ENCORE: We Remember Fred Rogers and His Neighborhood

5 minutes ago

Fred Rogers’ name has resurfaced in our culture lately, with the release of a new documentary about his life and television show, and a feature movie called You Are My Friend starring Tom Hanks due out at the end of next year. His public television show Mr. Rogers Neighborhood was a cultural staple in this country for more than three decades. We’re remembering Mr. Rogers on today’s show, with the help of a Naples woman who spent a week on set with him and his crew in the early 1980s, before writing a feature story for Parents Magazine. We’ll hear her memories, and listen to some classic moments from the show.
