Options Acid Jazz Hands with Bronwyn Bishop: Playlist from April 23, 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).

Yes, Hal Willner!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:05pm WR:

Avatar 🎭 7:07pm Listener Gregory:

I also have a thing, so I'm only here for the first hour, off and on. Sob!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:08pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@diciassette: sadly the critics thought he spoiled it...love the orchestrations tho!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:08pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Aw well glad you can stop by briefly WR and Gregory :)
Avatar 🎭 7:10pm Listener Gregory:

BB, the performance you played is from that recording, though, and not the failed show?
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:10pm Webhamster Henry:

Hi Bronwyn! Sponging the beer off from Stashu's show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:17pm Bronwyn Bishop:

fun fact: the illustrations for these ben bagley album covers were done by "the fantasticks" composer harvey schmidt!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:21pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Gregory: correct!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:21pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Henry: Someday Stashu and I should co-host a show of polka covers of theatre songs
Avatar 🎭 7:21pm Listener Gregory:

Love the rhyme "chonces" and "glonces."
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:24pm diciassette:

As soon as I'm done putting together this Ikea I'm getting into the free beer that yesterday diciassette left in the refrigerator
Avatar 🎭 7:28pm Listener Gregory:

@diciassette, I recommend beer first, then Ikea. It makes the construction a lot more "interesting."
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:31pm diciassette:

That was my original plan until I got caught up in figuring out what those extra parts were for...
Avatar 🎭 7:36pm Listener Gregory:

This is one of the most impressive performances by a slave toy I have ever heard.
Avatar 🎭 7:45pm Listener Gregory:

I'm having flashbacks to Judy Garland singing "Stairway to Paradise." Can anyone confirm that, or is it just the drugs talking?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:46pm holland oats:

Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:49pm diciassette:

Listener diciassette cannot confirm anything, but he will have what Listener Gregory is having!
Avatar 🎭 7:49pm Listener Gregory:

This is one of the most impressive songs by a clown ensemble I have heard.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:50pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Gregory: A quick google doesn't suggest Judy ever sang it, but Liza did
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:52pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Holland Oats: Hi!! I am intrigued by your shocked emoji
Avatar 🎭 7:53pm Listener Gregory:

@BB, yes, I think you're right about Stairway.
Unfortunately, I have to leave now but will get the rest of the show from the future. Thanks! Intriguing show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:59pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Hi, Bronwyn and bloop birds!

WFMU: More Billy Murray than you thought he ever recorded.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:09pm Bronwyn Bishop:

All the audience members in this recording laughing at this comic song from 1901: i.kym-cdn.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:17pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Henry: WFMU- where Billy Murray is more popular than Bill Murray
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:31pm diciassette:

Just Wyn, baby!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:40pm Webhamster Henry:

The original Wizard was a huge hit! Baum made a sequel about the Wogglebug that was a huge bomb!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:41pm Webhamster Henry:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:53pm Bronwyn Bishop:

The Woggle-Bug...I am intrigued
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:57pm Webhamster Henry:

I got that Hungry Tiger original OZ music collection - but not the Woggle Bug sheet music.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:58pm diciassette:

thanks Bronwyn!
