The Muppets Artwork for our Disney Music Podcast

Mouse Music #7 – The Muppets

Welcome to the first episode of Mouse Music in 2016, a podcast celebrating the music and history of the Walt Disney company. Thanks for stopping by! What a show we have for you today! In celebration of our one year anniversary, we have decided to devote our seventh episode to all things Muppety. Rachel takes over hosting duties as we finally talk The Muppets!

The Muppets were purchased by Disney in 2004 and so Rachel, Will and Wend sit down to fondly discuss their recent history, covering the TV specials, the ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ video, the 2 feature films, ‘The Muppets’ and ‘Muppets Most Wanted‘, and the ABC television series.

In the Disney Music ArchivesChris Lyndon, a man we all love, bypasses the Disney vault today and walks a few doors down to the Jim Henson vault to bring us a classic and much-loved song from our childhood taken from the show Sesame Street, ‘Sing’. Chris shares with us some of the more famous renditions of the song, why it means so much to him, as well as his love for The Muppets and the attraction in the parks.

Finally, after their recent trip to Walt Disney World, Will and Wend sit down with Rachel to chat about their love for Muppet*Vision 3D in their In the Parks segment. So grab your 3D glasses as we head to Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Orlando, Florida! We guide you through one of our favourite Disney shows, providing you with a brief history lesson, all the updates over the years and our experiences watching the show on both coasts!

Do you love The Muppets and Jim Henson as much as we do? Please get in touch with us! We’d be so happy to hear your Muppet story, as well as your thoughts on the new series, ‘Sing’, Sesame Street and Muppet*Vision 3D!

Frozen Artwork for our Disney Music Podcast

Mouse Music #6 – Frozen

Welcome to another episode of Mouse Music, a show celebrating the music and the history of the Walt Disney company. Thanks for tuning in! We have an icetastic episode for you today as we take a break from the Disney renaissance. In our sixth episode, we’re off to the icy, cold snowscape that is the kingdom of Arendelle to discuss the 53rd animated feature in the Walt Disney Animated Classics series, the highest-grossing animated film of all time, Frozen, with it’s multiple award-winning songs by the husband-and-wife songwriting team of Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez, and it’s awe-inspiring soundtrack by the very gifted Christophe Beck.

Joining us here again at Sideshow HQ is our co-host from the West Coast, Rachel Herrick, to chat about this generation’s The Lion King, the 2013 musical fantasy Frozen. As usual we discuss our favourite songs, our first experiences watching Disney’s most successful film in recent years and why it deserves all the hype and accolades it’s received!

Alongside Wendell, our Disney Legend Chris Lyndon brings us another tasty gem from the Disney Music Archives. This week Chris brings us a lushly orchestrated and oft-forgotten song from the 1948 film Melody Time, ‘Once Upon a Wintertime’. Chris classes up the joint with his knowledge once again, he schools us all on package films, the tune’s incredible vocalist Frances Langford and legendary artist Mary Blair and her unforgettable work at Disney.

Finally, to celebrate Disneyland’s 60th Anniversary, Will, Wend and Chris will be setting sail on the Sideshow pirate galleon to see what magic awaits them at Fantasyland in their In the Parks segment. So grab your pixie dust, and meet us for a flight to Neverland! We guide you through one of Disneyland’s greatest classic rides, the endearing “Peter Pan’s Flight”. We’ll be covering all versions and their revisions over the years, the enchanting music and of course, our experiences aboard the suspended, dark ride, particularly at Walt Disney World.

Do you love Disney as much as us? Please get in touch! We´d really LOVE to hear your thoughts on Frozen, as well as your comments on Once Upon a Wintertime and Peter Pan’s Flight!
