Options Acid Jazz Hands with Bronwyn Bishop: Playlist from November 12, 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).

I am always swing-driven. I even sleep in one of those baby rocker things.

Good evening, Ladies and Gentlemen!
Avatar 🎭 7:04pm Listener Gregory:

BTW, Bronwyn, the sound level decreased greatly when Bunny came on, fwiw.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:04pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Hi Gregory and Henry!! :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:04pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Gregory: this is my curse, I can't get it to play louder for some reason, it is at top volume
  7:06pm ndissinger:

Best version of I can’t get started. incredible solo - I think bunny was drunk out of his mind.
Avatar 🎭 7:11pm Listener Gregory:

BB, turns out I can make my radio louder! Very convenient.
Avatar 🎭 7:19pm Listener Gregory:

This vocal (Speak Low) is a bit too dreamy for me.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:19pm WR:

Hello Bronwyn and folks. Starting work in a few minutes, so will catch this swing-driven episode from the archive. Laters.

I in fact found myself dancing with my wife around the table. Great fun... until I realized I'm not married. And I live alone. So, who IS this woman??
Avatar 🎭 7:32pm Listener Gregory:

When you dance you're charming and you're gentle,
Especially when you do the Continental.

Hi BB and BBies

Loved that Ethel song. That’s new to me.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:44pm doctorjazz:

The Berrigan version of I Can't Get Started is terrific, but I'm partial to Dizzy Gillespie's version (which is a different animal...heard it before I heard Berrigan's)

Missed Miss Merman! Oh, well.

Do you have ARBies? ;)

To be Frank, it was a lesser Loesser.
Avatar 🎭 8:06pm Listener Gregory:

Also, Eck-stine, not steen.
Avatar 🎭 8:12pm Listener Gregory:

You have painted yourself into a corner now, BB, because nothing else you play will swing as much as Benny et al. This is the ultimate. @doc will back me up on this. (I hope.)
Avatar 🎭 8:13pm TonyR:

Your tasty bits. [gasp] Miss Lena!

Avatar 🎭 8:27pm Listener Gregory:

Well, the Aussies are TRYING to swing…
Avatar 🎭 8:42pm Listener Gregory:

These cuts are indeed deep.
  8:48pm Filip:

Seems that your volume for music is set quite low. Once you start talking your voice comes very loud. Could you crank up the volume on music at least by couple notches?
Avatar 🎭 8:56pm Listener Gregory:

Great show, Bronwyn. I heard a number of new things too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:59pm Bronwyn Bishop:

thanks!! :)
