Options Acid Jazz Hands with Bronwyn Bishop: Playlist from June 12, 2020 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).

Hope your move went OK

Hello! I feel like there was a Busby Berkeley production that goes with the first song.

Whoa Jerry Orbach was handsome

HELLO EVERYONE! I am back after spending the last couple of weeks moving back to NYC!! I am now in my first ever roommateless apartment on the Upper East Side
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:14pm Jim the Poet:

Whoa, congrats!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:14pm diciassette:

Congratulations!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:15pm Cmurtha in Amerikkka:

Glad the move went well!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:15pm Bronwyn Bishop:

I just want to apologize for the fact that this show makes no mention of the most important movement of our time which is BLACK LIVES MATTER! This show was already put together before the move and I have been very busy BUT that is not a good excuse and I should have made the time. SO next week please tune in to a show that will spotlight the genius Black composers and lyricists of musical theatre!!!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:18pm WR:

whoa, the playlist not opening for a few minutes made me sad and concerned. You can disregard the the scathing FMU message I sent about you reneging on 90 years of Acid Jazz Hands.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:22pm WR:

Will you be getting set up to record your show in your new digs?
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:24pm doctorjazz:

Welcome Back Bronwyn!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:26pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@WR: Yes I will!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:26pm Bronwyn Bishop:

hey doctorjazz!!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:29pm doctorjazz:

Cool, made it back to Manhattan. Has the population rebounded some?
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:29pm WR:

I have several excuses for my confusion thinking no new AJH show this evening (link in the drummer daily email pointing to Larry's guest show last week...), but will spare all and focus on enjoying the show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:31pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@doctorjazz: it is swingin!! somehow. I go for a 2 mile walk every day at 5:30 and the streets are full of people getting takeout drinks from bars (yes, takeout drinks!)
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:39pm Webhamster Henry:

I saw "After You, Mr. Hyde" in 1968 at the Goodspeed. There have been lots of J&H's since!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:42pm Julie P.:

Hi Bronwyn! Checking out your show for the first time. I'm a sucker for soundtracks and show tunes!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:45pm Cmurtha in Amerikkka:

There is a LOT going on in this song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:46pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Henry: I have never heard of After You Mr. Hyde and now I am intrigued
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:47pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Hey Julie, welcome to the show!! Thanks for listening!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:47pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@cmurtha: It's a busy one. Group numbers are very tough to write and I applaud anyone who can write a comprehensible one
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:03pm Cmurtha in Amerikkka:

This melody is so, so similar to something else. Secret Agent Man? What is it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:06pm Bronwyn Bishop:

It does sound familiar- I was wondering about that myself and came to the conclusion that it just sounds very similar to a lot of things. Like kind of a generic bluesy rock "get down" song
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:08pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Ok Cmurtha I just listened to Secret Agent Man and it is IDENTICAL. Oy
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:08pm Bronwyn Bishop:

the verse, not the chorus
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:11pm Julie P.:

Which song are you talking about again? I missed something and will have to go back to the archive later.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:12pm Webhamster Henry:

"it's Still Billy Joel To Me" -- "Weird" Al Yankovic
Sing it yerself!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:15pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Henry: That is one of the only truly funny Weird Al songs IMO, I wish he'd be mean more often
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:15pm Julie P.:

Thank you! I will check it out!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:16pm Jim the Poet:

Most Weird Al songs aren't funny, but they are better than the originals
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:20pm Webhamster Henry:

I haven't seen the Into The Woods movie either!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:23pm Bronwyn Bishop:

post-quarantine AJH movie night??
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:23pm Bronwyn Bishop:

I do want to have an AJH meetup someday
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:25pm Jim the Poet:

sing-along meet-up
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:26pm Webhamster Henry:

Let's Put On A Show! All karaoke to keep the costs down.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:27pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Love it!!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:35pm Sweet Corn Lizzie:

Hi folk! My mom saw Jerry Orbach in Broadway shows in his heyday (shows that came to California) and adored him, then loved him on Law & Order. He's great.

Bronwyn I understand about the timing of the show and BLM. You're sharing the work of many great black artists. Thank you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:37pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Thank you for your understanding :) Next week is going to be great!! It will feature great work from Eubie Blake, Duke Ellington, Mbongeni Ngema, Melvin van Peebles, Charlie Smalls, Micki Grant & more!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:48pm doctorjazz:

Been Great dinner company, thanks, Bronwyn!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:48pm Sweet Corn Lizzie:

Since discovering your show I've shared it with all the show tune people I know and they're listening too.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:49pm doctorjazz:

My actor daughter is loving it (and singing along...)
  8:50pm Doug Schulkind:

Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:58pm Jim the Poet:

I didn't know OT was even possible
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:58pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:59pm diciassette:

Thanks Bronwyn! Happy to hear that you're back in NYC and also that there will be OT
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:59pm Bronwyn Bishop:

This song is a great one to put in the headphones while wandering around post-pandemic Times Square
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:59pm Bronwyn Bishop:

do it if you dare
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:59pm Bronwyn Bishop:

thank YOU diciassette! im very happy to be back on my wacky island
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 9:07pm Webhamster Henry:

Thanks for the show! We'll catch up some other time.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 10:15pm WR:

Was listening all the way to the end but was walking to the ATM and then to the Mexican food cart to buy dinner so wasn't watching the comments. Which tune were you saying to listen to while walking around Times Square? And great to have you back on. Thank you.
  8:15am ?:

The one that’s good Times Square listening (specifically good post pandemic Times Square listening) is “the American Dream”
  8:15am BronwynB:

Whoops forgot to sign in but that was me!
