LISTS THE SONGS

Broadway's Biggest Hits prides itself on playing a great variety of Broadway songs. The music library contains more than 2,000 CDs and the show strives to feature as many different songs from as many different musicals as possible, while emphasizing the music found in current Broadway shows. To find what's been played so far in 2008, check out the Playlist page.
NOVEMBER
PROGRAMS


November 1-2
SONGS FOR
ELECTION

With Election Day on Tuesday, it's only natural that we play some songs that mention politics, politicians and a bit of corruption. We'll hear tracks from the musicals "1776," "Fiorello," "Mr. President" and "L'il Abner" as well as hits from today's popular musicals.

November 8-9
SITTING DOWN
WITH SHREK

"Shrek the Musical" comes to Broadway and we sit down with the cast, including stars Brian d'Arcy James (who plays Shrek), Sutton Foster (Princess Fiona), Christopher Sieber (Lord Farquaad) and Daniel Breaker (Donkey), to find out about this new show at the Broadway Theatre.

November 15-16
A FESTIVAL OF
IGNORED SONGS

With so many songs in the music library - literally tens of thousands - it's only natural that some get ignored. This performance is filled with songs that haven't been played in 2008 - yet.

November 22-23
SNOW FALLS
ON BROADWAY

Choreographer Randy Skinner tells us about the music and dance found in the Broadway staging of "Irving Berlin's White Christmas," which has limited holiday run at the Marquis Theatre. It's also time to give thanks and Broadway's Biggest Hits digs out some songs for the occasion as well as some that mention food for Thanksgiving.

November 29-30
CAROLS FOR
CHRISTMAS

It's an annual tradition. Broadway's Biggest Hits begins serving up Christmas songs from Broadway musicals, such as "Subways Are for Sleeping," "Flahooley" and "The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas," and carols done by Broadway stars. The closer it gets to Christmas, the more we play!

SHOW SEEKING
UNDERWRITERS

Broadway's Biggest Hits celebrated 10 years on the air in October and will make it through 2008 - thanks to the support of dedicated listeners. However, after sustaining a nearly six-figure loss over the past decade, more help is needed in the form of industry underwriting to keep the show going in 2009. Read Bud's Buzz for full details. NEW!
