Mouse Lounge -- Epsiode 036 -- May 26, 2008 (((HEADPHONES STRONGLY RECOMMENDED)))

This week, the Mouse Lounge takes a trip to the antebellum south and Critter Country. Also on the show, a full docket of Disney News from our departments Entertainment, Theme Parks East, Theme Parks West, and Business.

In our Get to know the Disney Podcasters segment we have a seat in the lounge with the man behind the golden Window to the Magic microphone, Paul Barrie.

No trip to the South would be complete without great music. The Disneyland Band is up to the task with a New Orleans themed Concert in the Park.

Each week in From the Vault we sample a clip from a classic Disney film, short, television or radio program, or Disneyland Record. This week take an audio journey into Song of the South. First, excerpts from a delightful radio promotion featuring Johnny Mercer, Walt, and members of the cast. Then again join Johnny Mercer and his group, the Pied Pipers and the original cast on the 1947 Capitol Records DC-116, the Tales of Uncle Remus.

From the Disney Family Museum take a journey in the making of Song of the South with excerpts from a Special Exhibit about the film. We then turn to the unabridged audio book, Neal Gablers, Walt Disney the Triumph of the American Imagination for an in depth look into the film and the politics that surrounded it.

Each week we present a high definition ride-through from a Disney Park East or a Disney Park West. Have a listen to Tim O’Brien, Senior Editor of Amusement Business Magazine and Imagineers Kathy Mangum and the late Bruce Gordon as they talk about the making of this weeks featured attraction, Splash Mountain.

Then, grab your parka as we hop into a log for a spectacular ride through of the Magic Kingdoms version of the attraction.

We close the show with a beautifully swinging arrangement of Sooner or Later as sung by the incomparable Dinah Shore.
