Video: Disney Legend Richard M. Sherman Concert on the Disney Dream with WDW Radio

From November 4-8, 2012, Lou Mongello joined hundreds of friends and listeners of WDW Radio for the second annual WDW Radio Cruise on the Disney Dream.

We were joined by our very special guest, Disney Legend Richard M. Sherman of the Sherman Brothers. The Sherman Brothers have written timeless classics such as the music from Mary Poppins, The Jungle Book, The Aristocats, The Tigger Movie, it’s a small world, There’s a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow, Epcot’s Imagination Pavilion, The Tiki Tiki Tiki Room and countless others.

Mr. Sherman performed a private concert only for WDW Radio guests, and told stories of working with Walt Disney, Julie Andrews, and Dick VanDyke, and on theme park attraction songs for Disneyland and Walt Disney World.

Here is just a small sample of our memorable, intimate concert with Richard M. Sherman.

Join us on our next WDW Radio cruise by visiting

Thanks for watching!

    The BEST video yet 🙂 How lucky you are to have met him. Would have loved to have been there. Is there a place where we can watch the whole concert?
    Mary poppins one of my favorites. To get to meet Mr. Sherman and Dick Van Dyke would be two notches on my bucket list.
    Do you know when “Saving Mr. ??” (mind went blank),with tom Hanks will be out?

    An unforgettable experience. Mr. Sherman has such a beautiful soul. I wish we could relive the whole presentation all over again, but I do appreciate the recap!

    What a once in a lifetime opportunity! It astounds me the sheer number of songs the Sherman Brothers wrote and how they all take us to a certain place the moment we hear them. What a remarkable career. What a wonderful storyteller.

    Thanks for uploading. I was quite moved by this. All these songs that I have grown up singing and loving. I didn’t know they were all Sherman brothers songs.To know now that they were all written by the Sherman Brothers blows my mind!

    I cried watching this video. Knowing that he was half of the genius pair that wrote so many songs that shaped my childhood…and listening to “Feed the Birds” and imagining Walt asking them to play that very version for them…makes my Disney loving heart so, so happy.
