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).

Nothing weird, please, Bronwyn. My stomach is a bit iffy tonight.

Bud Deckelman was pretty weird but I'm sure you are up to topping it.

At the grill, but listening.

Beatles cover?(don't think they made it to Broadway)

And my marathon swag came today! My AJH "Sondheim Unplugged" prize! My AJH premium download code! My oven mitt! My apron! And I completed my first week of actual paid work since July 2021. Yay me. Yay 'FMU.

I thought I could smell that someone in the neighborhood is grilling.

Surely there was a "Beatlemania" Original Cast Recording?

Just a bootleg. Not surprised.

I was taken to "Beatlemania" at a very young age. The colors and costumes for the "Sgt. Pepper" stuff was great, but I remember little else.
Avatar 🎭 7:18pm TonyR:

I keep forgettin' my darn mask when I go outside. Always gotta circle back, 'cause it ain't over.

Covid hits Brownwyn and Mick Jagger. Hmmmm....
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:19pm WR:

You can go as late as you wish tonight.

Sure, quarantining in Rockford Ill. Sounds like a cover story.

Tell the affiliates we're goin' long!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:20pm WR:

Hope it was only the station keys that you lost.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:21pm doctorjazz:

Went to see the Beatles cover brunch at The City Winery, was fun. They did the costume change bit and played the music convincingly. Was fun.
Avatar 🎭 7:23pm TonyR:

Ronnie Spector could not be stopped from performing her Phil-powned hits in concert performance, but there is no safe harbor for repurposing as part of a theatrical presentation, as she discovered Phil was able to say "No", forcing her to drop several of her most famous tunes from her theatrical/cabaret reminiscence show.
Avatar 🎭 7:24pm TonyR:

Philly has a McCityWinery now. Went up right a the beginning of plague, and is still running. Tiny.
Avatar 🎭 7:26pm Listener Gregory:

I had to go to Toronto for a wedding last week, so I wonder if you and I drove in parallel at some point, BB. Also, I just began to wonder whether my iffy stomach means I caught something on the trip...
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:26pm doctorjazz:

Was in Cleveland last week, they have a lot of footage of live Beatles from the rooftop concert (large screen, good sound, was captivating). That was post Sgt Pepper, but they had simplified the music to enable live performance.
Avatar 🎭 7:26pm TonyR:

@WR: IK,R? I checked my checking account balance at the ATM, and I was not used to the sensation of a surprise uptick in the available balance.
Avatar 🎭 7:43pm Listener Gregory:

Ray Conniff was a trombone player. I saw dozens of his albums in my youth and had no inkling of that.

The wet mills of your mind.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:52pm WR:

Nearly every movie in India is a musical. And the few that are not, have songs in the foreground of the soundtrack.
Avatar 🎭 7:55pm TonyR:

And yet, SOMEBODY approved "All This and World War II"

I ::heart:: the Spanish Bizarre label design.
Avatar 🎭 7:59pm Listener Gregory:

Strangely, Bronwyn, without trying to you have almost perfectly recapitulated the Grammy telecast!
Avatar 🎭 8:02pm TonyR:

For a Grammy telecast, you need at least one braying jackass, so CHECK!
  8:06pm Dean:

Shoot, missed the Lata. Last week I visited a local Indian market with a supply of classical and Bollywood in the back. Picked up a couple live Lata performances, a recital by Nikhil Banerjee, Dagar Brothers, and Bhimsen Joshi.

BB went all Transpacific Sound Paradise on our ass.

Ooh. The most glamorous DECCA variation of them all!

Don't know who are what this is, but it sounds like the real deal.
Avatar 🎭 8:15pm Listener Gregory:

Bronwyn's tale of Rockford woe + my iffy stomach + a mild fever + returning from a wedding made me take a Covid home test. Negative! I think that means I have some garden variety bug. @doctorj, please diagnose and prescribe an instant cure, thx.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:17pm doctorjazz:

Dinner done, listening while eating, now can relax.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:20pm WR:

Interesting Dean on finding those. I live next to a "Little India" commercial area. Several blocks of all Indian, Pakistan, Nepal, Bengali businesses. Used to be 6 or 8 stores dedicated to DVDs and CDs and several more that had a selection. Pretty much none now, one place that has a selection of classical and devotional CDs and a couple of phone stores that have a table of stuff that has been sitting in the sun for years. I assume the market all moved online, streaming and download.
Avatar 🎭 8:21pm Listener Gregory:

@doctorj, no relaxing! Read my post!!
Avatar 🎭 8:23pm Listener Gregory:

The cut I identified as "the real deal" was the Fletcher Henderson one. That band was one of the very best large jazz bands of its time. We probably heard Coleman Hawkins on tenor. (Known as "the inventor of the tenor saxophone," for non-jazz readers.)
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:26pm doctorjazz:

So sorry to read about it, LG! "Iffy stomach" generally calls for a very light diet, tea, crackers, soup/broth, rice, banana, toast, that sort of stuff. Nothing greasy, fried, spicy (generally the fun foods) for a day or so. Mylanta sometimes is helpful, generally it is just a bit of time.
Bill is in the mail...
Avatar 🎭 8:28pm Listener Gregory:

I also found one of those desiccant packages in my Covid test. I never remember whether I am supposed to eat it *before* or *after* taking the test. I did a little of both.
  8:31pm Dean:

The store near me, WR, seems to be interested in holding inventory for those of us who care. But there are a few other similar stores in the area that I haven't explored.
Avatar 🎭 8:34pm Listener Gregory:

I don't remember La Fanette from the cast album, BB, though it's listed as being in the show. Maybe it didn't fit on the album?
Avatar 🎭 8:35pm Listener Gregory:

Nope, it *is* on the cast album. Strange. I heard that record many times.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:36pm doctorjazz:

Fletcher Henderson was pivotal in early jazz. In addition to Coleman Hawkins, he had different jazz stars come through the orchestra, including Louis Armstrong (who's said to have left Henderson because he wouldn't allow Louis to sing-what an error), Roy Eldridge, Benny Carter, Henry "Red" Allen, Doc Cheatham, and many others, and pioneered the sound of big band jazz. He later went on (when his band folded, he wasn't a star) to arrange for Benny Goodman.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:40pm doctorjazz:

My wife received a text this afternoon from the New Jersey Dept of Health, warning her that her phone was noted to be near the phone of someone who tested positive for COVID for 15 or more minutes, so likely she was exposed. That's it; no information on when or where it happened, for instance. She's fine, and tested negative, but doesn't recall if she ever signed up for these warnings (I didn't get one). It's a bit creepy...
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:43pm WR:

Sorry guys, by the time that Henderson recording was made, Coleman Hawkins was no longer in the band. Was Ben Webster on tenor, no slouch Mr. Webster. Gonna go all Stork on yas.

Avatar 🎭 8:44pm Listener Gregory:

Fortunately all that information will only be used for good purposes, @doctorj.
Thanks for the info, WR. Agreed that little is lost when you add Ben Webster to your band, no matter who he's replacing.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:47pm doctorjazz:

Nice, WR; good Storking!
By the late 30's, Hawkins was already a star (he had a jukebox hit in 1939). Ben Webster was a good replacement choice, as, early on, he was very much influenced by and sounding like Coleman Hawkins (though later on his sound mellowed and smoothed over, and would never be confused for Hawkins).
Avatar 🎭 8:48pm Listener Gregory:

Believe me, I can confuse all those tenor players if I am just given a chance.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:49pm Bronwyn Bishop:

I myself am very confused
Avatar 🎭 8:50pm Listener Gregory:

It is a temporary condition, Bronwyn, which will only last as long as your life. At least, that is my experience.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:50pm doctorjazz:

It's late to comment, but the announcements are quiet.

The Shulman title isn't the English word "slave." It means Slavic.

Hey Dean!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:54pm doctorjazz:

Still obsessing over the CD player...
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:54pm doctorjazz:

Close to the end, great show, Bronwyn, great to have you back!
  8:55pm AnyaRobert:

Love it! Thanks, Bronwyn. Hope to see you tomorrow! Anya & Robert
  8:55pm Dean:

Hi, doc.

Just received an announcement of new Linn turntable upgrades. A new tonearm I might have to sell cocaine to acquire.

I continue to love my SACD/CD player, from which I expect less than the table these days.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:55pm doctorjazz:

Oh No, not Linn upgrades...I can sell my kids...
  8:56pm Dean:

I know. The arm isn't *that* crazy expensive, but combined with the appropriate bearing and subchassis...ugh.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:58pm doctorjazz:

I did major upgrades maybe 8-10 years ago, afraid to check them out...
  8:59pm Marie:

Hey Bronwyn, loving the show!
Avatar 🎭 9:01pm Listener Gregory:

That was Doug Watkins featured on bass on "Softly..." Did Lee Morgan even play on the cut?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:01pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Anya&Robert: Thanks for listening, looking forward to the show!!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 9:02pm doctorjazz:

Loved that Lee Morgan (Morgan doesn't appear on the track,just bassist Doug Watkins)
You beat me, LG! (It's not nice to beat your doctor...)
and this Etta Jones, great tracks!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 9:04pm doctorjazz:

There's a new Ekos SE, for an exorbitant amount of money, sheesh!
  9:04pm Marie:

don't get bit (by the rat)
  9:05pm Dean:

Just picked up a new collection of Morgan stuff from, of all places, Target. They had a 3 for 2 sale, and I grabbed this:

Avatar 🎭 9:06pm Listener Gregory:

Very nice show, Bronwyn. But if you think you can beat up a NYC subway rat, I'm afraid you might find out the hard way that it isn't so easy. Good luck with the keys!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 9:06pm doctorjazz:

I have that set, Dean (LP and digital download), good stuff (but hard to listen to if you don't break it up quite a bit).
  9:07pm Dean:

I rarely listen to eight discs in a sitting!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 9:07pm doctorjazz:

My daughter was walking in Manhattan, felt a really hard knock and push on her leg, thought it was some person pushing or shoving, turned out is was a rat running into her, which took off in a huff!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:08pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Whenever I hear Gogol Bordello I think of the time in college when there were like 12 of us packed into the little radio studio at midnight and my buddy Chris and I danced wildly to their song American Wedding
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 9:08pm WR:

Yes, Dean, that set is a nice deep dive. Thanks DJ.

And thank you! Bronwyn, a wonderful episode today. Great variety! Great songs! Great performers! Great Host!
