Show 37 -- Movin' Melvin Brown, Susan Branch Towne, Ann Ciccoella

Another fun show.... We just love the hour format!!!

Movin' Melvin Brown came on the show, sang his heart out and TAP DANCED!!! You heard right.. tap danced on the radio. We had so much fun! His show "A Man, A Magic, A Music" plays this week (1/27 - 1/31) at the Blue Theatre as part of Frontera Fest.... Go See It!!

We were lucky enough to have, not one, but two Austin theatre icons on the show. Susan Branch Towne whose costume designs can be seen on almost all the Austin stages as well as all over the world. We also were joined by Ann Ciccoella, Artistic Director of Austin Shakespeare, Educator and advocate for the arts.

What a great show!
