Playlist for Sunday, Jan. 24th, 2016: Red or White, Monsieur?

So it's finally decided to be winter out there. I had to actually touch a shovel this morning. And I now remember why I kept this unfashionable parka and that unattractive set of snowpants. Fought my way home in a scuffle with Mother Nature last night, and she almost won. Now I know why I blocked all these memories...last winter? What winter?

So I've decided to be French. Yup, for 2 whole sets. Slipping off (well, THAT'S EASY TODAY!) the Broadway Band Wagon, into the world of baguettes, with Yves, Edith, Charles, and Frehel...old songs, new songs, with accordians and striped shirts. We'll bookend it with plenty of Broadway, so as to cloak it with good ole musicals, but hey, it's COPE time. And I spell cope...P A R I S.

Waiting in the wings for their entrances, will be Judy, Audra, Doris....The Fantasticks, St. Louis Woman, a bad guy set(!), and of course Murder most foul as our finale.  Meanwhile, get out your beret and choose a wine. I'll let you know when to uncork.
