    WDW Radio Show Disney Podcast #127 - July 12, 2009 - Julie Andrews interview



    Hello and welcome to The WDW Radio Show - Your Walt Disney World Information Station. I am your host, Lou Mongello and this is show #127 for the week of July 12, 2009. Thank you for tuning in once again.

    It is a rare occasion when one has the opportunity to speak with someone who is a true legend of stage, screen and film. And this week, I have the honor of being able to share such a conversation with you. With a career that has spanned decades in which she has shared her so many of her incredible talents, she will for many people always be known as the title character in what can only be described as a true masterpiece of filmmaking - Mary Poppins. A character and film that are both practically perfect in every way.

    Dame Julie Andrews joins me in a one on one conversation as we talk about her role as Mary Poppins, how it came to be, working with Walt Disney and the Sherman Brothers, and so much more, including what is ahead for this incredible actress, singer, author and philanthropist.

    I'll end the show with an announcement about something coming up for the WDW Radio Show and its listeners. So sit back, relax, and enjoy this week's episode of the WDW Radio Show.

    You can email the show or call the voicemail TOLL FREE at 888-703-2171.

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

    I got tears listening to the interview. I had just watched the video of "Walt The Man Behind the Myth" It was so wonderful to hear Dame Julie's voice.

    Wow, that was an awesome interview! I'm sure that over the years since Mary Poppins, Dame Julie has given countless interviews about the film, and this interview sounded so genuine, like she had just wrapped on the movie, what a classy person! I'd also like to know how Lou scored this interview, but he probably doesn't want to spoil the magic. Keep up the good work!

    Wow, what a fantastic show this week, Lou. Your interview with Dame Julie Andrews was just amazing to listen to, and I can all ready tell that you are very proud to have gained the opportunity to speak with her. It's wonderful listening to her memories of Mary Poppins and working with Walt himself. Fantastic interview, Lou.

    Your proposal for a Disney Cruise Line meet in 2011 is very interesting, especially on the new Disney Dream when it's open. I probably won't be able to make it, but it'll be awesome if you are able to do it. Amazing show this week Lou, keep up the great work!
    Keep it cool, and keep moving forward!

    Wow, what a great show! It was awsome. I loved seeing Julie Andrews in Mary Poppins and Sound of Music, and I enjoy seeing her in the Princess Diaries films.

    What an incredibly gracious lady. And Lou, you were completely professional, and yet still warm and engaging, in your interview. Well done. For so many of us, like you, Dame Julie has been a wonderful part of our lives for many years. It's these kinds of moving interviews, combined with great pre- and post-music editing, that put you light-years ahead of everyone else.

    Re: WDW Radio Show Disney Podcast #127 - July 12, 2009 - Julie Andrews interview

    Thank you all SO so much! This interview meant a great deal to me personally, and I'm not too proud to admit getting juuuuust a little choked up when I first got on the phone and she said hello.

    Watching Mary Poppins with my family the other day made me appreciate the film, and my conversation, all the more. I mean it when I say that I felt honored to be able to speak with her.

    I'm so happy that you all enjoyed it, as it makes it all the more special for me.

    (and if you think others might like it, please help share the link to the show)

    And no, James - I haven't stopped smiling (or singing Mary Poppins songs in m mind) since then.

    Lou, your interview was Practically Perfect in Every Way. I suppose it could only have been better if you had been in the same room with her.

    Excuse me, for now I have to go watch Mary Poppins again!
