The Princess and the Frog Artwork for our Disney Music Podcast

Mouse Music #13 – The Princess and the Frog

Welcome to Mouse Music, where we celebrate the magic, music and history of the Walt Disney Company! In our 13th episode, we discuss the 49th Disney animated feature film, The Princess and the Frog!

Joining Will & Wend for their trip down the bayou is Rachel, Chris & Todd! The full hostful head to New Orleans to talk about the 2009 animated musical, ’The Princess and the Frog‘, scored by Sideshow favourite composer Randy Newman.

Up next, it’s time to turn back the hands of the Sideshow clock and head back to the past in the Disney Music Archives. Chris brings us three earworms for the price of two from Disney legend George Bruns that all share a similar history. For today’s episode, we provide a healthy dose of toe-tapping dixieland jazz in That Happy Rag, The Humphrey Hop, and 1925 in all their various iterations over the years and their magnum opus in the Autoparts Harmonic Orchestra at the 1964 New York World’s Fair.

Rachel and Todd return us to the present to finish the show In the Parks in New Orleans Square over at Disneyland! After a rundown of the land’s history, the team take a stroll through the narrow, winding streets and intimate courtyards to celebrate and share their thoughts and memories of the mint juleps, French cuisine, authentic architecture, Club 33 and atmosphere of the birthplace of jazz.

Did you enjoy The Princess and the Frog as much as us? We’d love to hear about your experiences in New Orleans Square, as well as your favourite tunes by George Bruns! Feel free to contact us anytime at:

Star Wars Artwork for our Disney Music Podcast

Mouse Music #1 – Star Wars

Happy New Year and welcome to the inaugural episode of Mouse Music, a podcast celebrating the music and history of the Walt Disney Company. In our first episode we combine two of our great loves, Star Wars and Disney!

We have a blast talking with our friends Richard and Sarah Woloski from Skywalking Through Neverland about the recent Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser trailer and irresponsibly speculating about the new movie.

Also, Wendell chats with Chris Lyndon about his time working at the Disney parks and to debut their new ongoing segment, the Disney Music Archives. Keeping with the space-travel theme, Chris presents us with a comical song from a 1955 episode of the Disneyland anthology series titled “Man and the Moon”, composed by the musical legend George Bruns.

Finally, in celebration of the 28th Anniversary of Star Tours, we start another new segment In the Parks by diving in to the history of the attraction and exploring the incredible music created for it by Richard Bellis and Michael Giacchino.

We invite you to share with us your reactions to the new Star Wars teaser trailer, your experiences riding the Starspeeder 1000, as well as your favourite music by George Bruns! Contact us via email: sideshowsound@gmail.com or tweet us: @sideshowsound.

Sit back, relax and enjoy the show!
