Favoriting Acid Jazz Hands with Bronwyn Bishop: Playlist from October 22, 2021 Favoriting

Bronwyn Bishop's avatar View Bronwyn Bishop's profile Favoriting

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).

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.

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.

@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.

I went to Disney World in 1975, and ached to go on Space Mountain, but the line was too long.

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.

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.

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

We lived in Brooklyn, which at the time seemed Worlds away from Queens.

The WFMU Record Fair was an acceptable Disneyland / World's Fair substitute.

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.

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).

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

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.

@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.
