The Background of the Background Music

Post by MW1218 » Apr Wed 03, 2013 7:38 am

Here's an article that I think anybody who spends even a little amount of time on Subsonic radio will enjoy...the story of the creation of much of the background music at Disneyland and Walt Disney World!

I had no idea that Jack Wagner, THE voice (monorail, Magical Express, spiels and much more) was also responsible for a lot of the music we hear in the parks!

Guess I'll be repeating other posts, but Thank You for the link to the article; definitely interesting, especially to those of us who are very conscious of the music in the Parks. I may miss a Hidden Mickey :mickey: but I always hear the music.
