It's being worked on, folks. Linda Eder is so hot that she overheated the CPU on the server, and all attempts to revive the server in order to air Linda Eder have resulted in the server getting overheated again. It's a truly bizarre and dark situation, worthy of the incendiary talents of Ms. Eder. However, drastic measures are being taken and we have no reason to believe that Ms. Eder should not be on time for her appearance tonight.
Sorry for the inconvenience, folks. Think back on

The recording has also been in rotation on BroadwayWorld Radio for a few weeks, now -- you can always here it there :)

Good news, folks. I've just finished testing and implementing a tweaked method of accessing the station. When you click a "listen" link you'll now have a few different listening options to choose from - you're not stuck with Windows Media Player any more, if it's been giving you trouble.
You should also know that the station has been becoming so popular that we are occasionally hitting our maximum number of listeners... we're adding extra capacity, and it should be available in the ne

There have been some changes to the station this week (I am sooo SNEAKY!) but the changes have been "under the hood"... the methods for tuning in, etc., are NOT different. I am always looking for ways to make tuning in easier, as I know there are still some problems with Windows Media Player, in particular, but the problems are HARD to nail down.
The "Help" page, which provides several other ways of tuning in, is still accurate. Almost everybody can get the station using at least one

No, you don't need their permission, and you don't have to tell them what you're doing. Writers the world over base characters on people they know. Sometimes a characters is a combination of several real-life people; sometimes a character starts as a real-life person and then develops into something completely different.
If you're writing what will ultimately be thought of as fiction, you'll find that you have to change "real" events, people, and paces to make them better suit the m
I'm a sucker for "Fathers & Sons", also from "Working" ... but "Just a Housewife" is truly a classic.

Since you mentioned Raul, I assume you're asking about the O*B*CR, since the OCR is technically the London cast recording. I think both are excellent, but I have a soft spot for the magic John McDaniel managed to work with the arrangements on the Broadway Cast Recording. I think you'd be hard-pressed to pick a better choice for the best original score of the 03-04 Broadway season, and I'm sure you'll come away from your first listen hoping that Boy George continues to write for the theatre: he

The Wicked broadcast will be on again tonight, 7 PM, for those who missed it yesterday due to *my* programming glitch. I assumed that I had yesterday's broadcast all set to go, and I didn't.
There seem to be three things occuring on this thread: (1) problems tuning into the station (2) the Altar Boyz broadcast yesterday (3) accessing past Chatterbox shows
So here goes:

1) The Laramie Project's content is drawn almost entirely from interviews with real people. It is composed almost entirely of monologues. The play is presented pseudo-documentary-style, so IMHO the key to making it work is finding versatile actors who can give voice to the people of Laramie in the most natural, effortless manner possible. For the audition, I would work with something contemporary... Chekhov doesn't fit that bill. You might look at material from other plays that Moise

Thanks for fielding that one for me, Zack :)
I've heard of a few problems with people connecting since the switchover... which is *weird* since I'm still using the same player in the player window, etc. I would suggest clearing your web browser cache and trying again. You might have tried to tune in on Friday when I was still tinkering with settings.
If you're keen to try something new, I'm a huge fan of the jetAudio player, which you can get from jetAudio.com. It supports m

Don't forget Sherie Rene Scott. She's on ALL the Sh-K-Boom albums. You'd think she married the guy that runs the label, or something.

I have to admit that I'm actually quite taken with the recording, myself. I can't imagine wanting to se it STAGED, but I'm really glad the studio recording happened because the music makes it well-worth the effort. The recording is in rotation on Broadwayworld Radio, if you'd like to hear it :)
