Options Acid Jazz Hands with Bronwyn Bishop: Playlist from January 17, 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. Levels seem low on my end.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:08pm Bronwyn Bishop:

better?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:10pm doctorjazz:

Better (but I got blasted by my stereo, which I had turned up very loud). But I could barely hear anything on my phone initially at its highest setting). Thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:12pm WR:

Music is plenty loud. I was about to check the GTD email to see if you were off tonight. Just arrived in NYC after trip out west visiting family. This show is welcoming me back.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:23pm WR:

It sounds a bit too hot now. But wait until after your mic break to adjust anything.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:23pm Bronwyn Bishop:

studio c is a fickle mistress
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:24pm doctorjazz:

Duke! Jumps out at you immediately!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:26pm doctorjazz:

(Hard to please 'em all! (Sounds ok here, but there likely is a middle ground).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:27pm WR:

There was a compilation that focused on vintage releases of songs and music of Blackbirds of 1928. Have yet to have time to sit down with it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:34pm WR:

You are fast with the gggoogle
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:40pm doctorjazz:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:41pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Greetings, Bronwyn and handsome personalities.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:45pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@WR: Typing fast is part of my job so I've gotten pretty good at it haha
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:46pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Hi Uncle Michael!! :D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:51pm Uncle Michael:

Hi, Bronwyn.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:59pm doctorjazz:

. The Harminicats were cool, appeared on TV a lot. I'm not even sure you can still get harmonica in all those registers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:59pm Doug Schulkind:

If Meghan were here, we'd have the whole Friday family! Greetings, Bronwyn!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:00pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Shine by Louis Armstrong and the Mills Brothers was a big hit.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:23pm doctorjazz:

Talk about singing behind the beat...John Bubbles (the singer?) Was at least a measure behind, wrote!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:34pm Bronwyn Bishop:

John Bubbles was doing his best!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:34pm Bronwyn Bishop:

(I have to defend John Bubbles bc I love his name so much)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:49pm doctorjazz:

This song is an instant smile maker (A Wonderful Guy)
Avatar 8:58pm northguineahills:

I found some chapulines (crickets in chile, lime and salt) and chili covered mangoes at my local mercado, I'm in heaven! Yeah, commenting is still working (wasn't able to comment until Billy Jam, today).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:00pm doctorjazz:
