MegaPodtastic # 233 with David Newell (Mr. McFeely) from 'Mister Rogers' Neighborhood'

Aug. 30, 2018

It's the 50th Anniversary year of TV's Mister Rogers' Neighborhood, and we're very excited to welcome one of the show's stars, David Newell!



For over 30 years David Newell played the role of Mr. McFeely on Mister Rogers' Neighborhood. He continues to play the role in public appearance all over the country. 

This year David Newell has been promoting the new documentary Won't You Be My Neighbor? that is coming to DVD and Blu-Ray on September 4th!




David is also promoting a new biography on Mr. Rogers, The Good Neighbor: The Life and Work of Fred Rogers, by author Maxwell King.



David Newell was also the subject of his own documentary a few years ago. It's called Speedy Delivery, and well worth checking out!




If you're in the Philadelphia area, please come out and meet David Newell at the Keystone Comic Con on September 14th through September 16th.

David will be returning to Philadelphia on Monday September 24th! He'll be joining author Maxwell King for a book signing or King's The Good Neighbor at the Free Library of Philadelphia at 7:30 pm!
