I am REALLY looking forward to this one Lou!
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.

Great interview Lou!!!!
Wow Lou, this was a great interview! I liked the music montage at the end. Classic stuff. When he first said hello to you, did he call you something else or am I just hearing things?

incredible interview. we just finished watching mary poppins saturday night, and watched the ext ras sunday , fantastic timing. i was in tears a few times during the interview, especially the tuppins song mister sherman did towards the end
I always enjoy your podcast, but this one with Richard Sherman topped them all! His insights and anecdotes about Walt were wonderful to hear. Disney would not have been Disney without the Sherman brothers. Your preparation was outstanding as usual. Thanks for a great interview!

Lou, this was honestly one of the best shows to date. Your conversation with Richard M. Sherman was amazing to hear. It's great to hear one-on-one with one of the legendary Sherman Brothers. I love all the music they've done, and I remembered them just as they were mentioned in the interview. Great job Lou for conducting the interview, I envy you for being able to personally speak with him. Great show Lou!

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!
