On March 20th, 2021, Mister Rogers would have been 93 years old. In celebration of the life of Fred Rogers, on Saturday March 20th, you are invited to a virtual video celebration called HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MISTER ROGERS, hosted by TV personality, Tom Bergeron. On this virtual video celebration you’ll see and hear wonderful stories about Fred Rogers from his devoted fans and enjoy shoutouts by award winning artists (and a "surprise" guest)!
And yes, there will be a virtual cake! It’s all happening on March 20th on ThankYouMisterRogers.com. So go to ThankYouMisterRogers.com and join the fun. It will be a beautiful day in the neighborhood.
My friend Dennis Scott has been doing a lot of work behind the scenes, using his many talents to put this birthday celebration together.
For the past twenty years, Dennis Scott has been writing and producing original music and songs for television, recordings, video, radio and theatrical events. He is the recipient of a Grammy, an Emmy, and The Parents' Choice Award. His songs have been recorded by artists such as Ray Charles, Faith Hill, Crystal Gayle, The Charlie Daniels Band, Kathie Lee Gifford, Glen Campbell, Tanya Tucker, Loretta Lynn, The Muppets, and many more.
He’s the producer of the album, Thank You Mister Rogers: Music and Memories and he has stopped by our podcast neighborhood for a visit today. Dennis Scott, welcome back to the neighborhood.
Thank you for joining us here this week in the neighborhood.
