Disney, Indiana – Episode 136 – Make Mine Music: The Lighter Side of the 1990’s

In today’s episode, one of the more popular segments of the Disney, Indiana podcast returns as Tracey and Scott play Make Mine Music by counting down their favorite Disney songs from the 1990s.

Our hosts found this to be a daunting task at first as there is so much good music associated with Disney from this time frame, so they limited the scope a little. They decided to only look at lighter songs this time around – they’ll do another 1990s countdown with the more serious and love songs at a future date.

Along with the Make Mine Music segment, they also share a bit of audio they recorded at Walt Disney World – from an attraction that opened in the 1990s.

All this, plus a call to the Main Street Cinema and some listener feedback.
