Broadway Matinee - Songs from the Stage & Screen

Series produced by Janean Jorgensen

Series image

The weekly hour of show tunes, including vaudeville, the "Golden Age," songs sung on screen, and today's newest stage and cabaret music.

MATINEE explores a theme through music written to be performed on stage, in cabaret, or sung in film. Host Janean Jorgensen is an actress and singer with a passion for stories told in song. Even people who say they hate musicals say they like the ‘musical essays’ she creates.
Starting 2010, all shows are :59 with a 1-minute music break at :29. A full playlist is included compliant with both SX and BMI reporting.
A print advertisement for the Matinee, in either full color or BW, is available for free, for station customizing and placing in your market's theater programs (theater ads make great in-kind donations!). Contact Janean with your print ad size requirements.
