I'm sure you are aware that there are things that go on at the parks that you may always miss or skip by because you think they wouldn't interest you. But, did you know that there is a extravaganza only Disney could host contained within the borders of the Port Orleans Resort? Yes, a moderate resort!
Yes folks, it's another post about music at "The Hollow". I have decided that I'd like to start a series of posts about musical entertainment in the parks that may be overlooked, walked past, or just not known about.
My inaugural post is about Bob Jackson (aka Yehaa Bob).
Yehaa Bob is a more than an entertaining pianist. He is a one-man show of the vaudeville variety. But, in the name of full disclosure, I have still managed to not see his show in person.
So, what makes me feel comfortable writing about a musical presentation that I have never participated in?
That's easy: Window to the Magic!
This is the podcast put out by Paul Barrie and Patrick Hurd (Don't forget to vote for Patrick as CMO).
Paul introduced me to Bob Jackson during his recap episodes of MouseFest 2006 through the use of his fantastic Binaural Recordings.
He re-introduced me to Bob with this week's show: WindowToTheMagic Show #138.
I could just imagine the amount of fun I'll one day have sitting in Bob's audience. It has got to be the only place, besides The Adventurer's Club (Hoopla) where you can be amongst a roomful of adults hopped up on too much Pixie Dust acting like the kids that they were forced to ignore in order to be responsible members of society.
Paul's recording lets you get the full flavor of this Musical Treasure because it's not the same as a CD recording of Bob's show. You are getting all the sounds, heckling, pixie-dust induced comments and what-not that his binaural microphones pick up.
If you are looking for a really entertaining podcast that will introduce you to Yehaa Bob then check out WTTM #138. If you want to have a weekly taste of theme park audioscaping gold, then subscribe to the WTTM podcast. Paul just recently recorded his 1 millionth download! Help him get to 2 million.
I'm hoping that I'll get to finally hear Bob Jackson, in person, during my trip this June. If I do, you know that there will be a great write up in my wordy tomes known as my trip reports.
