Options Acid Jazz Hands with Bronwyn Bishop: Playlist from March 5, 2021 Options

Bronwyn Bishop's avatar View Bronwyn Bishop's profile Options

Musical theater from off the beaten path. Obscure and unusual show tunes from within the canon and without, flops, failures, and the newest works from up-and-coming artists—plus tried-and-true hits. Also, occasional appearances from songs that are not show tunes (but only if they go really well with show tunes).

hi WR :D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:03pm Bronwyn Bishop:

i like to imagine that song is all about saying hi to a hawaiian man named jerry

hello WR BRONWYN and diciassette

Ahoy Mr. Hollywood!

oops forgot to take that out
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:08pm Webhamster Henry:

Hi Bronwyn - doing the Fox Trot here?
Avatar 7:14pm Andrew Hollywood:

ahoy hoy
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:15pm doctorjazz:

Hi Bronwyn and all you out there!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:18pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Hi diciassette, Andrew, Henry and doctorjazz!!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:18pm Webhamster Henry:

There's going to be an Assassins 30th anniversary streamcast. givebutter.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:20pm Bronwyn Bishop:

That's a mindfuck cause it means my first boyfriend and my oldest cousin who was like a sister to me growing up- who were born the year Assassins premiered- are turning 30. Which means in a few years I will turn 30
Avatar 7:29pm Andrew Hollywood:

It's a big thing, turning 30
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:30pm Bronwyn Bishop:

I'm generally ok with the idea, but people in their 30s constantly complain about how old they are, so that scares me
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:33pm diciassette:

I didn't realize how unmistakable Billy Porter's voice was
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:34pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Billy Porter is great. He is one of just six Broadway stars I have met at the stagedoor (the others being his Kinky Boots co-star Stark Sands, Zachary Levi and Krysta Rodriguez from First Date, and Andrew Rannells and Josh Gad from The Book of Mormon)
Avatar 7:35pm Andrew Hollywood:

I'm 37 and not about to hand out any inspirational calendar advice, but, ya know. IT'S ONLY 30!

I've been wondering for a while if I'll peak at 40, but now I think that yardstick can be moved back a few more years.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:35pm Bronwyn Bishop:

He is also the only Broadway star with his own Mick Ronson song (I know "Silly Willy Billy Porter" isn't about him, but I like to pretend it is)
Avatar 7:35pm Andrew Hollywood:

don't be afraid of time :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:36pm Bronwyn Bishop:

I plan to peak in my 40s like all my favorite musical theatre songwriters
Avatar 7:38pm Andrew Hollywood:

That sounds good. One of my voice teachers said that a good singer will likely peak in their 40s. :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:39pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Yes! I majored in vocal music in high school and I remember our 24-year-old teacher told us her voice hadn't fully matured yet. We thought she was old and didn't believe her...
Avatar 7:43pm Andrew Hollywood:

Did you go on to study music in college?
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:43pm WR:

that is the same year I moved to NYC. Obviously we traveled in different circles.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:44pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Andrew: I majored in television and radio, but I took a lot of music classes

That's a lot of work!
Avatar 7:53pm Andrew Hollywood:

that's cool Bronwyn :)

great interview
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:06pm Webhamster Henry:

This is lots of fun!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:08pm WR:

lovely open and generous gentleman. Great interview.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:14pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Glad you guys liked the interview, it was great to get advice from a real Broadway songwriter :)
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:26pm doctorjazz:

Joe Williams, Cool!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:28pm doctorjazz:

Dancing a Kazatzka!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:36pm Sweet Corn Lizzie:

That was a great interview and show. As usual!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:39pm Webhamster Henry:

Where did that Carol Channing tape come from?
Avatar 🎭 8:42pm Listener Gregory:

I only missed the first hour and 40 minutes... did I miss anything?
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:48pm Webhamster Henry:

Kiss of the Spider Woman!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:50pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Lizzie: Aw thanks :D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:52pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Henry: The Carol Channing was a live broadcast from 1941 on New York's WOR uploaded to YouTube by YouTube user jonthesYT, who has apparently written a musical about Blitzstein called Blitzstein Strikes Back, which I would watch the shit out of
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:52pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Gregory you arrived just in time for your shout out!
Avatar 🎭 8:53pm Listener Gregory:

Wow, I tune in late and then find myself mentioned on the air! What timing!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:55pm doctorjazz:

Thanks, Bronwyn, great show!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:55pm diciassette:

Thank you Bronwyn!
Avatar 🎭 8:56pm Listener Gregory:

Well, if the rest of the show is anything like the past 5 minutes, it was really tremendous. I will give it a full listen tomorrow. Thanks, BB!
Avatar 🎭 8:58pm Listener Gregory:

Wait, that was Ed McMahon?!!! I'm in shock now.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:59pm doctorjazz:

Ed McMahon, what a riot (pretty good singer)!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:00pm Bronwyn Bishop:

this is not a showtune, and yet exemplifies this program
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:00pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Thanks for listening everyone :)
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 9:01pm WR:

I've always found that "Thank Heaven for Little Girls" to be creepy, more so when sung by McMahon.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 9:01pm diciassette:

Have you ever noticed how, after watching a Marlene Dietrich move, you tend to walk around with your hands on your hips?
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 9:02pm WR:

on the other hand Vagabond Opera immediately seems appealing to me.

thank you Bronwyn! great show!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 9:09pm Webhamster Henry:

Thanks again! Great obscurities tonight too!
Avatar 🎭 2:57pm Listener Gregory:

Listened to the first 80% of the show on the archive. Outstanding! And glad to be introduced to the music of Mr. Bucchino.
