We all love those rare Disney gems that have changed the lives of many. One of those groundbreaking films was the infamous ‘Who Framed Roger Rabbit‘. This film starred the talented Bob Hoskins and Charles Fleischer as Roger (Click here is listen to Charles as our guest on DizRadio.com). Together these two worked wonders on screen with this live action and animated comedy. It set a different tone as it was darker, more adult than anything Disney in the past and also included non-Disney characters in the film. Anyways, be sure to go and check out the film ‘Who Framed Roger Rabbit’.

On a sad note that beloved actor Hoskins passed away at 71 years old last night on April 29th surrounded by his friends and family it has been reported. Bob was at the hospital when he said a big farewell to the world for his final act. He passed away due to complications with pneumonia.

Hoskins had retired from film in 2012 with Snow White and the Huntsman being his last role on the Silver Screen. His decision to say goodbye to acting was in part due to his being diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 2011.

Bob had been part of many fan favorite films from Mermaids with Cher, to playing the beloved Super Mario and of course being a pirate in Hook with Robin Williams.

Bob was a class act actor. He always had a presence on the screen and seemed genuine in his delivery and loveable always as a character actor. He will be missed.

Disney Star from Choo-Choo Soul Releases First Single From Upcoming Album Teaching Pre-School FUN-damentals

Goings Upcoming Solo Album "Do You Know?"

Goings Upcoming Solo Album “Do You Know?”

Singer/Songwriter Genevieve Goings is known to all Disney Channel-watching fans as the hip singing train conductor on the educational interstitials known as “Choo Choo Soul with Genevieve”, remaking Classic Disney sing-alongs, and voicing the learning bumpers featured on the new Disney Junior network.

Goings is releasing the first single from her upcoming solo album “Do You Know?” called “My Telephone Number Is” on April 22. The full album is scheduled for release on June 3, 2014. The album focuses on teaching pre-school FUN-damentals in her funky, cool, kid-friendly style.

A ten-year veteran of children’s entertainment, Goings is now welcoming a second generation of viewers and listeners with the release of her first solo album doing what she does best – teaching and entertaining children with educational lyrics and motivating music.

“Do You Know?” is a new presentation path for learning for young children ages 2-7 years old. It features songs and videos aimed at helping preschoolers learn their phone number, telling time, putting themselves to bed, and the more personal things like hygiene and dealing with potty training in a dignified manner. This new inspiring set of songs is fun for the whole family and will have parents and teachers singing and dancing along.

Genevieve Goings

Genevieve Goings

Pre-orders on iTunes for the album will begin in early May. With the pre-order, fans will receive instant access to the bonus single “Gotta Do My Business”. Goings recently released a free app on iTunes called “Sing with Genevieve”, that provides children and parents a safe link to Choo Choo Soul videos, songs and other children’s projects Goings has been a part of in the last year including the recently released Fisher-Price “Little People” webisodes. Fisher-Price enlisted Goings for their global re-branding of the “Little People” to develop the musical bed, lyrics and recordings that help bring their new webisodes to life, as well as producing six original songs introducing the brand’s new characters. The creative team invested countless hours in the Fisher-Price story room to create the perfect balance between the brand’s storied past and its promising future. One of the most important, thought-out assets during the content development was the music, which Goings wrote, recorded and produced.

Goings can also be seen in the public service announcements for Disney’s newest initiative in partnership with First Book called ‘Give a Book, Get a Book’ on the Disney Channel and Disney Junior.

Harley-Davidson, Marvel Join Forces in National Search for Real-Life Fan to Star in New Digital Franchise

Harley-Davidson, Marvel Join Forces in National Search for Real-Life Fan to Star in New Digital Franchise

Harley-Davidson, Marvel Join Forces in National Search for Real-Life Fan to Star in New Digital Franchise

Harley-Davidson and Marvel Entertainment, LLC, have teamed up once again to defend freedom and tame explosive city streets in – and beyond – the popular film franchise, Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Since the early days of Captain America, he has been associated with Harley-Davidson, and the latest chapter of the film saga is no different as the Super Hero now revs up a brand new Harley-Davidson Street 750.

Captain is Looking for a Few Good Agents

Captain is Looking for a Few Good Agents

To unite fans of both brands, Harley-Davidson is seeking candidates to join Captain America as “Agent 1” and star in a brand-new digital franchise, which will introduce a new chapter of action, including a group of characters created by Marvel’s Custom Division exclusively for Harley, and feature the new Harley-Davidson Street 750. The mini-movie and digital comic will debut in Marvel and Harley-Davidson online and social channels this summer.

“Our collaboration with Marvel puts fans directly into the center of the action like never before,” said Dino Bernacchi, Harley-Davidson U.S. Director of Marketing. “Starring as the hero in this new chapter with Marvel is not only the new Street 750 – but a real-life fan as well. The Street’s features are right in line with the authenticity, toughness, action and individualism for which Captain America is known and revered by fans around the world, and sourcing our new hero directly from that pool is equally as real and authentic.”

Digital Casting Call

To enter the Harley-Davidson Captain America: The Winter Soldier online contest, special agent hopefuls are invited to complete an online skills assessment and select a custom bike of their choice at www.h-d.com/marvel. After completing the assessment, each candidate receives a badge and special promotional offer. Legal residents of the United States who are at least 18 years of age can enter now through April 30.

One grand prize winner will not only land the role as the eponymous “Agent 1,” they also will rule the streets with a brand new custom Harley-Davidson Street 750 motorcycle and a rider training course, including a stunt riding lesson with Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier stunt rider Riley Harper.

The Street 750 and Street 500 from Harley-Davidson, the latest additions to Harley-Davidson’s Dark Custom line-up, feature the all-new liquid-cooled Revolution X™ engine, housed in a narrow and lean chassis built for agility. New suspension and a broad handlebar sweep provide the confidence and maneuverability you need when managing tight turns and fast moves in defense – or pursuit of – freedom. It also has the premium, minimalist Dark Custom style that serves as a blank canvas for riders to customize.

United Airlines Sends Chicago-Area ‘Straight A’ Students on a Dream Vacation to Disney World

United Airlines

United Airlines

United Airlines and the James R. Jordan Foundation are sending four straight-A Chicago-area students and their families on the trip of a lifetime Sunday morning as part of United Airlines’ “Family Dream Vacation Program.”

The hard-working students from Chicago’s West Haven and Englewood neighborhoods have earned an all-expense-paid trip to Disney World by meeting the rigorous requirements of the James R. Jordan Foundation’s A-Team Scholar Program and maintaining straight-A’s in all four core subjects throughout the entire school year.

“The determination and focus of these straight-A students are remarkable. Through partnerships with organizations like the James R. Jordan Foundation and others, together we’re able to help inspire the next generation of leaders,” said Mark Anderson, United’s senior vice president of government and community affairs. “At United, we know the importance of connecting people all over the world to fulfill their dreams.”

On Sunday, April 13, the students and families will arrive by limousine at O’Hare International Airport for their first-class treatment, which includes expedited check in at the Global Services lobby. With support from the James R. Jordan Foundation, United Airlines and the United Airlines Foundation, families will enjoy a three-night stay at a Walt Disney World Resort and passes to the theme park. The families will return from their dream vacation on Wednesday, April 16.

The James R. Jordan Foundation is guided by the belief that a strong family plays a major role in a child’s academic success.

“Education is a way out of poverty,” said Mrs. Deloris Jordan, president and founder of the James R. Jordan Foundation. “If a child has a good education and determination, there isn’t a glass ceiling that can stop them. They can and will find a way. The James R. Jordan Foundation is deeply grateful for partners like United, which continue to make our mission possible by their generous support.”  

United proudly supports hundreds of organizations across the country that provide opportunities for youth, connect communities with arts and culture, work to improve lives through health and education, and improve the environment. United’s 14,400 Chicago-based employees offer their time, talents and energy to make an impact in their communities. United continues to connect Chicago to the world, but just as importantly, United partners with more than 40 local organizations to address needs and issues in order to improve lives and to promote change for the better within the city.

Well now you can stop holding your breath because the Official Teaser has been released for ‘Girl Meets World’.

It doesn’t show us much, but it instantly makes us relive those fond memories of watching these two parents grow up to become parents like many of us.

“I am not sure about you, but I know I am excited to sit down as a family, and share this new series with my children and hope it brings them as much fun as the original series did for me, all the while taking me down memory lane. “
