An interview with Disney Legend Richard M. Sherman

What evokes strong memories of your last visit to a Disney Theme Park? A smell? A food? A character? A sound?  Yes, for many of us sounds, particularly music, make up a large part of our theme park experience and memories.  Recently, I had the pleasure to speak with Disney Legend Richard M. Sherman, one half of the prolific, sibling songwriting team who created much of the music we associate with our Disney Park memories: “it’s a small world (after all)”, “There’s a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow”, “The Tiki, Tiki, Tiki Room”, “One Little Spark”, and “Winnie the Pooh” to name a few.  Click here to read and listen to my interview with two-time Oscar® winner Richard M. Sherman.
