Ann Alexander and Allie Polatin tell me the 23rd annual KidFilm festival was a success. I tried to assist with getting ARTHUR RANKIN, JR. and JULES BASS to appear at this festival in Dallas, Texas BUT that is easier said than done. Glad to see that the kids had fun! www.usafilmfestival.com

THE DAYDREAMER soundtrack CD is finally out and it is a GREAT one! The music sounds amazing (Digitally re-mastered), there are BONUS tracks, a 36 minute interview I did with MAURY LAWS and I was lucky enough to write new liner notes. Listening to the interview again was interesting. We talked about RUDOLPH, RETURN TO OZ, THE BERMUDA DEPTHS, JERRY LEWIS, MAD MONSTER PARTY, etc. MAURY talks about the process that he and JULES BASS went through to create the wonderful RANKIN/BASS soundtracks and gives insight to the creation of "One Star In The Night" from THE LITTLE DRUMMER BOY. If you love the music from the classic RANKIN/BASS specials, you will love this!
