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 at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the voicemail TOLL FREE at 888-703-2171.
Thanks for listening! Be sure to tune in next week!

From Glenn (Passamaquoddy)Whelan – The Pretty Good Movie Ride
In addition to painstaking recreations of ALL incarnations of the Great Movie Ride finale (scene by scene, frame by frame, from the DVDs), he also created the Pretty Good Movie Ride montage! Following the exact same layout and format as the original finale montage, Glenn does an AMAZING job of putting together “his own” version with classic clips from some “pretty good” movies!
This is a MUST SEE (more than once!) so check it out (and share the link!) Bravo, Glenn!! Impressive… MOST impressive!!!
