Options Acid Jazz Hands with Bronwyn Bishop: Playlist from January 24, 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).

This Peter Pan bit was written when Comden & Green found out that Mary Martin could sing coloratura soprano.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:27pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Hi everyone!! :D
Avatar 7:44pm WR:

Unfortunately I am working tonight so have the stream on but have to keep it low and can't give these great songs the attention the I want to.
Avatar 7:46pm Mod Mokka Matti:

Good evening - first time listener to AJH, but definitely appreciating the selections so far!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:46pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Aw that's too bad WR! Glad you still get to listen :)
Avatar 7:46pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Hopefully better now...we'll see.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:46pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Hi MMM!! I love your avatar, it goes really well with the current song which is from a puppet show!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:47pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Everything seems to be working great now Kenzo :D

@Bronwyn: Thanks!

"Nichevo" means "(It's) Nothing"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:55pm Bronwyn Bishop:

So this song is much ado about nothing!

Oh dear. 503 Service Unavailable strikes again!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:11pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Well, simply reloaded the page and all is well again.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:13pm Doug Schulkind:

I saw Gary Burghoff and cast in a regional production of YaGMCB in 1968 at Shady Grove Music Fair (theatre in the round!) in Gaithersburg, Maryland!
Avatar 8:13pm Mod Mokka Matti:

At least the stream remains unbroken out here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:14pm diciassette:

thank goodness for that, Mod Mokka Matti
  8:14pm John from Florham park:

@JFHP this whole thing is very strange
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:15pm diciassette:

Has anyone checked on our Elastic Load Balancers?
  8:16pm John from Florham park:

I mean KFHP sorry
Avatar 8:19pm WR:

Ah, just realized you are continuing the song for every year theme. So no shows 1944 to 1952? Since I've been busy you may have already explained that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:20pm Webhamster Henry:

@WR check out last week!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:21pm Webhamster Henry:

[1944 was missing]
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:37pm Webhamster Henry:

Shenadoah was one of the Goodspeed Opera Musicals , like Man of La Mancha, Annie, Whoopie, and lots of others.
Avatar 8:43pm WR:

Thanks WH Henry, considered that as possibility, should have looked.
Avatar 8:45pm northguineahills:

Sin preocupaciones!
Avatar 8:47pm northguineahills:

That Thigpen did it for me, as said before, musicals are hit or miss for me, but that hit!

Avatar 8:50pm WR:

In fact, looking back I recall I only heard the first half of last week, so much to listen to. So little time.
  8:51pm Doug Schulkind:

What a perfect Friday evening program. Love this show so much!
