It's blockbuster Sunday on 2 on the Aisle! Jazz 90.1's semi-annual fund drive is in full swing, so we'll be "playing favorites," and hopefully some of your's! I have a soft spot for several of these selections, don't you?
We're busting out with The Music Man (one of my listeners is a Shipoopi Nut!), Camelot and South Pacific (for those Rodgers and Hammerstein fans), a couple of Sondheim goodies...an 18 year old Judy Garland hummer, even Shirley Temple is showing up! And hopefully we'll have time for Rich Man's Frug at the end, a great dance piece so wonderfully choreographed by Bob Fosse, from Sweet Charity. So I'll try not to talk TOOOO much, so we can fit that in.
Anyway, it's good to be back LIVE, though my jaunt to Chicago this past weekend was marvelous. Now it's back to the Broadway Grind, and I mean that in a good way!
