Options Acid Jazz Hands with Bronwyn Bishop: Playlist from October 30, 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).

Spooky Spooky very Spooky.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:01pm Cmurtha:

Howdy everyone.
Avatar 🎭 7:01pm Listener Gregory:

Turning all the lights on.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:04pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Hey Cmurtha and Gregory!!!! Welcome to the Spooky Acid Jazz Dream!!!!! Don't be scared, it's only a show...or is it???
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:07pm WR:

Only thing I fear at the moment is that I get another work call tonight. Otherwise I'm all ears here.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:08pm Cmurtha:

I've been watching the Universal Monster movies with a friend over them month. Must say, most are a touch too slow, but entertaining. Creature from the Black Lagoon is the Worst so Far. Watched Surf Nazis Much Die, which I strongly endorse as a b-movie. What have ya'll been doing for the spooky season.

I also now look foward to the reveal that WFMU was just dream.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:09pm WR:

Oh, shit. "was just a dream." You just scared me.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:10pm Cmurtha:

This is one of my favorite songs from RHPS
Avatar 🎭 7:12pm Listener Gregory:

@WR, that is the true nightmare.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:12pm Bronwyn Bishop:

If WFMU was just a dream, I would wake up tomorrow morning at age 17 in 2011 (when I discovered it) and would proceed through the rest of my senior year and NOT do radio in college and possibly be miserable in LA right now
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:15pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Cmurtha: That song is the best and Richard O'Brien even released it as a solo single!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:17pm Webhamster Henry:

Hi Bronwyn! I wonder if Carrie will show up!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:19pm Bronwyn Bishop:

ya think? ;)
Avatar 🎭 7:20pm Listener Gregory:

I have to step out for a few minutes to stock up on garlic and crucifixes. Back in 15.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:22pm Webhamster Henry:

The work waits, I'm alive at last and I'm full of joy!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:27pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Henry did you steal my playlist notes??
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:31pm Webhamster Henry:

Hey - because you're here, I don't have to do a show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:32pm Bronwyn Bishop:

lol glad I can be of service :D
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:34pm Cmurtha:

Randy Newman was the Phantom all along.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:35pm Bronwyn Bishop:

I would be intrigued to hear his "Music of the Night"
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:36pm Cmurtha:

I was thinking more of the Paradise due to the Faust connection, but you know Randy Newman as the Phantom of the Opera is pretty damn comic.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:40pm Bronwyn Bishop:

it's a delightful image
Avatar 🎭 7:43pm Listener Gregory:

Sad I missed Faust, which is perhaps his greatest work.
Avatar 🎭 7:46pm Listener Gregory:

The playlist seems to be lagging, unless it’s just me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:50pm Bronwyn Bishop:

not lagging, just went to make soup lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:51pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Come on, Seymour
Don't be a putz!
Trust me and your life will surely
Rival King Tut's
Show a little initiative, boy
Work up some guts

HOWARD ASHMAN!!!
Avatar 🎭 7:58pm Listener Gregory:

During Hold Me, Bat Boy, I couldn’t help thinking “See me, feel me, touch me, heal me.”
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:01pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Tommy + Bat Boy = two great tragic heroes of musical theatre
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:04pm diciassette:

Hello! I am distracted by work, but not distracted enough to not be distracted by SHOW TUNES

Also bacon. Who is cooking bacon?
Avatar 🎭 8:05pm Listener Gregory:

I saw the classic Dracula film with a live orchestra playing the Phil Glass soundtrack once. That was worth doing.
Avatar 🎭 8:06pm Listener Gregory:

This Lizzie is excellent. Never heard before.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:07pm Webhamster Henry:

There's also the Lizzie Borden song from New Faces of '52
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:08pm Cmurtha:

Such a fun song and scene.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:10pm Bronwyn Bishop:

hey diciassette :D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:11pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Henry: Back on my previous show I played a funny version of that one by the Scottish singing duo "Fran and Anna"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:11pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Cmurtha: I have somehow still not seen this movie...gotta fix that
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:12pm Webhamster Henry:

You can't chop your poppa up in Massachusetts.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:12pm Cmurtha:

I watched it because of hearing music from it from your show! It's a b-movie, got some problems even as far as B-movies go, but the music is fun, and its a fun watch.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:13pm Webhamster Henry:

Phantom of the Paradise was shown as a fun movie night last year at the venue across the street. They played silly shorts off youtube and had a little trivia quiz and raffle!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:15pm northguineahills:

I swear the FL unemployment server is run on NeXTSTEP (1990s tech). It's been all week and I finally got through, but their servers shut down at 8pm....
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:15pm Webhamster Henry:

Yeah Bootleg!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:15pm Bronwyn Bishop:

hold on tight kiddos
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:16pm Bronwyn Bishop:

That sucks ngh :(((
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:16pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Henry: Thank god for this bootleg, I love this!!!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:16pm Webhamster Henry:

Hey I like NeXTStep! <<< from NeXTStep, the musical.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:17pm Webhamster Henry:

Betty Buckley is a powerhouse!
Avatar 🎭 8:18pm Listener Gregory:

Clutching my crucifixes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:19pm northguineahills:

@Henry: You'd need really competent admistrators to make work properly, especially today....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:20pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Henry: I love her so much. Check out this video of all the different Grizabellas singing the climax of Memory, they all sound like they're making a ton of effort and then at 8:12 Betty sings it totally effortlessly: www.youtube.com...
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:23pm Webhamster Henry:

@BB thanks!
Avatar 🎭 8:31pm Listener Gregory:

This is adorable.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:41pm northguineahills:

The Orlando Shakespeare theater used to be 1km from my old house.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:42pm Doug Schulkind:

I think Listener Gregory and Webhamster Henry have been listening to the radio for about 10 hours straight.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:43pm Bronwyn Bishop:

We should have a record for the longest time spent listening, just like Glen Jones set the record for longest broadcast
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:44pm Webhamster Henry:

I sometimes run several streams simultaneously.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:44pm Webhamster Henry:

#fomo
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:46pm WR:

Sweeny Todd in scope?
Avatar 🎭 8:47pm Listener Gregory:

Doug, I took time off after the end of the battle of the years.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:48pm Doug Schulkind:

I hope you left the radio on for the cats, Listener Gregory.
Avatar 🎭 8:49pm Listener Gregory:

Sometimes I comment on the music with the sound off. This will not surprise you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:51pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@WR: we're gettin there!!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:53pm Cmurtha:

Thanks for the show! Happy Halloween gang.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:53pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:53pm Webhamster Henry:

I hope you follow this up with a Villain Song show!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:54pm Bronwyn Bishop:

great idea henry!!!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:54pm Doug Schulkind:

Thank you for another great show, Bronwyn! It's a pleasure to inhabit Fridays with you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:54pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Aw thanks Doug, thanks for listening :D
Avatar 🎭 8:55pm Listener Gregory:

Is it absurd to say that this is absurd? (The Poe song)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:55pm Bronwyn Bishop:

its absurdly absurd
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:56pm Webhamster Henry:

@Bronwyn Include those from TV shows like NPH's Count Olaf tunes!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:58pm WR:

Scяaps partner who passed a few years ago used to sing, a bit under her breath but audible, bits from Sweeney Todd about slitting throats if our activities somehow impeded her getting her work done. Gleeful grin if we looked at her questioning why she was singing.

At the time I knew about but had not seen or heard the show. Now for me forever associated with her.
Avatar 🎭 8:59pm Listener Gregory:

I promise to have nightmares tonight, Bronwyn. Thanks!
The show was Hellacious.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:00pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Henry: Love that series!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:01pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Gregory: thank youuuuu
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 9:01pm Webhamster Henry:

My Netflix icon is Carmelita Spatz.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:01pm Bronwyn Bishop:

sweeney is allowed to curse here on the stream
Avatar 🎭 9:02pm Listener Gregory:

Doesn’t Len Cariou play the kindly grandfather on Blue Bloods? Hard to imagine him in this part.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 9:02pm Webhamster Henry:

In typical fashion all the Sweney murders would be just fine with the FCC.
Avatar 🎭 9:03pm Listener Gregory:

2nd Amendment you know.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 9:03pm Webhamster Henry:

That was fun! See ya next week!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 9:03pm diciassette:
