Welcome to the sixties! Although the song is from the Broadway musical Hairspray that opened on the Great White Way in 2002, it takes place in 1962 Baltimore, Maryland. Hairspray is a social commentary on the injustices of parts of American society in the 1960s.
Iâ€™m constantly inspired by WXXI listeners! Your comments, memories, and observations about music are like signposts, pointing me in new directions. Your creativity is infectious, and your support kindles the best ideas.
In October, Stage Notes will celebrate its first anniversary on WXXI. What a year it has been! As Cy Colemanâ€™s song aptly says, The Best is Yet to Come. Many exciting programs are in the works, including the second edition of the haunting music of Broadway on October 29th. The first program featured love songs from Broadway musicals. Without a doubt, that program could have run for five-hundred twenty-five thousand six-hundred minutes.
