Options Acid Jazz Hands with Bronwyn Bishop: Playlist from October 22, 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).

Grim Grinning Ghosts come out to Socialize ... on the Acid Jazz Hands Chat Board.
  7:02pm Listener Robert:

I remember that from the General Electric Pavilion at the 1964-5 NY World's Fair. It was the bumper music as the audience rotated around the animatronic act.
Avatar 🎭 7:02pm Roberto:

Welcome to another rousing edition of Acidic Jazzy Appendages.
  7:03pm Listener Robert:

But with the lyrics.
Avatar 🎭 7:03pm TonyR:

Will it be Brownwyn or an understudy? The crowd is on the edge of their seats until curtain....
  7:04pm Listener Robert:

It was fun to see what appeared to be the stage revolving thru 4 quarters, then get out and realize it'd been the audience rotating.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:04pm WR:

Listener Robert: You went to the NY World's Fair in Flushing Meadows?
  7:05pm Listener Robert:

Sure, and Daddy had been to the one there in 1939-40.

Hi WR, Andrew, Henry, Robert, Roberto and Tony!!! So glad to be back!!!! :D

And from the Carousel of Progress, downstairs on the spiral walkway past the (simulated) nuclear fusion power reactor.

Welcome back, Bronwyn!
Avatar 🎭 7:09pm Listener Gregory:

Good morning, everyone. Great to hear you, Bronwyn! Well, I haven't heard you yet. But I hope to soon.
Avatar 🎭 7:09pm TonyR:

Simulated nuclear ffusion is rotating people!

I was at the 64 World's Fair as well.

Charlottesville killed good, cleaan tiki room fun.
  7:10pm Listener Robert:

Who wasn't? Were you also to Freedomland? We lived near it.
Avatar 🎭 7:11pm TonyR:

Your autobiographical play: "5 miles to Freedomland".
Avatar 🎭 7:12pm TonyR:

That record cover makes Disney so ... dirty.
  7:12pm Listener Gregory:

This is special.
  7:13pm Listener Robert:

Freedomland had a promotional song like that too.
Avatar 🎭 7:13pm TonyR:

Jazzy beatniks!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:13pm Webhamster Henry:

I was at the 65 Worlds fair for my 9th birthday!
  7:14pm Listener Gregory:

@doctorj, I begged my parents to take me to that World’s Fair, and they wouldn’t. I am very bitter about it. Seriously! If you have children, you take on certain responsibilities, and that is one of them.
  7:15pm Listener Robert:

How far away did you live, Gregory?
Avatar 🎭 7:15pm TonyR:

I went to Disney World in 1975, and ached to go on Space Mountain, but the line was too long.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:15pm WR:

1964 I lived in Amarillo TX. Not sure if I was even aware the World's Fair was happening in the USA.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:17pm doctorjazz:

Listener Gregory, my condolences, parents so indeed have responsibilities. As I recall, I went with my family, but also with my school, who arranged a school trip there. Itt WAS a big deal at the time.
  7:20pm Listener Gregory:

We lived in New Jersey. Not an impossible distance from Queens by any means. Never went to Disneyland either, but that is more understandable. Most of my friends never went there either. Disney world opened later.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:20pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Hi doctorjazz and Gregory!!! Loving all these World's Fair memories
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:21pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Hi, Bronwyn B and friends. What's cookin'?
  7:21pm Listener Robert:

Since we lived in the city, we went to the World's Fair at least every other month. I just about memorized some of the exhibits. Freedomland (which was New York's Disneyland) we lived so close to in the Bronx that its first year we could see the fireworks from home; next year some trees had grown up to block the view. So we went to that a lot too.
  7:23pm Listener Robert:

Now I feel even sorrier for you, Gregory, because we frequently went to Freedomland or the World's Fair with our cousins visiting from NJ.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:24pm doctorjazz:

We lived in Brooklyn, which at the time seemed Worlds away from Queens.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:26pm doctorjazz:

Don't fret, LG, mutt parents screwed up in many other ways (and I'm sure I've screwed up in some ways with my kids).
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:26pm diciassette:

Ahoy! We're back!
Avatar 7:26pm ARB:

Bronwyn, what do you think of Disney Bounding?
  7:26pm Listener Gregory:

Listener Robert, your childhood was charmed.
  7:26pm Listener Robert:

And we frequently met or went with Grampa & Grandma from Brooklyn.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:27pm Webhamster Henry:

The WFMU Record Fair was an acceptable Disneyland / World's Fair substitute.
  7:28pm Listener Gregory:

Bronwyn, I strongly advise you not to mention that Disneyland date night idea in your dating profile. Maybe wait for the third date to bring it up. That’s my intuition anyway.
Avatar 7:29pm Andrew Hollywood:

I’ve been to The Tiki Room. I pissed my pants on the Earthquake ride. I almost barfed on the spinning tea cups, but I didn’t.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:29pm Webhamster Henry:

Disney Deepcuts only!
Avatar 7:29pm ARB:

I'm totally there for your all Disney show
Avatar 7:30pm ARB:

Amazing Bronwyn, I love it, I dream of going bounding!
Avatar 🎭 7:30pm TonyR:

Did you have a pencil behind your ear?
  7:31pm Listener Robert:

There WAS NO Disney pavilion at the World's Fair...it seemed like EVERY exhibit was Disney! The Carousel of Progress was in the GE Pavilion. Disney also did the Pepsi pavilion, "Small World", which was later installed at Disneyland (and I understand now was built for Disneyland).
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:32pm Webhamster Henry:

Any Leslie Bricusse tribute tonight?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:33pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Avatar 🎭 7:33pm Listener Gregory:

I put in my dating profile "I do not want to date." Then I got a lot of responses from people saying, "I feel the same way. Want to get together?" So the whole thing backfired on me.
  7:33pm Listener Robert:

And although the maker of Freedomland had previously done Disneyland, he deliberately got his name taken off it as architect when he saw the problems coming with it. He also did one in New Hampshire.

This is before the concept of "theme park" had a name or became generic. Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen is usually credited as the first.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:33pm Bronwyn Bishop:

RIP Leslie, I will get to you next week
  7:36pm Listener Robert:

And many years later, the builder of Co-Op City (former grounds of Freedomland) claimed THAT had always been his plan, and that Freedomland had been a mere place holder for it.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:42pm Webhamster Henry:

Jerry Ross died when he was 29.

[Pajama Game is Adler & Ross, not Frank Loesser]
  7:43pm Listener Robert:

This one I know in French.
  7:46pm Listener Gregory:

Trivia related to musicals: The second daughter of Maria von Trapp recently died in her 90s. As Maria’s daughter, her character wasn’t in the Sound of Music, but still.
Avatar 🎭 7:48pm Roberto:

YNWA -- my late father-in-law's fave Broadway tune (tied with The Quest/The Impossible Dream)
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:48pm doctorjazz:

Out alwaysamazed me the sounds that came out of Gomer Pyle, oops, Jim Nabors, when he sang.
  7:48pm Listener Gregory:

Gollllleeeee! Jim Nabors!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:49pm doctorjazz:

*It Always amazed me...
  7:57pm Listener Gregory:

@doctorj, On variety shows he would play the Gomer Pyle persona and two seconds later be a baritone crooner. I also found it very jarring.

Wow! Really surprised that your show tunes immersion occurred so relatively recently.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:25pm Bronwyn Bishop:

well i always loved musicals, but i didn't develop the obsession/expertise until about 2018 (although i started writing musicals in 2010)

Eileen Farrell recorded for Reference Recordings, a label well known to audiophiles for terrific sounding recordings.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:43pm doctorjazz:

Pretty Ellington in the background...
  8:50pm Listener Gregory:

Will equal time be given to the anti-music position?
  8:53pm Listener Robert:

I suppose with Stan Rogers that's about eastern and western Canada.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:56pm doctorjazz:

Thank, Bronwyn, loved the show!
Avatar 🎭 8:57pm Listener Gregory:

Stan Rogers! I haven't heard him in decades (and I realize I didn't in that cut). I now remember that song from one of his albums. A great performer/songwriter who died far too early in a terrible plane crash.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:57pm StringOFperils:

Stan goes way back to the 70s
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:57pm Mx. Baba Bee (e/they):

Thanks, Bronwyn!
Avatar 🎭 8:58pm Listener Gregory:

I heard Stan when I was in school. He died in '83 at the age of 33. Really awful.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:58pm StringOFperils:

And Stan is real, whereas Come From Away is kind of crass
Avatar 🎭 8:58pm Listener Gregory:

Great show, Bronwyn. Thanks so much.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:58pm Mx. Baba Bee (e/they):

A perfect segue to Cha Cha Heels! :-) Who knew Lenny Bruce could sing???
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:59pm WR:

Thank you Bronwyn! muah!
