Options Acid Jazz Hands with Bronwyn Bishop: Playlist from August 21, 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).

Hi Bronwyn and first nighters!

everyone watch the howard ashman documentary on disney+, i implore you

truly in the top 10 greatest and most fascinating people in all of humanity
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:11pm Doug Schulkind:

Sorry about that folks. Weird glitch with the stream. I gave it a swift kick.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:11pm Webhamster Henry:

You could play those Bollywood shows you were playing this morning, Doug!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:11pm Bronwyn Bishop:

no worries doug :)))
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:20pm Doug Schulkind:

Back in around 1996, WFMU had a benefit concert in the old Westbeth complex in lowerish Manhattan. We all got there early to set up and perform sound checks for a bunch of the bands. At one point, Paul Simon came down some stairs out of nowhere all fuming and bitching about the noise we were making. He was in an upper practice room working on rehearsals for The Capeman. I will never forget how incredibly assholish he was.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:27pm Webhamster Henry:

I guess he's not a swag-for-lifer.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:28pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Hahaha what a story!!! Yeah I've never heard anything good about either Simon or Garfunkel personality-wise which is a shame considering how beautiful their work together is (don't like their solo careers tho)
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:34pm Webhamster Henry:

Artie used to get arrested for pot in his car up here near Woodstock. It was a tradition!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:36pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Now I want to have a Simon and/or Garfunkel sighting
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:37pm Doug Schulkind:

A friend once got picked up by Art while hitchhiking in Vermont!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:38pm Doug Schulkind:

Art was driving some huge fancy car. I can't remember. A Rolls Royce or a Lincoln Continental or something. My friend reported (this was in the '70s) that Art seemed sad.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:40pm Bronwyn Bishop:

I want to have a drive through Vermont in a Rolls Royce with a sad Art Garfunkel
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:40pm Bronwyn Bishop:

I did once sing backing vocals for Peter Yarrow

Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:49pm WR:

Hi all, listening but still working.
  7:50pm Dean:

I'm sure you're being way too polite, Doug, with the "ish" part.

To my mind/ear/gut, Garfunkel is leaps and bounds the more musical of the two.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:51pm Bronwyn Bishop:

hey WR!!
  7:51pm sim:

Ah, to be in Luxembourg in May.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:53pm doctorjazz:

Down for the Count!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:57pm Bronwyn Bishop:

I used to be super fascinated by Luxembourg as a kid. It's a mini country
  7:57pm sim:

Maybe a WFMU maven can answer this: Why was an Art Garfuncle song in the middle of the Watership Down movie?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:57pm Bronwyn Bishop:

hey doctorjazz!!
  7:58pm sim:

@Brownwyn. Did you draw a crayon map of Luxembourg?
  7:59pm sim:

What's the flat of Luxembourg look like?
  7:59pm sim:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:02pm Bronwyn Bishop:

No but I did give a presentation in Luxembourg in 7th grade. Its flag looks like the French flag turned on its side- it's red on top, white in the middle, blue on the bottom
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:08pm diciassette:

That would make a great cake! Much easier than a French cake.
  8:10pm sim:

Risë Stevens was a babe!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:12pm Webhamster Henry:

Speaking of Guy Bolton, I'd like to suggest "BRING ON THE GIRLS!", the probably rather fictionalized auto bio of P.G. Wodehouse & Guy Bolton about their life in the theatre. It's reallllyy funnny! Limelight Press.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:14pm Bronwyn Bishop:

sounds great :D
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:14pm Webhamster Henry:

Don't buy from Amazon, but here it is: www.amazon.com...
  8:15pm sim:

All I know of PG Wodehouse is Wooster & Jeeves. is "Bring On..." available on Kindle?
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:18pm diciassette:

The Witch of Capri!
Avatar 🎭 8:20pm Listener Gregory:

Minor correction: Wodehouse is pronounced "Woodhouse." Also, "Bring on The Girls" is indeed excellent, as are most Wodehouse books, IMHO.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:21pm Webhamster Henry:

Many if not all the plays mentioned in the book are on Archive.org. archive.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:22pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Thank you Gregory, I had never actually heard anyone say his name out loud before haha
Avatar 🎭 8:22pm Listener Gregory:

I've been listening to the show for some weeks, but it is on when I'm making and eating dinner, so I haven't been commenting. So let me say while I'm here that this is a wonderful show, Bronwyn! You really do a fantastic job.
Avatar 🎭 8:23pm Listener Gregory:

@Bronwyn, I mispronounced it for about 25 years, until "Bertie and Jeeves" made it onto PBS, and the announcer corrected me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:24pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Thank you for the kind words Gregory :D so glad you are enjoying the show!!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:31pm Webhamster Henry:

This song (Let's Evolve) is fun!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:42pm diciassette:

I'm not sure why Let's Evolve made me thing of Napoleon. Maybe it's in the same spirit?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:42pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Let's Evolve is one of those lyrics I wish I'd written. They don't write em like that anymore
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:44pm Webhamster Henry:

I like how you're playing lots of early 20th Century stuff.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:45pm diciassette:

"Napoleon's a pastry

Bismarck is a herring

Alexander's a crème de cacao mixed with rum

Herbie Hoover

is a vac-u-um"
Avatar 🎭 8:48pm Listener Gregory:

This sounds like my first wife!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:54pm doctorjazz:

Thanks, Bronwyn, fun as usual!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:55pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Henry: I realized everything I was playing was super old so I had to close it out with some wacky new stuff lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:58pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@diciassette: I love how that's one of two examples of vacuum being turned into vac-u-um for a rhyme in a showtune (Stephen Schwartz also did this for the Disney movie Enchanted)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:59pm Bronwyn Bishop:

we are going into OT tonight thanks to the weirdness at the beginning
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:01pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@doctorjazz: thank YOU for listening!
Avatar 🎭 9:03pm Listener Gregory:

Whoops! Abrupt ending! Excellent show, B.B.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 10:03pm WR:

Archive listened, in part during dinner tonight so will probably listen again to get every delicious bit. Oopsy, the abrupt cut off. Would have loved hearing your back announcement for the last set.
  10:32am Marie:

Fabio show. Your show, in general, is a real gem. Thanks, Bronwyn!
