Interview with Pete Renaday, Disney voice actor (Country Bear Jamboree, 20,000 Leagues, TTA and more)
Hello and welcome to The WDW Radio Show – Your Walt Disney World Information Station. I am your host, Lou Mongello, and this is show #232 for the week of July 24, 2011.
One of the things I enjoy doing on the show is recognizing and paying tribute to those people who have helped create the magic of the Walt Disney World parks that we enjoy today and have in the past. From Disney Legends to Imagineers, I feel fortunate to be able to share their stories in their own words. And this week, being able to hear from a person who has helped create some of that Disney magic is a real treat. From singing bears to an American President, his presence in the parks has been constant since Walt Disney World opened, and this week, I’m pleased to welcome Pete Renaday to the show. As Henry from the Country Bear Jamboree to President Lincoln and Captain Nemo, his career at the Disney Company started decades ago, and he shares his stories of meeting Walt Disney, working on animated films and his work in the theme parks. So just refrain from hibernatin’ and we’ll all enjoy the show, cause he’s got a lot to give.
I’ll have a few announcements before playing some of your voicemails at the end of the show. So sit back, relax, and enjoy this week’s episode of the WDW Radio Show
