Options Acid Jazz Hands with Bronwyn Bishop: Playlist from May 20, 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).

Avatar 🎭 7:04pm Listener Gregory:

Hello, Darlings! I believe I saw this film when it came out (Cat Ballou). Combining Stubby Kaye and Nat King Cole is throwing pearls before swine.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:06pm doctorjazz:

Hey, Bronwyn and you Broadway Bound folks!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:07pm doctorjazz:

Last legs of cooking dinner, got the sound up high!

Hello! This guy sounds a LOT like Raúl Esparza

Hi everyone!!!!

Chet Baker sings the heck out of Almost Blue in the film Let's Get Lost, not long before his death.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:14pm Bronwyn Bishop:

I must check that out!!
Avatar 🎭 7:15pm Listener Gregory:

The sounds of Bill Evans apparent here. (I hope.)
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:16pm diciassette:

I found Chet Baker sitting in a bathtub in an Italian rock and roll movie, one time.

(wearing a suit, of course)
Avatar 🎭 7:18pm Listener Gregory:

I can confirm that southern Vermont has been beautiful, sunny, and warm all day. May heat wave starts tomorrow.
Avatar 🎭 7:22pm Listener Gregory:

They would have to change the title, BB, maybe something like "Free To Be You and Me... Whoa! Not so Fast, You Floridians!"

Latecomer seating
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:25pm Webhamster Henry:

I'm glad you got to Songs My Mother Never Sang - it's amazing. I especially like "There's a Girl In The Heart of Wheeling, West Virginia With a Watch That Belongs To Me!"
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:31pm diciassette:

Webhamster Henry, I believe you induced me to purchase said record on discogs. I still haven't fired it up, and having missed the first two songs of this show it's still a complete wildcard!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:33pm Webhamster Henry:

@dicassette it is wild: Zero is the Mostelest!
Avatar 🎭 7:35pm Listener Gregory:

The recording of poor Herb Ellis is problematic on Valentine.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:36pm Bronwyn Bishop:

re: my connecticut jokes: I have been informed that ppl from Connecticut are not Connecticites but rather Connecticutians
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:37pm Webhamster Henry:

This is some cool cat Macheath here.
Avatar 🎭 7:38pm Listener Gregory:

Happy belated Birthday to Ron Carter.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:38pm Webhamster Henry:

As a born Nutmegger, Connecticutian is certainly used.
Avatar 🎭 7:49pm Listener Gregory:

Didn't Doug have a long set of performances of "Music Goes Round and Round" on GTDS a few months ago?
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:51pm Webhamster Henry:

@Listener Gregory yes indeed! wfmu.org...
Avatar 🎭 7:58pm Listener Gregory:

Thanks, Webhamster. February... it seems like just yesterday...

Houston Person is or recently was playing in the NY/NJ area.
  8:16pm Listener Gregory:

Bronwyn, your pronunciation of all these names is impeccable!
  8:30pm Dean:

"Wiener Blut" is Johann Strauss II, isn't it?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:30pm Bronwyn Bishop:

thank u Dean!!
Avatar 🎭 8:31pm Listener Gregory:

Dean, I thought it was a burp after eating a hot dog.
  8:31pm Dean:

That was Strauss's inspiration.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:32pm doctorjazz:

LG, you're too polite...😂
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:34pm doctorjazz:

Strauss was my 1st thought as well (but I'm far from knowledgeable in that area-not Weiner Blut, of course...)
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:55pm doctorjazz:

Getting to the end of the road, enjoyed the show, thanks, Bronwyn! Nice weekend, all!
Avatar 🎭 8:56pm TonyR:

"Dan Danger"
Avatar 🎭 8:58pm Listener Gregory:

I lived through the 70s, and I was embarrassed by the decade right then, believe me.
Avatar 🎭 8:58pm TonyR:

What part of "ROCKING THE NATION" didn't you understand?
Avatar 🎭 8:59pm Listener Gregory:

We need a musical about the life of Dan Danger, BB. Your next project! Thanks a lot for an excellent show.
Avatar 🎭 8:59pm TonyR:

Thank U, BB.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:59pm Webhamster Henry:

Thanks Bronwyn! till nest time! I'm a tempeh Reuben kind of guy.
Avatar 🎭 9:00pm TonyR:

Was "Dan Danger" a punk rocker??
Avatar 🎭 9:01pm Listener Gregory:

Tony, his middle name was also Danger.
