The Dress Circle: Remembering Carol Channing

c_channing_montage.jpg

We lost the dynamo known as Carol Channing on January 15, and on this week’s Dress Circle (2/17 7:00 p.m.), we’ll be paying tribute to her wonderful career.  Channing’s early career was as a model which led to stage work that took her to New York and then L.A..  In L.A., she was hired for a show that took her back to New York, and there she stayed.  We’ll look at some of that early work in shows like 1948’s “Lend an Ear,” 1949’s “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes,” and 1961’s “Show Girl.”  

Of course, we’ll have selections from “Hello, Dolly!,” but we’ll also be looking at some of her film and recorded work as well as we celebrate her life with selections from “Free to Be…”, “Thoroughly Modern Millie,” “Thumbelina,” and her solo recording “Jazz Baby” and more.  Join us for our homage to a woman who brought joy to so many people.  

Michael is program host and host of the WWFM Sunday Opera, Sundays at 3 pm, and co-host of The Dress Circle, Sundays at 7 pm.
Ted Otten is co-host of The Dress Circle
