Good Afternoon! This day in Disney history, Jan. 30th, 1959. The TV series Walt Disney Presents airs "The Peter Tchaikovsky Story." This episode is historical in that it was Walt Disney's 1st attempt to broadcast a TV program in stereophonic sound.
As the necessary stereo equipment did not exist at the time, Walt advised the viewers to listen to one stereo "channel" on their TV sets, & the other channel on their radio receivers, w/ local ABC radio affiliates throughout the country simulcasting the episode's soundtrack. Walt was anxious to promote his newest animated feature film Sleeping Beauty, (released the day before) which utilized new orchestrations of Tchaikovsky's classic ballet compositions. In addition to clips of the ballet, and Sleeping beauty, the episode dramatizes events in the early life of composer Peter Ilich Tchaikovsky.
For anyone that may not know,
Tchaikovsky was a 19th century Russian classical composer. A few of his works include "The Nutcracker", "Swan Lake" and a ballet version of "Sleeping Beauty."

Are you a fan of this composer? Do you think his work went well with Disneys version of Sleeping Beauty? Why?
As always thanks for reading!
