Welcome 

Broadway to Main Street is the crossroads where the greatest songs of the Broadway stage meet popular culture in America.  You can listen to this week's show; or dig into the archives of over 100 different broadcasts celebrating the timeless tunes and traditions of the American Musical Theater; or investigate books, articles, and news about the American musical. 

THIS WEEK'S SHOW

Original Air Date 1-24-2014

Fred Sings George

Has there ever been a more fascinating rhythm than the feet of Fred Astaire? Perhaps his unique phrasing and way with a song. Astaire made his career singing the music of George Gershwin in the 1920s and, to celebrate the upcoming Encores! presentation of Lady, Be Good!, we’ll be looking a treasure trove of Gershwin classics from Funny Face, Shall We Dance, and Damsel in Distress. It’s nice work, and you can get it only on Broadway to Main Street.

Black and Blue

In solidarity with our citoyennes, we stretch BROADWAY TO MAIN STREET all the way to the Champs Elysees in our tribute to Paris; no matter how they change her, we'll remember her in song. We'll hear Maurice Chevalier, Sammy Davis, Colette Renard, Judy Garland and others singing songs from GIGI, CAN-CAN, SILK STOCKINGS, SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE and many others. Ooh, la la – c'est magnifique!
