Brass, Reeds, and Percussion (July 7, 2018)

Jimmie Dodd was the master of ceremonies for the original Mickey Mouse Club, a television show that aired from 1955 to 1959. The show was opened and closed with the “Mickey Mouse March.” The music and song was written by Jimmie Dodd—a musician, composer, and guitarist hired by Walt Disney to host the show. Before the television show, Dodd had been a minor movie and television actor. He is the quintessential one-hit wonder, with his whole career dependent on the television show and the “Mickey Mouse March.”
