Just read the news that Olivia Newton John has passed away at age 73. 😢 Like a lot of people, I loved her in Grease, and I was a fan of her in the 80s (I still have my vinyl copy of Physical). I wasn't a big fan of the film Xanadu, but I love this scene where Gene Kelly and Olivia dance together in his final film role. RIP Olivia! https://youtu.be/pp1qNDgrK4w

Extrait de la bande sonore du film "Xanadu" paru en 1980. La belle Olivia danse au coté du grand Gene Kelly dans ce très beau numéro de danse des années 40. ...

Tune in for the "Election Edition" of the show on Sunday, November 1. 12p-2p, on WRUW-FM 91.1 (online at wruw.org). Songs from Broadway, Hollywood, and London about politics, voting, and government. Songs we play every election cycle, and you get to apply your own biases. :) (And remember the 'Time Warp' of Daylight Savings ... set your clock back one hour ... so you don't miss it!) Here's one song you'll hear:

"TONY! TONY! TONY!" Sunday, June 7, was supposed to be the date of the 2020 Tony Awards ... before the COVID-19 pandemic changed everything. The 2020 Tony Awards will be rescheduled. In the meantime, join us for the June 7th edition of 'Sunday Matinee' as we present the story and the music of the show that holds the record for the most Tony Awards won by a single show. 'The Producers': The Musical. Tune in 12-2PM on 91.1 in Northeast Ohio, or online at wruw.org!

The Tony Awards were originally scheduled to air Sunday, June 7, but will be postponed. In it's place ... a "Grease" sing-a-long???

A new date for the Tonys has not yet been announced.

** Message me privately to see how many of these you get right ** See how many of these you can guess, simply based on the color schemes and relative sizes of the bars. Some are pretty easy, some are a little more challenging. These are not in chronological order, because many have been in and out of production for decades. I can tell you that 5 of these musicals are adapted or inspired by books, 1 is adapted from a movie, 1 is adapted from a comic strip, and 5 were created originally for the stage. Have fun! :)

If all goes well with the automation software this Sunday, you're in for a treat on Sunday Matinee: the complete story and music of "Jesus Christ Superstar", from the 1970 rock opera LP. Tune in at 12 noon, Easter Sunday! Listen live on 91.1 FM in NE Ohio, or listen online at www.wruw.org.

The entire orchestra at have recorded this beautiful video response for Andrew Lloyd Webber to show their support from isolation.

This is a creative take on a famous song from Les Miserables. I love seeing all the creative ways people are modifying show tunes during this pandemic.

03/30/2020

Update on returning to regular broadcasts of "Sunday Matinee":
1) WRUW is still on automation, but I have selected musicals to play on Sundays from 12p-2p, so you can still hear the music you love at our usual time. Tune in to 91.1 FM in NEOhio, or listen online at wruw.org!
2) We have also incorporated showtunes into the main automation, and you can hear a musical block every weekday from 12noon-1pm, too!
3) In the meantime I am working on putting together pre-recorded shows for you! Stay tuned for details!

Normally, at this time, I would be at WRUW-FM 91.1 Cleveland to host my Sunday Matinee Radio Show but today I'm sitting at home with a cat on my lap. The difference today is that WRUW is now on 24/7 automation because of the health emergency. It was a tough decision by the station executive staff, but we have 60+ people at the station every week using a lot of shared equipment. That's a situation that is ripe for potential problems, even with an abundance of Lysol wipes, gloves, and sanitizers. In addition, we're a University-based station, all of the students have been sent home for the rest of the semester, and the University has put a kabash on non-essential people getting into buildings on campus. We're working on ways to broadcast pre-recorded shows, so please bear with us! In the meantime, enjoy the variety of music in rotation. :)
