Voice of Goofy,

Bill Farmer

This week on The National Defense we welcome actor and singer Rick Springfield to the show to talk about his career and his new single “The Wall Will Fall” recorded with friends remotely during the pandemic.  Army Col Vanessa Benson from Ford joins the show to discuss Ford’s donation agreement with the Department of Defense of over 200,000 face shields made on Ford factory floors.  H&R Block’s Chief Tax Officer, Kathy Pickering, talks with Randy about the changes that COVID-19 outbreaks have on your personal finances, and the long-time voice of loved Disney characters like Goofy and Pluto, Bill Farmer, joins the show for some much needed levity.  Wherever you are, we hope you’re staying safe and healthy!
