The WDW Radio Show

Mrs. Doc can attest that it wasn't long after I started The Disney Obsession and began making friendships (wonderful friendships I might add) that podcasts entered my life. My daughter sold me on the benefits of owning an iPod and prior to my trip to Disney this past April, I became familiar with a variety of podcasts. Mostly Disney podcast mind you.

In April, during the Disney's Animal Kingdom 10th Anniversary weekend I had the privilege of meeting a few podcasters. From then on I was hooked. I began listening as often as possible and began playing catch up with my more favorite casts. These little technological wonders are one way I stay connnected to the parks during these long breaks here in Tennessee.

Then, I thought, "You know, I would really like to be on a podcast." I dreamed about this, wondering what it is I could talk about. I thought there were a few conversations I could take part in, and in truth, I have already done so at times during my drives to and from work. Just me talking to my iPod going down Interstate 40.

Yesterday my dream came true. Well, one of my dreams anyway. I joined my friend Glenn Whelan on Lou Mongello's WDW Radio Show. With MouseFest 2008 less than 3 weeks away, we discussed the event from a veteran and rookie perspective. I am the rookie. How was it? I had a blast! Thanks Lou, I appreciate it buddy.

So, be sure to check out this week's episode of the award winning WDW Radio Show. I hope we share a little insight into MouseFest.

Oh, and as for other dreams, I dream of staying one night in the Walter Elias Disney Suite at the Grand Floridian. Okay, okay, one week. And, I dream of walking down Main Street U.S.A. with my grandchildren.

Hey Doc, it was a real honor and pleasure having you on this week's show, and hope you'll join me again in the future! It was great talking with you and I'm looking forward to seeing you at MouseFest!

Keep up the great work on the blog!

You feel the same way about podcasts as I do...great way to stay connected. I had the chance to record with Lou a few weeks back. It is a lot of fun. Can't wait to hear your segment. Mousefest isn't in the cards for 2008 or 2009 for me...but I'm thinking it might make a great 30th birthday trip in 2010.

Doc - I finished listening to the podcast this afternoon. It was a great episode. Lou has been on a role lately (oh, the past year I guess) and you were a great guest.

DOC -- it was great to hear you on Lou's show. I look forward to seeing you at Mousefest!

Heard you on Lou's podcast this morning, as I was making my 20 minute commute to downtown Nashville, and I'm thrilled to learn I'm not the only Disney obsessive in metro Nashville!

Wish I could join your MouseFest rocking chair session, but this is a busy time of the year for me. Have a wonderful trip!

Thanks to everyone for your comments and especially to Lou for letting me take part in the show. On a personal note to Terry Mann, you are not alone here. There is an NFFC here in Nashville. If you're interested in learning more about it let me know.

Sure, I'd love to connect with other Disney fans in Nashville. I just helped a friend plan a trip - she's headed to the Poly tomorrow morning. I'm so jealous.

Terry, type Music City NFFC into your browser. It is a site, but will give you some information and a why to sign up to receive meeting notices. Our December meeting will be a small get together at MouseFest but following that we'll get together in Nashville in January. Hope to see you there.
