WDW Radio Show Disney Podcast #80 - August 17, 2008
Welcome to The WDW Radio Show - Your Walt Disney World Information Station. This is show #80 for the week of August 17, 2008, and as always I am your host, Lou Mongello
This week’s show is very special, as I will be devoting an entire episode to a single segment, and more importantly, a single man. He is Richard M. Sherman. You know him as one of the Sherman Brothers, the most successful songwriting team in history, and the name that defines the music and mood of so many Disney feature films and theme park attractions.
Mr. Sherman joins me in this one-to-one interview about his career beginnings, time at the Disney Studios, working for and with Walt Disney, and the stories behind the stories of working on timeless classics like Mary Poppins and legendary songs such as “it’s a small world” and hundreds of others.
I’ll end the show not with announcements or voicemails, but instead, with my small tribute to the work of the Sherman Brothers in thanks for Mr. Sherman joining me on the show, and for a lifetime of memories he helped create.
So sit back, relax, and enjoy a very special episode of the WDW Radio Show.

Richard Sherman Interview
I am a fairly new listener to the podcast but have gone back and listened to about 30 episodes so far. Since each show is produced and delivered at such a high quality, I would have had a difficult time picking out a favorite, that is until now. I have to say that your interview with Mr. Sherman was one of the most engaging, informative and enjoyable interviews I have ever heard anywhere.
Please let Mr. Sherman know how much we appreciate his work and how enjoyable it was to hear him talk about his experiences first hand.
Keep up the great work!
