with episode 70 of Sideshow & Tell, the first SAT of 2017, live, unscripted and unedited with Ian Crabb and Will Dodson, your weekly mini newscast where your hosts bring you all the latest info on composers, film music, and movie news! This week the producers of Sideshow start by breaking down their favourite and least favourite films of 2016, then later discuss the latest film and television music releases including A Monster Calls by Fernando Velázquez, from Back Lot Music and Quarter Records, Sherlock Series 4 by David Arnold and Michael Price, from Silva Screen, and finally, The Fly by Howard Shore, by Varèse Sarabande. Ian also brings us the news that composer Marco Beltrami is to score James Mangold’s upcoming ‘Logan’, and delivers his Home Video Pick! The duo finish off SAT70 with their Pick of the Week, from composer Mark Mancina, and the amazing La-La Land Records!
Welcome foolish mortals to episode 9 of Mouse Music, the podcast celebrating the music and history of the Walt Disney Company! Here at Sideshow HQ we don’t take our Halloween decorations down until December 1st at the earliest, so today we are finally going to talk about the greatest theme park attraction in all the land, The Haunted Mansion!
Joining ghost host Will Dodson and his macabre partner in crime Wicked Wendell Jones in the dimly lit and cobweb-strewn Sideshow Sound Studio is our lovely co-host from the west coast, resident voice actor, puppeteer and Muppet expert, Rachel Herrick, and making his Mouse Music debut, a very talented podcaster and good friend, Sideshow’s newest member, Terrifying Todd Horan! The team of podcasting ghosts take an objective look at one of the more divisive films in the Disney catalog, discussing their favourite moments from the 2003 Walt Disney Pictures’, ‘The Haunted Mansion‘.
Next up, in our insidious intermission, Wend and our resident Disney professor Creepy Chris Lyndon creak the crypt door open and head down to the Sideshow Vault for a spooktacular instalment of the Disney Music Archives. Chris chooses a spinechilling selection for today’s eerie episode, reminding us all of one of the top-selling Disneyland Records of all time, the 1964 bestseller, ‘Chilling, Thrilling Sounds of the Haunted House‘ narrated by Laura Olsher featuring sound effects compiled by Jimmy MacDonald.
Finishing on an absolute high, the ghoulish gang embark once more upon their doombuggies to chat about The Haunted Mansion! Starting with a little Disney history, they gush over their favourite section and characters in the ride, explore the differences between each iteration in the Disney parks, dive into the various renditions of ‘Grim Grinning Ghosts‘, and share their thoughts and experiences on the best attraction in history!
