Listen to the Show

Lou and Jack Lindquist 2

Hello and welcome to The WDW Radio Show – Your Walt Disney World Information Station. I am your host, Lou Mongello, and this is show #228 for the week of June 26, 2011.

During this past weekend’s 3rd annual PNW MouseMeet, a gathering of Disney fans in the Pacific Northwest, I had the privilege of not only attending once again, but the opportunity to sit down and interview another Disney Legend, and share that interview with you. Lack Lindquist joined the Disney Company just two months after Disneyland opened and during his nearly four decades with the company, held many roles, from public relations to being unexpectedly named the President of Disneyland. In addition to working directly with Walt Disney, Jack later went on to work on unique advertising concepts, EPCOT Center and many of his admittedly crazy ideas are still found in the parks today. I think you”ll enjoy getting a first-hand recount of the growth and development of the parks, and the Disney Company as a whole.

Thanks for listening! Be sure to tune in next week!

    Don’t forget that you two are BFF’s now!! 😉

    Your enthusiasm and genuine excitement and awe over getting to interview him made the interview that much more fun to watch on Saturday. I was there for Bob Gurr last year and I can truly say that you are living the fan-geek dream!

    We just love listening to your interviews, Lou! You are the quintessential interviewer because you ask a question then let your guest talk and talk. No interruptions, no jumping and and rudely cutting off your guest in mid thought. Your gift of knowing just when to ask the next question and choosing just the right question shows your guests the highest respect. We can’t wait to hear the next one!!!

    Love the old Our Gang shows. I’m always amazed at the life experiences some of the people you interview talk about; and your time with Mr. Lindquist was no exception. I found the stories, knowledge and advice he shared with you intriguing. I could listen to him talk for hours. I consider myself an old soul, which my wife agrees with; so hearing stories from days gone by, really hold my attention. Thank you once again for all the hard work you put into each and every show, Lou!!!

    A true legend. I agree with Chuck…I could listen to their stories for hours about the history of the parks and company.
