I love how you play full songs

I listened to podcasts where they talk about the show and will play snippets of songs from musicals or shows. I like how you let the full song play. I play this show every night and I could care less if I wake my parents up with me singing along.

Although I notice sometimes such as for Bands Visit, the songs “Welcome to no where” or “Omar Sharif” is usually chosen when the show is mentioned. I understand it is popular but the instrumental songs from the show are great. I love the song “answer me” by Adam kantor and I always hope to hear it played but it never is.

Lastly I am hoping unless I missed it, you do have a episode on shows made into movies or movies put on stage. Like Peter Pan (Cathy Rigby), Beetlejuice, Lion King, Willy Wonka, Cats (especially the 2020 movie), The Bands Visit, Mamma Mia, Frozen, ect. Just ideas.

I love this show. I’m so glad I found it

Opened My Eyes

Beautiful tribute to Doris Day. Thank you for spotlighting her lyrical comprehension and her ability to phrase a song with real heart-tugging soulfulness. Your selections were priceless as well your bridging stories. Thank You!
