Interview with Disney Composer Bruce Broughton
Hello and welcome to The WDW Radio Show – Your Walt Disney World Information Station. I am your host, Lou Mongello, and this is show #267 for the week of March 25, 2012.
I’m pleased to share an interview this week with someone whose incredible talents in storytelling are not with pictures or words, but through his music. Bruce Broughton has received 20 Emmy and numerous Grammy awards as well as an Academy Award nomination for his television and motion picture work, and he also composed and conducted scores for Disney animated films such as The Rescuers Down Under and Bambi II. His incredible music can also be found throughout the Disney parks in themes for attractions such as Ellen’s Energy Adventure, The Timekeeper, Honey I Shrunk the Audience and most recently, Spaceship Earth. He will share stories about working on the films and in the theme parks, including the processes, inspiration, differences and experiences, which may just make you appreciate these incredible works of art even more.
I’ll have the answer and winner for last week’s Walt Disney World Trivia Question of the Week, and pose a new one for your chance to win a Disney prize package.
I’ll have a few announcements and then play more of your voicemails at the end of the show. So sit back, relax, and enjoy this week’s episode of the WDW Radio Show.
Thanks for listening! Be sure to tune in next week!
