Options Acid Jazz Hands with Bronwyn Bishop: Playlist from March 6, 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).

Oh em gee. I can't believe what I'm hearing! How have I never heard this before?!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:07pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Hey WR and Doug!! Jacques Brel Is Alive and Well is the best musical ever
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:13pm WR:

You can write a new book, oh oh, admission.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:14pm WR:

You co-hosting with Gary on Bodega was super duper!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:22pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Thanks :D
  Swag For Life Member 7:23pm Tamar:

Disco show tunes!
  Swag For Life Member 7:24pm Tamar:

Acid Jazz Hands, expanding the free and the form in WFMU's freeform streaming radio!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:25pm Cmurtha:

God damn this Boney M cover is powerful. I have to agree the bodega was great. Also, this guy has two thumbs and just got out of a toxic situation so let's get the celebration on.
  Swag For Life Member 7:27pm Tamar:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:28pm WR:

Yay Cmurtha. Hope it works out well for you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:31pm Cmurtha:

Thank you WR!and also thank you Bronwyn!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:39pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Thank YOU Cmurtha!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:40pm Cmurtha:

I know he said Peach, but that man did NOT say peach.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:45pm WR:

Cmurtha, were you the person who knows Turkish and made many informative comments on Gary's show after he returned from visiting there?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:51pm Cmurtha:

I don't believe I am the person who was doing that on Gary's show,(if I was I do not recall) I have done that recently on David's show and some other places. I do know Turkish, study the Ottoman Empire.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:54pm Cmurtha:

I am aiming to keep my hold on studio a's mic, I am trying to make my title more ornate on it this year.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:54pm Cmurtha:

Oooh, maybe next year. This year I went for Nick the Bard again (legacies and all that).
  7:55pm Doug Schulkind:

Woo woo!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:01pm Cmurtha:

Is the show like the movie where he is the villain, or is it like the cartoon I used to love when I was like 5 where Beetlejuice is he's like Lydias buddy (I ask since he apparently introduces the show)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:04pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Both! He starts as her buddy and then starts screwing it all up (I've never seen the movie so idk how it compares)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:07pm WR:

Cmurtha, the person who added a lot of info to Gary's show, which was focused on Istanbul, was user name sispus.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:08pm Cmurtha:

It's one of the better 80s "classic" movies, that are not in the "high art" category. I'd recommend it. Fun claymation visual, interesting concept, great sound track (one of Elfman's best). It's also one of Tim Burton's best films, when he still had a great deal of charm rather than re-hashing things, and becoming obsessed with really ugly muted pallets and confusing "weird" (and barely weird) for whimsy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:08pm Cmurtha:

I don't think I've encountered that user! I will be sure to talk Turkey with them if I run into them
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:13pm WR:

Honestly, it is the play list commentors and the hosts embracing the listeners over the stream and in the comments that made me become a $ supporter.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:15pm Bronwyn Bishop:

That is so lovely WR <3 We love our listeners!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:17pm diciassette:

Go twenties!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:21pm WR:

Yes was just thinking how I have not fully appreciated Madeline Kahn's talent and gifts.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:28pm WR:

During the it marathon has been nice to hear thank yous to many people beyond the regulars who participate in the playlist comments, happy to hear there are lots of other folks who enjoy enough to donate.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:57am Scraps:

Hey, I love Hedwig & the Angry Inch, and I didn’t have it on DVD. Yay! I will watch & listen happily when I’m inside, closing off the nasty virus in Snohomish County Washington outside.
