Today, May 21, the BBC Radio 2 broadcasts the first part of the 6-installment series BALL OVER BROADWAY.

It features Michael Ball as annotator and interviewer. Music from the show and interviews with main cast members will be featured for six Broadway shows, each one to be broadcast weekly. I am not sure but I think this marks the 3rd series featured on BBC Radio 2, with Michael as host.

I understand that WICKED will be the first featured show broadcast at 19:00 to 19:30 GMT today, May 21.

Yep, this is the third series, although as I remember the last one was interupted by Sept 11th, and I don't know if the last few episodes were broadcast?

Anyway, it's a good series for introductions to shows that haven't come over here yet

Very good show on the coverage of WONDERFUL TOWN. The music and the narration by Michael was flowing and quite effective, given that is barely a half-hour show. Michael was also able to talk to Betty Comden, someone from the Production team, and Clive Barnes.

You can listen to it again on the Radio 2 LISTEN AGAIN facility.

Very timely, given that this is the TONY weekend and Hugh hosts the event as well as being expected to win the Best Actor in a Musical award.
