The Dress Circle: Remembering Frank Loesser

d_frank_loesser_montage.jpg

July 28th marks the 50th anniversary of the death of one of the true musical giants of Broadway and Hollywood, and we wanted to celebrate his career on this week’s Dress Circle (7/28 7:00 p.m.).   Frank Henry Loesser wrote wonderfully memorable songs for stage and screen musicals.  Of course, we’ll be including his Oscar winning song from “Neptune’s Daughter,” “Baby, It’s Cold Outside,” but we’ll also be including songs from the film musical “Hans Christian Anderson” and from the stage, “Where’s Charley?”, “Greenwillow,” the Tony Award winning “Guys and Dolls.” 

We're happy to also be including songs from Loesser’s favorite (as well as one of ours) “The Most Happy Fella,” and we couldn’t celebrate Loesser without songs from his Tony and Pulitzer Prize winning score to “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.”  Tune in for songs both familiar and “un,” and help us pay homage to one of the men who made “The Great White Way” truly great.

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.
