In advance of the opening this weekend of the movie, JUDY, Wednesday at 3 PM, Curtain Call pays tribute to Tony honoree, Judy Garland. You can listen at the website, or on this embedded radio player…
Just before our tribute to Judy Garland, at 2 PM on Beatles Blast, we replay the eighth part of our look at rare and unreleased music by The Beatles. For most of the summer, Beatles Blast followed this format and brought you ten parts of The Lost Beatles Project. This will be a treat for the die-hard fans as we mine the best of the recently-released archive projects by the band, and mix in rare releases and wild remixes from their band and solo years. We won’t be posting playlists for these shows because the whole point is that each of these programs will be a revelatory surprise. New episodes will pop up soon, and this may just whet your appetite for the expanded, remixed release of Abbey Road that’s coming out this Friday.
Beatles Blast can be heard every Wednesday at 2 PM, with replays Thursday at 9 PM, Friday at 11 AM, Sunday at 5 PM and Tuesdays at 9 AM, exclusively on The AIR.
At 3 PM Mel Larch presents a special hour of performances by and interviews with Judy Garland. With a new biopic opening this weekend, people want to hear the real thing, and that’s what you’ll get in this show.
Judy Garland began her career on the stage in vaudeville before being discovered performing with her sisters and finding herself signed to Metro Goldwyn Mayer, where she found fame and fortune in movies. Later in her career, Ms. Garland returned to the stage as a concert performer and had several memorable runs at Broadway’s legendary Palace Theater.
In this show, you will hear Judy Garland performing live at several different points in her career, singing standards and show tunes. You will also hear an interview with Ms. Garland, conducted at the King Frederick Hotel in Copenhagen. The interview was conducted by Hans Vangkilde for Danmarks Radio, just three months before her untimely passing.
After the new hour of Curtain Call, stick around for two additional episodes from the Curtain Call archives. Curtain Call can be heard Wednesday at 3 PM, with replays Thursday at 8 AM and 8 PM, Friday at 10 AM and Saturday at 6 PM. An all-night marathon of Curtain Call episodes can be heard Wednesday nights, beginning at Midnight, and an additional marathon can be heard Sunday evenings from 6 PM to midnight..
