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).

Listener comments!

Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 6:49pm Doug Schulkind:

Hey there, AJH fans! Bronwyn is stuck on the subway and will be a little late. Hang out a bit and she'll get here as soon as the travel gods allow.
Avatar 🎭 7:10pm Listener Gregory:

Whew! I thought I was the late one.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:11pm Bronwyn Bishop:

HI DARLINGS!!!!! So sorry for the delay. We will go into sweet sweet OT to make up for it
Avatar 🎭 7:13pm Listener Gregory:

Hey, BB!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:18pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Could you all hear that mic break ok? I was getting a weird feedback thing in the headphones
Avatar 🎭 7:20pm Listener Gregory:

I heard the mic break perfectly, but Randy is very soft compared to that and Dolly. Next song is fine.
Avatar 🎭 7:21pm Listener Gregory:

Also, what is the musical that the Newman song is from??? Never heard of it. His "Faust" is truly wonderful, IMHO.
Avatar 🎭 7:33pm Listener Gregory:

BB, can you say something about the Randy Newman musical? I really would like to know.
Excellent mic break, by the way.
  7:34pm diciassette:

everyone may be late but I’m the latest (so far). Ahoy!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:39pm WR:

Listener Gregory, from wikipedia Randy Newman page:
A revue of Newman's songs, titled Maybe I'm Doing It Wrong, was performed at the Astor Place Theatre in New York City in 1982, and later at other theaters around the country. The New York cast featured Mark Linn-Baker and Deborah Rush,[37] and at one point included Treat Williams.[38]
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:41pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Thanks WR!! Sorry for the lack of context Gregory, I am very discombobulated this evening
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:41pm doctorjazz:

Hi-far company, on the way to Tanglewood to hear some jazz, nice warm up!
Avatar 7:41pm DL in LA:

Bronwyn, I heard Jerusalem Demsas on the Ezra Klein podcast recently, and she talks as fast as you do!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:42pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Hey diciassette and doctorjazz!!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:42pm WR:

I hadn't known about Newman doing a version of Faust. Thank you for mentioning it Listener Gregory, something else on my list.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:43pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Hey DL great to have you here!! And great to have more fast talking representation!
Avatar 🎭 7:46pm Listener Gregory:

Thanks much, @WR. Newman's Faust is a real musical, with a distinguished cast, from Linda Ronstadt to James Taylor. Very witty, especially if you read his liner notes.
Avatar 🎭 7:47pm Listener Gregory:

@doctorj, enjoy Branford et al.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:48pm Bronwyn Bishop:

I played something from RN's Faust during my Halloween show :)
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:51pm WR:

You did and looking back I see I did listen to the program, getting forgetful in my dotage.
Avatar 🎭 7:56pm Listener Gregory:

Fascinating story about Fats Waller and Sunny Side. It doesn't sound like a Waller song to me, but he certainly was an accomplished songwriter.
Avatar 🎭 7:58pm Listener Gregory:

This bad boy sounds truly bad. Completely egregious.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:00pm WR:

the music volume is very very low for me now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:01pm melinda:

hi everyone
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:02pm spodiodi:

Hello, Bronwyn and everyone
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:02pm doctorjazz:

Music was low in the car as well.
Got a nice seat in the shed (family decided to rest or eat, about to start, laters all!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:05pm doctorjazz:

Great band,c Branford Marsalis, Ryan Kisor, Marcus Printup, Ted Nash, Victor Goines, Sherman Irby, bye!
Avatar 8:07pm HyperDose:

What have I stumbled upon? A gathering of people! 😃
Avatar 🎭 8:07pm Listener Gregory:

Interesting to see a song where Ira Gershwin is the third listed lyricist. Maybe he added or updated lyrics? Usually he doesn't need much help.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:11pm melinda:

I thought of another great 70s movie: Car Wash! dynamite soundtrack too.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:13pm WR:

Hi HyperDose.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:15pm spodiodi:

Billy Murray! i thought he sounded a lot like Billy Nurray! (have always loved his song "K-K-K-Katy") (then i looked at the playlist once your mic break was on)
thanks for playing that~
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:16pm spodiodi:

Murray* (not Nurray)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:16pm spodiodi:

i have roots in Appalachian anthracite as well, Bronwyn cheers!
Avatar 🎭 8:17pm Listener Gregory:

I always guessed you were descended from coal miners, so it's good to have this confirmed.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:23pm diciassette:

I remember my penna grandparents having coal candy on top of the fridge
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:26pm spodiodi:

wow what is he singing? ddaaaaayyyymn
Avatar 8:28pm HyperDose:

This goes perfectly with the blaring sirens outside!
Hey WR!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:34pm spodiodi:

thanks, Bronwyn!
  8:34pm ?:

"Jaws" wasn't a flop. But clearly you have noticed this.
Avatar 8:35pm HyperDose:

Lewis Black the comedian?
Avatar 🎭 8:35pm Listener Gregory:

If the Jaws musical has the shark singing (as it certainly should), you must have the horses sing in yours.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:51pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Singing while they get blown up with dynamite
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:51pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Melinda: I will put that on my list! Next up on my list is Saturday Night Fever
Avatar 🎭 8:52pm Listener Gregory:

That Fame song was pretty good, I thought.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:56pm Sweet Corn Lizzie:

I'm late but glad I tuned in. Learning about the Casper musical is why we listen!
Avatar 🎭 8:56pm Listener Gregory:

My Casper memories are before the movie: the Saturday morning cartoon of the 60s. "Casper the friendliest ghost, the friendliest ghost I know," the theme song began. I think every plot was the same.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:58pm Bronwyn Bishop:

We are going into OT tonight to make up for starting late!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:59pm Sweet Corn Lizzie:

Listener Gregory I remember that show. I didn't like it, something was just too weird about it. Sad how everybody was afraid of Casper who just wanted to play, and I didn't like his round bald head.

This number is the opposite - they want Casper to come out and play with them!
Avatar 🎭 9:02pm Listener Gregory:

I guess we're not supposed to think that Casper is a dead child. That might take some of the fun out of it. Yes, @Lizzie, there was something depressing about the show, though it always ended happily. But he would get so dejected... every single episode.
Avatar 🎭 9:03pm Listener Gregory:

I'm fully in favor of overtime, but I hope the show doesn't go to penalty kicks.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 9:04pm Sweet Corn Lizzie:

Exactly - weird and sad.
Avatar 🎭 9:12pm Listener Gregory:

Thanks, BB! I missed you while I was on vacation.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 9:14pm WR:

So envious, I'm not even the king of my closet.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 9:16pm WR:

But nice to picture you singing this as walking along in Manhattan. Thanks for another stellar episode of AJH!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:16pm Bronwyn Bishop:

I just moved into a way better apartment on 90th & 2nd. IM THE KING OF NEW YORK
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:16pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Gregory: I missed you while I was busy moving last week!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:17pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@WR: My other "walking around Manhattan" Newsies pick is the opening number, Carrying the Banner. This thing has a better score than it really should...
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 9:18pm diciassette:

thanks Bronwyn!
