This week Curtain Call‘s host, Mel Larch brings you a gimmick program. We were discussing what to do this week for all the people who are stuck at home, and we came up with the idea of doing a show made up entirely of songs from musicals that have the word “home” in their titles. We debut this show Wednesday at 3 PM on The AIR.
The idea being that, while essentially being quarantined may be boring, or suck outright in some cases, there are worse places you can be stuck than at home. Now, we didn’t use any songs from the musical Fun Home, because the “home” in that show is a funeral parlor, and the only song with “home” in the title is a Brady Bunch-style commercial jingle about the funeral home.
Now, I did swipe the graphics for this episode from Fun Home anyway. Just to be on the safe side, we’ll run a couple of shows with music from Fun Home starting at 4 PM.
Here’s the playlist.
