In this week’s show we have songs from Billy Elliot, West Side Story and Chitty Chitty Bang bang. We play Pure Imagination to acknowledge the sad passing of Gene Wilder and feature two new musicals to the show – Sweet Charity and South Pacific. We have the musical theatre news and the usual lyrics and guess the musical quizzes.
I’ve been trying to introduce a couple of new songs from musicals every week as well as changing the overall format of the show so you get more music and less of me waffling. These week we have songs from Priscilla Queen of the Desert, Wicked and Annie with songs from two new musicals to show, Funny Girl and Fiddler on the Roof. We have the musical theatre news and the usual lyrics and guess the musical quizzes. Why not put us on while you do the house work and have a sing-a-long?
So I have got a trial version of some new software to see if I can improve the sound quality of the shows. There was a bit of a shaky start since it all disconnected but I soon got it sorted the show appeared to go without a hitch. What do you think of the quality? Really trying to avoid the changes in volume between songs. In this Musical Show we have songs from Oklahoma, Godspell and the King and I. We listen to a couple of songs from Ghost, including one by Collabro and chat about the musical Wonderland. There is also the lyrics quiz and guess the musical. Why not come and have a sing-a-long.
For the first time for ever we start today with a song from Frozen! Other musicals featuring in this week’s Musical Show include Oliver!, Wicked and Starlight Express. We listened to songs from a couple of new musicals which haven’t ben featured on the show, ‘With one Look’ from Sunset Boulevard and a song request from The Woman in White, I believe my heart. All this and the usual regular features of musical news, the lyrics quiz and guess the musicals.
In this week’s show we feature songs from The Little Shop of Horrors, Aida the Musical and Dreamcoats and Petticoats. I get to indulge myself in the song request segment of the show with a song from Wicked and we have a song from the Arthur Freed and Nacio Herb Brown musical. As always, we have the lyricsand Clues to the Musicals quizzes.
In this week’s show we feature songs from Grease, My Fair Lady and Les Miserables. After being distracted by Show Boat on the television, we play that wonderful song simple titles ‘Bill’ and the song request this week comes from Phantom of the Opera. As always, we have the lyrics competition which the listeners on Facebook did much better with than the people on Twitter and the Clues to the Musical yet again, proved to be difficult – but not impossible.
I was initially concerned that this show had too much Disney in but looking back I think I managed to get away with it. As well as some Disney classics we also featured songs from Chicago, The Sound of Music and Phantom. We tried to guess the song and musical in the lyrics game and baffled everyone with the clues to the musical quiz. Ex Strictly Come Dancing judge Arlene Philips gets a mention and the song request is from the musical – “We will rock you”. Come and have a sing a long – with the musical show, on Wilson Waffling Radio.
