Options Acid Jazz Hands with Bronwyn Bishop: Playlist from June 4, 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).

Evenin' folks, how y'all? <<Kay Kyser catchphrase
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:05pm Webhamster Henry:

You can do a whole show with cringy stereotyped "Chinese" music tropes.
  Swag For Life Member 7:07pm brendangen:

Just discovered that the song that I always assumed was a Muppet song, "Just One Person," is actually a Snoopy the Musical song.
Avatar 7:09pm Andrew Hollywood:

this is making me wish that Nina Simone and John Jacob Niles had a duet.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:11pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Hi everyone!! @Andrew: that would have been BEAUTIFUL
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:11pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Henry: my fav about that is that they use the "Chinese" sound for a song set in the South Pacific, like wtf orchestrator
Avatar 🎭 7:13pm Listener Gregory:

Darn, I missed the Andrews Sisters!
Avatar 🎭 7:15pm Listener Gregory:

Is this the same as the comedian Professor Irwin Corey?
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:15pm Webhamster Henry:

It is indeed!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:17pm Webhamster Henry:

Irwin Corey + Yma Sumac - a winning combo! #notsincecarrie
Avatar 7:20pm Andrew Hollywood:

Did anyone catch the Mel Brooks episodes of Curb Your Enthusiasm? thumbs up
Avatar 🎭 7:26pm Listener Gregory:

The playlist seems far behind today.
Avatar 🎭 7:34pm Listener Gregory:

@WebhamsterH, your avatar is really something today!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:36pm Webhamster Henry:

@Gregory it's a version of a bumper I made in the 90s for WFMU-TV, a crazy Public Access show put on by Mark Rudolph.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:36pm Webhamster Henry:

[yeah, I wrote the animation program too]
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:37pm Sweet Corn Lizzie:

It goes with the happy spring music, @WebhamsterH!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:37pm melinda:

hi all
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:38pm diciassette:

ahoy!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:39pm Webhamster Henry:

I played the Ella and Ella & Louis Songbook records a whole lot.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:48pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Gregory, Lizzie, Melinda, diciassette, gang's all here!!
Avatar 🎭 7:53pm Listener Gregory:

I would have bet a quarter that "Heat Wave" was written by Cole Porter. I guess that's why I'm broke!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:54pm Bronwyn Bishop:

It was written by that other really clever guy
Avatar 🎭 8:00pm Listener Gregory:

"A New Brain" does not sound like a promising musical title to me. Images of the transplant operating room are coming to mind. Ugh!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:01pm Bronwyn Bishop:

It's about the time William Finn had brain surgery so you're pretty much right!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:01pm Webhamster Henry:

A New Brain is actually really good - kind of autobiographical.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:01pm doctorjazz:

Hi all!
Avatar 🎭 8:01pm Listener Gregory:

Interesting!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:06pm Webhamster Henry:

I hope Noel Coward's "I Hate the Spring" is in this show somewhere.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:09pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Hi doctorjazz!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:10pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Henry: While Noel will make an appearance, it won't be that song lol
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:12pm doctorjazz:

Looking back at the 1st hour, that was a good'n I missed! Will need to catch up on the archives.
Avatar 🎭 8:13pm Listener Gregory:

@BB, I am considering writing a play about my split-brain operation, but I am of two minds about it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:13pm Bronwyn Bishop:

lollllllllllllllll
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:18pm Webhamster Henry:

I think I have a recording of Theresa Stratas singing Blame It On The Summer Night somewhere.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:19pm Webhamster Henry:

110 in the Shade : the Climate Change Musical
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:21pm Webhamster Henry:

Here's I Hate Spring definitively sung by Bea Lillie: www.youtube.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:33pm melinda:

Aw, I love Frog and Toad
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:36pm Webhamster Henry:

Seek Arnold Lobel's reading of the Frog & Toad books!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:50pm northguineahills:

Been listening on my phone, but had to duck out in b/tn T-storms to get some food...
Avatar 🎭 8:54pm Listener Gregory:

Is If/Then a musical about computer programming? Seriously.
Avatar 🎭 8:55pm Listener Gregory:

Spring Can Really Hang You up the Most www.youtube.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:55pm northguineahills:

Thanks, Bronwyn!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:57pm Webhamster Henry:

If/Then is a show where the same character takes two different paths through her life in the first and second acts.
Avatar 🎭 8:57pm Listener Gregory:

Ah, like the film Sliding Doors.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:58pm Bronwyn Bishop:

thank YOU ngh!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:58pm Webhamster Henry:

The computer version would be if/then/else or better: try/catch/finally.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:58pm diciassette:

Yes, they forgot the Else. Thanks Bronwyn!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:58pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Apparently there was a playbill insert in the If/Then playbill that said something like "yes we know this is similar to Sliding Doors"
Avatar 🎭 8:58pm Listener Gregory:

"Something special" may be on for next week? Something special happens every week on this show. Thanks for a great one, BB.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:59pm Bronwyn Bishop:

aw thanks Gregory!!!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:59pm Webhamster Henry:

Nice theme and great selections!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 9:00pm Webhamster Henry:

if you do a Gay Pride show, don't forget to lead with "It's Not Just For Gays Anymore"
