Encore: We Remember Fred Rogers and His Neighborhood

Fred Rogers from 1982 Parents Magazine Story

Fred Rogers’name has resurfaced in our culture lately, first with a documentary about his life and television show, and now a feature movie called A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhoodstarring Tom Hanks. His public television show Mr. Rogers Neighborhoodwas a cultural staple in this country for more than three decades. We’re remembering Mr. Rogers 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 hear her memories, and listen to some classic moments from the show.
