The Dress Circle: Marches from Broadway and Hollywood

We’re marching into February on this week’s Dress Circle (1/26 7:00 p.m.) with marches from Broadway and Hollywood.  Now, not every march is self-proclaimed as such, so we’ve looked those songs that will hopefully make you want to get up, grab a baton, and strut around the room.  Along with “Seventy-Six Trombones” from “The Music Man,” “I Ain’t Down Yet” from “The Unsinkable Molly Brown,” “Follow the Fold” from “Guys and Dolls,” and “Hey, Look Me Over,” from “Wildcat,” we’ll also be looking to musicals like “Jupiter’s Darling,” “Oliver!”, and “Hello, Dolly!”.  

A few of the lesser-known musicals include “Mrs. Santa Claus,” “Louisiana Purchase,” and “1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.”  We'll be sampling these and several other musicals for marches that are sure to get your toes tapping.

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.
