Options Acid Jazz Hands with Bronwyn Bishop: Playlist from February 14, 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).

Hi Bronwyn! I'm only around for an hour or so (going off to Karaoke) but Hi!.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:12pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Hi!!! Omg have fun at karaoke (do a musical theatre song!!!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:12pm doctorjazz:

Is this the stream? Hi, Bronwyn and all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:13pm WR:

Had no idea that was Glen Campbell. Am listening but working tonight and most of the time on phone with customer so just listening.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:14pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Hi doctorjazz!! It is the stream, of all the musicals Hair probably sounds the most like what you might usually hear on the non-DJ drummer stream...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:14pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Hi WR :D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:15pm doctorjazz:

I was wondering if it was Hair, don't know it THAT well, but doesn't sound like it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:16pm doctorjazz:

That's more like it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:18pm Webhamster Henry:

I actually did "The Flesh Failures" last time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:20pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Wow I bet that was dramatic!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:21pm Webhamster Henry:

I actually just made a Karaoke video to test my karaokeation skillz. "Rhode Island Is Famous For You". Final Cut is sooo easy to work with! I will channel my inner Blossom Dearie.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:22pm Doug Schulkind:

Hooray for AJH!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:22pm Webhamster Henry:

Go check out the Melvin Van Peebles show scenes from past Tony Award shows!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:22pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Hi Doug!! :D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:23pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Henry: I will!! I bet they are a delight!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:23pm WR:

Oh gee. Looks like the fall fund drive pumpkin is gone or replaced by a heart. Don't know why I focus on non-essential browser stuff. This cut clothes closet dreams song needs some context for me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:25pm Webhamster Henry:

Kenzo has been fiddling with the playlist chat code.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:48pm Webhamster Henry:

Excellent crate diggin' Bronwyn!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:52pm Bronwyn Bishop:

thanks :D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:57pm WR:

Thank you for the Van Peebles show info. Will probably be too busy to write anything at the end of the shows, so writing my thanks now. Laters all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:58pm diciassette:

Ahoy! I'd been listening on the bus, but now in the recliner (whew!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:05pm doctorjazz:

Off to dinner, catch the show in the archives. Happy V Day!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:10pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Bye WR and doctorjazz, welcome diciassette!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:27pm diciassette:

I love this! Excellent Valentine selections
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:29pm diciassette:

Also, William Finn seems to be dressed as a priest.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:34pm Bronwyn Bishop:

I would confess everything to William Finn
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:36pm diciassette:

In 1967
No pop in our record collection
The Beatles and Stones mean nothing to us
I think we should count our blessings
In 1967

(random L. Haines lyric dump)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:57pm Doug Schulkind:

Superlative selections, Bronwyn. Thanks for starting the weekend!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:58pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Aw thanks so much Doug :D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:01pm diciassette:
