Options Acid Jazz Hands with Bronwyn Bishop: Playlist from May 6, 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).

Liked the sax player on the Connick (had some Ben Webster feel), difficult to find in a quick Google search.

Hi diciassette, Henry, WR, Tony, Dano, Doug and doctorjazz!!!!

@Henry: we've heard from him too of course
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:43pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Dano: Now that I would love to hear!!!
  7:54pm Listener Gregory:

Hello, Darlings! I came in at intermission. I’ll pretend I was here the entire time.
Great opening, Bronwyn!
  7:56pm Roberto:

Coming to you from a PA turnpike off-ramp. Blew me a tire!
  7:56pm Roberto:

My hope is to look back at these comments later and laugh.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:03pm Webhamster Henry:

That wasn't the theme song from Multiverse of Madness?
  8:04pm Listener Gregory:

Is this on the radio or just something running through my head?
  8:07pm Listener Gregory:

@doctorj, maybe Jimmy Greene?
  8:09pm Charles:

In my case talk with the dick is often philisophical in nature.
  8:13pm Listener Gregory:

The dick is often a proponent of utilitarianism, no matter how Kantian you might be.
  8:14pm Listener Gregory:

Also, imagine putting on your resume that you played the part of The Dick in this play. The effect could be quite mixed.

@7:56 @Roberto:
Damn. Hope you can keep warm and safe.

Kalmar & Ruby wrote a lot of Marx Brother song! They were pretty funny, but Three Little Words .. is inaccurate.

Also you HAVE TO HEAR www.discogs.com...

This is one of my favorite songs and performances, BB. (Astaire)
  8:50pm Listener Gregory:

What a shasti? Can anyone interpret?
They don’t write ‘em like this any more.

"What a Chassis!" -- Ol' Banjo Eyes
  8:55pm Listener Gregory:

Thanks, Webhamster! That is pretty explicit.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:59pm Webhamster Henry:

The Rankin Bass Hobbit, that is.
  8:59pm Listener Gregory:

“Nose-harp playing bellboy” looks slightly better on your resumé than “the dick” does.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:59pm diciassette:

I thought "shassy" might be a hyperforeignism, but it looks like they got away with it en.wikipedia.org...

Thanks Bronwyn!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:59pm Jeff Golick:

Thanks, BB!
  9:01pm Listener Gregory:

The second half of the show was wonderful, Bronwyn, and so was the first, which I definitely heard even though no one saw me. Thanks!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 9:03pm WR:

Thank you! Bronwyn! Such an episode you gave us today! Such a variety! From China and India to Cuba and Putnam County. From stout hearts and red garters to Susie chassis and er... talking dicks! Thank you!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 9:03pm Webhamster Henry:

Off to Sardis now I guess. Although with no Cha Cha Heels you can run over a bit these days.
