We're opening another
month and another year
this week with some songs
from a few of the shows
that opened on
Broadway in January.
The diverse menu includes
songs from THE HAPPY
TIME, SWEET CHARITY,
DARLING OF THE DAY,
CELEBRATION, THE
LITTLE MERMAID, and
THE ZIEGFELD
FOLLIES OF 1936 to
name just a few.

Although only one of his
songs has made it onto
"the Charts," Stephen
Sondheim's music has
been recorded by a
large body of singers,
and we'll look at a
sampling of that in a
program entitled
"Sondheim Women."
Some of those ladies
include Jane Krakowski,
Judy Collins, Cleo Laine,
Bernadette Peters, and
Liz Callaway. Tune in to
see who else we've
included.

A while back, we took a
look at some of the
musicals that have been
staged at Britain's
National Theatre, so it's
only fair that we now
take a look at some
that have come from
the Royal Shakespeare
Company. Those we've
included are: LES
MISERABLES, THE
WIZARD OF OZ, KISS
ME KATE, THE
SHAKESPEARE
REVUE, and their
most recent hit,
MATILDA.

There are many strange
and interesting holidays
each year, and on January
31, many people will be
observing "Backwards
Day." We're not qutie
sure how that's done,
but we thought we'd
look at songs that go
back, take back, and
are just generally about
backs from musicals
including SALAD DAYS,
METROPOLIS, THE
SPITFIRE GRILL, and
SHOUT! along with
about a dozen others.
