For our 62nd Kritzerland show, we look at the shows of our lives. Everyone has their own story of how they discovered show music and our October show is how producer/host Bruce Kimmel discovered show music and the shows and recordings that had an impact on him and influenced him from his childhood to his teens, during the Golden Age of both hits and flops.

It will be our usual compendium of the known and unknown as we cover such iconic shows as South Pacific, Bye Bye Birdie, The Most Happy Fella, Guys and Dolls, Gypsy, The Unsinkable Molly Brown, Flower Drum Song, Stop the World - I Want to Get Off, as well as lesser known shows like Wildcat, Irma la Douce, All American, Greenwillow, and the infamous Whoop-Up.

The songs are stellar and so is the cast we've assembled. So, join us for this little trip down memory lane and see how one person's shows of his life match up with your own. Because The Federal was booked out for a special event on our usual first Sunday, the show this month is on the third Sunday of the month, October 18th.

Kritzerland is produced and hosted by Bruce Kimmel and co-produced by Adryan Russ.
