JULY

Well, "...gang aft agley"
between the heat and
the recent fund drive
at WWFM, everything
fell behind. However,
you can still hear this
first program featuring
a nostalgic look at
some film title songs
in the webcasts
section of the
Classical Network's
home page by

July 11th marks the
81st anniversary of
the untimely death of
George Gershwin,
but we wanted to
celebrate the life of
this incredibly gifted
man by sampling some
of the lesser-known
works he wrote with
his brother Ira as well
as a few other lyricists.
These works include
LET 'EM EAT CAKE,
PRIMROSE, TIP-
TOES, SWEET
LITTLE DEVIL,
and more!

It's Ira Gershwin's turn
this week, but this
program is about
the work he did
with composers other
than George for stage
and screen. Some of
the scores included
here are LADY IN THE
DARK, COVER GIRL,
A STAR IS BORN,
and GIVE A GIRL
A BREAK along
with a few others.

Many people were
surprised when Glenn
Close appeared in
SUNSET BLVD.
because they didn't
know that she'd
been in several
musicals before.
We'll look at some
of her musical
performances this
week in shows like
REX, BARNUM,
SUNSET, and as
Nellie in the TV
movie version of
SOUTH PACIFIC.

July and August have
always been slow
months for Broadway
openings, so we're
combining the two
and sampling songs
from shows like the
revival of 1776, TWO
ON THE AISLE,
SIMPLY HEAVENLY,
HAIRSPRAY
and more.
