RADIO AND REVIEWS
WQED FM Pittsburgh -
"Drew Tretick’s Cinema Classics is a great favorite on the QED Morning

around music all day and must say, his music is of the best."
Drew was honored to be invited by the Robert
B. Sherman (1925-2012) family to

(below) they wrote classics such as "It's a Small World,"
and songs for musicals such as Mary Poppins, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang,
Tom Sawyer, Winnie the Pooh, Charlotte's Web, and many more. The Sherman
brother's "Feed the Birds" was Walt Disney's favorite song.
