So, what are your thoughts on Boba Fett helping out Darth Vader in Star Wars? Or Oddjob in James Bond? “Un-Block The Music’s” favorite sidekick to the villain is Gaston’s guy Lefou in Beauty and The Beast. On Saturday at noon (Eastern Time), you may find a new favorite after you hear Dr. Jeff and Jacob Foy talk about “Carla,” a character in their show Emergency The Musical.
In case you don’t know, “Un-Block The Music” has been following Emergency’s path to the New York stage since the Foys won a grant to help produce the show from Ken Davenport’s Inner Circle (https://unblockthemusic.blog/2019/01/09/its-an-emergency-as-father-son-recipients-of-ken-davenport-grant-set-sights-on-nyc/). Sgt. Dan, McCaughan is not only a show writer himself, but a radio show host, and he graciously asked Un-Block The Music to be part of his WYFL 1180 AM’s broadcast of “From Bullets To Broadway, Anatomy of A Broadway Show.” (www.BroadwayBullets.com.) Each segment of the radio show focuses on different aspects of creating a musical with memorable characters and songs. Last week, we heard the song “Family Affair” sung by the main villain Kyle and Carla, his sidekick aunt. This week we hear a new song, “Queen Of the Hill.”
After the show, I will continue the conversation with Jeff and Jacob started by Dan on the air. Then, you should sign on to “Un-Block The Music” Monday to find out what other “evil” tidbits I uncover.
If you think of any questions when listening to the broadcast, you should email Dan at firstname.lastname@example.org (www.1180wfyl.com) or myself at email@example.com. If they address the questions on the air, you will receive an “Emergency T-Shirt.”
