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: firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet us: @sideshowsound.
Sit back, relax and enjoy the show!

To finish off 2014, we each bring two of our favourite main themes to the table and discuss what they mean to us.
Our first selections include the militaristic Thunderbirds theme by Barry Gray, two themes from Bear McCreary including the musical palindrome that is Da Vinci’s Demons and the unsettling main theme to the television series Caprica, the unforgettable Tara’s Theme from Gone with the Wind by the prolific film composer Max Steiner. For the second round of choices we discuss the beautifully majestic Star Trek Voyager theme Jerry Goldsmith composed, the amazingly bombastic Wing Commander theme by David Arnold, the beautiful, childlike theme for To Kill a Mockingbird by Elmer Bernstein, and the infamous and arguably greatest superhero theme of all time, John Williams’ Superman theme.
