To celebrate the release of Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy (that has a pretty far out soundtrack) the Sorcerer Radio crew will be going retro playing some Disney park audio and songs from "me decade" of the 1970s!
A lot of 70's tunes can be heard all around the Disney parks and resorts, especially at the Pop Century resort at Walt Disney World. There are also a lot of rather historical things that relate to Disney that took place in the 70's. One of the most notable and is the opening of the Walt Disney World Resort opened on October 1, 1971.
There were also several far out Disney animated classics that were released that decade including The Aristocats, Rescuers, Herbie Rides Again, Escape to Witch Mountain, Bedknobs and Broomsticks, Pete's Dragon, The Black Hole and Robin Hood just to name a few. Oh, and there was that little film called Star Wars!
Be listening to Sorcerer Radio's hosted shows during the morning (8 a.m./eastern) and midday (1 p.m./eastern) to hear all the groovy sounds.
Now can you dig that? I knew that you could!
Check out Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Mix Vol.1 http://amzn.to/1nxdNex
GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY AWESOME MIX VOL. 1 is the collection of songs featured in the film. Music plays a major role in GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY as the 1970s songs featured in the film are part of the storyline in a unique way. Explaining how the songs come to play in the story, director James Gunn says, 'One of the main story points in the movie is that Quill has this compilation tape (Awesome Mix #1) that he got from his mother before she died that she made for him. It was of songs that she loved, all songs from the 1970s, and that's the only thing he has left of his mother and that's the only thing he has left of his home on Earth. He uses that as a connection to his past and to the sadness that he feels of having left all that and lost all that.'
