Broadway to Main Street

Sundays at 3pm

BROADWAY TO MAIN STREET is devoted to music that began on the Broadway stage.  Each episode of “Broadway to Main Street”—will celebrate an important show or legendary songwriter or examine a historical or cultural movement.  The songs will be drawn from classic albums, rare recordings, and surprise interpretations, supplemented by host Laurence Maslon’s commentary, guest appearances, and news from Broadway.

“Every song we’ll play will have originated on Broadway, but in addition to the stars who made these songs famous, we’ll also hear from the great artists of film, popular recording, jazz, and the cabaret scene, and discover some of their majestic interpretations of this glorious music, in order to give our listeners a sense of how vast, how entertaining and how enlightening the American musical stage has been for over a century.  Whether our listeners have tuned in from their living room or their car radio or one of those new fangled mobile devices, they’re going to have the best seat in the house.”
