Options Acid Jazz Hands with Bronwyn Bishop: Playlist from February 18, 2022 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).

Sondheim showing off his skill at pastiche and parody!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:07pm Webhamster Henry:

I blow you a keees!
Avatar 🎭 7:15pm Listener Gregory:

So it's Acid Jazz Hands—all the hits all the time?
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:17pm diciassette:

Were there technical difficulties? I've had a gummy so it's difficult for me to tell.
Avatar 🎭 7:18pm Listener Gregory:

Do NOT adjust your set! We control the horizontal, the vertical, and the caterpillars crawling out of the speakers.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:22pm Webhamster Henry:

Yazbek is one of Brain Woodbury's stable of performers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:22pm Bronwyn Bishop:

I wish David Yazbek was one of my stable of performers
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:23pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@diciassette: uh oh, which technical difficulties?
Avatar 🎭 7:23pm TonyR:

Any idea what EACH caterpillar costs? This show will never make any money.
Avatar 🎭 7:23pm Listener Gregory:

The Acid Jazz gummy line is going to take this show into the black and make it WFMU's biggest money-maker!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:24pm diciassette:

I think any technical difficulties were my own, but as I said I've had a gummy!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:27pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Gregory: I like your thinking!! Are acid gummies a thing??
Avatar 🎭 7:28pm TonyR:

Edible Cats.
Avatar 🎭 7:28pm Listener Gregory:

I bow to @diciassette's expertise here. I am only the money manager.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:29pm WR:

I wonder if that song had anything to do with the screen names Scraps chose. Haven't seen him in a while.
Avatar 🎭 7:29pm Listener Gregory:

If you want to be successful, don't get high on your own caterpillars. Everyone says so.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:30pm diciassette:

Edible Cats, probably not; Editable Cats, maybe; Acid Cats, yes!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:30pm Bronwyn Bishop:

To paraphrase Beach Boy Bruce Johnston, the only drugs I do are show tunes
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:31pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@WR: I miss Scraps :(((
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:31pm diciassette:

Scraps! Come in please!
Avatar 🎭 7:34pm Listener Gregory:

@BB, are these really hits? I only recognize The Full Monty.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:35pm diciassette:

There was this TV program called Bunheads, which also had Kelly Bishop in it (no relation, if I remember correctly). I really like Sutton Foster.
  7:43pm Listener Gregory:

Hit = not totally obscure. Good explanation!
I think a libertarian party is a good experience to have… once.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:45pm diciassette:

We have a libertarian hot dog stand here in the east bay, full of propoganda all over the walls to read while you put the hot dog in. I think it's very interesting.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:51pm Bronwyn Bishop:

They were all very nice to be fair
  7:53pm Listener Gregory:

There are a number of countries where the legal and governmental systems have completely broken down, and I invite any libertarian to live there and enjoy it to the full.
Avatar 🎭 7:54pm Roberto:

Lol a Libertarian Party party.
Avatar 7:58pm HyperDose:

Evening, Bronwyn and thespians!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:00pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Hey HyperDose :D
Avatar 🎭 8:00pm TonyR:

The Libertarian caterpillars sure joined the stage union quickly enough.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:02pm Webhamster Henry:

This track (Of Thee I Sing, Baby) is dedicated to those Libertarians.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:03pm diciassette:

TonyR, where do I learn about the stage union? I am kind of on a union/government/mafia kick.
Avatar 🎭 8:05pm TonyR:

AFAIK, there are several different unions in play (npi). As incidental animals, I don't know which union the Libertarian Caterpillars would crawl to.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:05pm diciassette:

I really like this April in Paris bed music. It's like eating a croissant!
Avatar 🎭 8:06pm TonyR:

I got lost. Which was the song Kurt Cobain said he liked? I didn't know whether BB was back-announcing or teasing.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:08pm Webhamster Henry:

Uh-oh Stream hiccup
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:08pm diciassette:

These dang gummies
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:08pm Webhamster Henry:

.. and it's back
  8:08pm Listener Gregory:

I have always assumed that all Drummer Stream listeners are listening in a cave. Was I wrong?
Avatar 🎭 8:09pm Roberto:

Kurt liked the closeted gay guy song, apparently.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:09pm diciassette:

I thought it was that one as well.
Avatar 🎭 8:10pm Roberto:

dici, your gummies have leaked into the steam.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:10pm Webhamster Henry:

Give the drummer some Gummies.
  8:11pm Listener Gregory:

The stream battling the acid caterpillars. Who will win?
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:11pm diciassette:

Ah! Now that's more like it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:12pm Bronwyn Bishop:

what was the issue, is it still happening?
  8:12pm Listener Gregory:

Now I actually don’t know which one I’m hearing.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:12pm diciassette:

If you hear Italian, you're doing OK!
Avatar 🎭 8:12pm TonyR:

I enjoy Acid Jazz Hands.. in bed.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:13pm diciassette:

I guess the default stream has been popping in and out.
Avatar 🎭 8:13pm TonyR:

.... or you're having a stroke.
  8:18pm Listener Gregory:

If the show did not give way to the stream from time to time, we would not appreciate it nearly as much! QED
Thank you, Professor Pangloss

C'est lui
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:22pm Webhamster Henry:

A hymn to him, Himself that is.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:22pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Lord give me the confidence of a mediocre knight of the round table
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:23pm diciassette:

Eileen Rodgers sounds taller than Robert Goulet
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:24pm Webhamster Henry:

This was clearly written for Ethel Merman.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:26pm diciassette:

I want a pair of Cole Porter elevator shoes
  8:32pm Listener Gregory:

The piano accompaniment to these demos is often so good.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:33pm diciassette:

Ah, yes. I seem to have that on one of my AJH premiums. Talk about a hit!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:36pm diciassette:

The hotel I stayed when in Hollywood was called the Roosevelt, but not after the Roosevelt in Annie.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:38pm solo mon:

Here w the moonshine jug.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:40pm solo mon:

Aw shoot I missed Candide- one of my favorites!
  8:41pm Listener Gregory:

Smart! I paid $20 for a glass of champagne from the concession at intermission.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:44pm diciassette:

When you mix Bollinger and moonshine it's called a Bolli-?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:44pm solo mon:

Roz!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:44pm diciassette:

^ aye!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:46pm solo mon:

I love name check songs. The one in Bells Are Ringing is great too.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:46pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Hi, Bronwyn and B-hops!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:47pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@solo mon: Betty & Adolph were so good at this kind of thing
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:48pm Webhamster Henry:

I can just imagine them writing this at 4 am as some party was winding down.
  8:52pm Listener Gregory:

Exquisite corpse was invented by the original Surrealists in the 20s, like Duchamp.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:52pm Webhamster Henry:

www.artsy.net...
  8:55pm Listener Gregory:

You New Yorkers can go to the Paul Kasmin Gallery in Chelsea to see a show of exquisite corpse productions, through the 26th. Enjoy!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:58pm diciassette:

Thanks Ms B
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:58pm Webhamster Henry:

"... in our audience tonight.... Ed Sullivan!"
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:59pm WR:

Thank you! Bronwyn!

And thank you for the Paul Kasmin Gallery rec Listener Gregory!
  8:59pm Listener Gregory:

Thanks for a great show, Ms Bishop! Hits are not all bad.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:59pm Webhamster Henry:

Well this was a diverting evening in the theatre!
  9:00pm Listener Gregory:

@Webhamster H, I really hope they did that!
