Upcoming Broadcasts

To help listeners get through the ?stay home? blues, Movie Addict Headquarters has put together fifteen minutes of sheer musical FUN. Four funny ladies of film are featured in this special episode. The talented quartet includes Madeline Kahn, Julie Andrews, Lucille Ball and Gilda Radner. Each one performs a silly song guaranteed to put a smile on your face. Madeline Kahn sings You'd Be Surprised, a relatively unknown Irving Berlin tune she performed at Carnegie Hall as part of Berlin's 100th Birthday Celebration in 1988. The song was also sung by Olga San Juan in Blue Skies, a 1946 movie starring Fred Astaire and Bing Crosby. Julie Andrews warbles A Spoon Full of Sugar Makes the Medicine Go Down from the original Mary Poppins in 1964. Robert B. Sherman and Richard M. Sherman composed this memorable ditty. Lucille Ball belts out Mother, What Do I Do Now, her comedy burlesque number in Dance, Girl, Dance, an amusing 1940s film co-starring Maureen O'Hara. The music and lyrics for this raucous number are by Chet Forrest and Bob Wright. Gilda Radner sings and taps her way into our hearts in I Love To Be Unhappy, an unforgettable performance from Gilda Live from New York, her 1979 stage show.
