Wednesday, August 22nd, 3 pm ET, The Halli Casser-Jayne Show will be talking raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens, oh what a beautiful mornin’, you’ve got to be carefully taught and so much more, when we celebrate truly something wonderful: the genius of the most influential lyricist of the American theater, Oscar Hammerstein II. Together with collaborator Richard Rodgers, Hammerstein helped define the modern musical, winning eight Tonys and two Academy Awards. From Showboat to Oklahoma!, South Pacific to The King and I, and, of course, The Sound of Music, Hammerstein taught us all to whistle a happy tune. Joining Halli to celebrate the genius of his grandfather and the influence of the entire Hammerstein family is Oscar Hammerstein II’s grandson, author and painter, Oscar Andrew Hammerstein; currently starring on Broadway in Jersey Boys, Russell Fischer; President and Executive Director of Rodgers & Hammerstein, Ted Chapin; and author and vaudeville historian, Trav S.D. It’ll be 90 minutes of sheer musical pleasure. So pour yourselves something cool and refreshing, kick back, and listen to The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, Talk Radio for Fine Minds and Broadway musical lovers.
