Since this week's A Change of Tune is dedicated to indie/alternative takes on Disney music, it would only make sense to chat with West Virginia Public Radio's very own Mouseketeer, Larry Groce. His contributions to records like Disney's Children's Favorite Songs ​and Disney's Christmas Favorites were understated (you'll never see his smiling, bearded face on a record cover) but impactful (millennials know how "Froggie Went A-Courtin'," thanks to Larry). If you're a fan of childhood nostalgia and want to learn more about Larry's past with Disney, particularly his "Disney spirit animal," this interview is recommended for you.
