This is WEDway Radio episode 60, hosted by Matt and Nate.  This week we begin a new series, Disney MGM Studios 89, which looks at the (then) Disney MGM Studios in its first year.  We begin the series by looking at the development of the Studios from an idea for an Entertainment themed Future World Pavilion at Epcot Center.  This was during the 1980's when the Disney Studio was going through a lot of changes that ultimately led to new leadership, headed by Studio chief Michael Eisner and Frank Wells.  We discuss the different influences that led Disney to create the Studios and the Hollywood star power that Eisner was able to provide and finally discuss the finished product that we ended up with. Enjoy!
