Playlist for Sunday, April 19, 2015: Henry and George and Peggy and Sid...and BRUCE!

Robert Preston isn't sending roses, Bruce Bogtrotter can't quite finish that cake, Sid Caesar is the Prince, and Peggy Cass is the Queen, but merely of Terre Haute...yes, we've got quite a range on 2 On The Aisle this Sunday.  Sometimes you just have to mix things up!

Highlights:  A bunch from Matilda (7 Olivier Awards? 5 Tonys?)....George Benson's rendition of "On Broadway" (that opening number of Fosse's All That Jazz), three (count 'em, 3) goodies from I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change...and a mini-tribute to Henry Mancini.

Henry died way too early for me; he was only 70 when he passed away in 1994.  I mean, all those movie soundtracks and TV themes...lush and perfect for the 1950s through the 80s...and a few even later. It's his birthday on Thursday, April 16th, so I thought maybe we'd feature a few (of his very many) creations, like Charade, the theme from Peter Gunn, Moon River, Victor/Victoria, and of course the theme for the Pink Panther. Blake Edwards was his partner in crime for several movies, as well as Stanley Donen and Howard Hawks, and he recorded over 90 albums.  No slouch, he. 

Oh, and our Flop Corner is back.  You wouldn't wanna miss THAT, would you? :)
