  • Michael Bourne Interviews Bill Daugherty

    March 6, 2009. Posted by Michael Bourne.

    The Cast of "Brother Can You Spare a Dime?"

    Bill Daugherty is the creator and star of the off-Broadway revue "Brother, Can You Spare a Dime?" It's all songs of the 1930's, songs that tell the story of America's first Depression. It's playing weekends at the Triad cabaret theatre on West 72nd. We also talked about other shows he's done, and I've included songs. Listen to the interview:

    Set list:
    "Humpty Dumpty Heart" from show When The Lights Go On Again
    Bill singing "I'm All Smiles" from album Look to the Rainbow
    Bill singing "Sit Down, You're Rocking The Boat" from show Broadway Unplugged 4
    Nancy Anderson singing "True Blue Lou" from album Ten Cents a Dance
    Bill singing "Look to the Rainbow" from album Look to the Rainbow

  • David Sanchez - City Stories

    March 4, 2009. Posted by Joshua Jackson.

    On Tuesday, March 17th at 9pm, WBGO and NPR Music are presenting saxophonist David Sanchez for our next installment of  Live at the Village Vanguard.  Since it's so rare to see a jazz musician get wide exposure, I thought I'd share this installment of City Stories, a series of ads for Banana Republic.  My favorite part?  David recommends a visit to the Village Vanguard as one of the must-do jazz experiences in New York.  Hope you'll join us on March 17th.

    Last week's gallery reception for Lady Bird Strickland had a great turnout, and everyone enjoyed Eli Yamin's performance. His guests included Keith Martin on trumpet, an 8th grader from Mark Twain School for the Gifted and Talented.

    Lady Bird spoke with the crowd, and the art filled the station to the brim!

    The exhibit is on display at WBGO until April 3, Monday through Friday, 9am-5pm.
