the morning of October 11, 2007, though I finally get OFF of Main Street
U.S.A. this time, heading to Frontierland where I find The Notorious
Banjo Brothers and Bob...
If that set is not enough for you, then GOOD, because after that, we travel back in time to play TWO MORE sets by the guys, first from the December 2006 (Mousefest trip), and THEN from June 2007. In the first two sets all the players are the full time players, the Sousaphonist in the June 2007 set appeared to be a back up player filling in for the regular sousaphonists day off.
This episode is a bit of a DETOUR from the trip report I've been covering.

Picking up right where we left off in Episode 39, we quickly head back down
Main Street to Town square near the Emporium where we take in a set of the Main Street
Philharmonic, and then spend a little time chatting with and listening to Jim on
what ended up being one of his "40 minute plus" sets.
I was a bit saddened to learn recently of the series of cutbacks WDW's
has made from groups like Spelmans Gledge to the re-imagineering of Pleasure
Island, still I have a lot of hope for the future, as a sort of side consequence
of these changes Carol the keyboardist from Comedy Warehouse has moved over to the
Rose and Crown Pub, and in the process Leon Gregory's position was eliminated,
While I am happy for Carol, I'm saddened for Leon.
As I reconted on this episode I
first saw Leon perform on the "Trip without a camera" (Celebration 25),
but the set in this episode was recorded a few weeks later when
I was on a trip where I was able to stop and listen for a full set (RADP 12).
Continuing the Oct 11, 2007 trip report, we take in one last set by the Toontown Tuners (this time in Fantasyland) before moseying over to Frontierland and seeing Woodays Cowboy Camp.
In July of 2007 I put out an Independence Day show using the patriotic songs the Voices of Liberty did during my trip in June of that year, I knew at the time that I wanted to put the other songs from those sets into some kind of a show, and here it FINALLY is.

This Episode is a continuation of the October 11, 2007 trip report, and it was taken immediatly after the Pirate Tutorial audio from episode 45 in this epsisode we take a voyage on the "World Famous Jungle Cruise".
This Episode is a continuation of the October 11, 2007 trip report, and it was taken immediatly after the Jungle Cruise audio from episode 46, in it we take in my favorite attraction in all of Walt Disney World, Splash Mountain.
The Candlelight Processional is an event with lots of Christmas music with a large orchestra, and a HUGE mass choir, the mass choir is anchored by the Voices of Liberty, and the remainder of the mass is made up of Choirs that come in from all over High Schools, college, churches, and many volunteers fill in spots from the 50,000 plus member cast of the Walt Disney World Resort, a celebrity narates sharing the Christmas Story (the story of Jesus). It is presented three times a night in the weeks leading up to Christmas, every few days the guest narrater changes and on the evening I viewed it the narrater was Marlee Matlin, Marlee if you are not familiar is a hearing impaired actress and so accordingly she used sign language to present the narration she had a gentleman with her who translated her signs into speech, the show also has a regular sign language interpreter, and she normally signs both the narration and the lyrics to the songs the choirs sing, but in this case she only had to do the lyrics of course since Marlee was doing the signing for the narration.
