Alex On The Beeb!

13 Apr

Alex is going to sing live on Radio Three on Monday.

That’s on THE BBC – OUR NATIONAL BROADCASTING SERVICE!  THE BBC! BBC RADIO!  He has to TRAVEL DOWN TO LONDON!  On a TRAIN!

I’m not at all excited.

No automatic alt text available.

I don’t have any details yet, except that he’ll be performing with Debra Finch, his singing partner in the last few Broadway shows he’s done; and it’s to promote their next show, Lerner & Loewe’s The Day Before Spring, which hasn’t had a full performance since 1953 – which is probably why the BBC is interested.

I’ll update this post with details when I have them.

In the meanwhile, picture me on Easter Monday, sitting glued to the radio all day – or TV, in this case, as everyone listens to the radio via their TV these days.  Or maybe glued to my phone, waiting for Alex to remember his doting mother, up in the northern wilds of Britain, anticipating that text which will tell her what time he’s going to be LIVE ON THE BBC (radio, admittedly; and not even the MAIN radio station, but STILL, it’s the BBC, you KNOW).

No, I’m not at all excited.

    Oh, my GOODNESS! Girl, that is an amazing thing! And Lerner & Loewe? Wow! I am so happy for you!
    And, I may be wrong, but it sounds like it’s something we could somehow listen to, over here? Oh, I am so excited for you! (Since you don’t have the sense to be excited for yourself, of course…) 😉
    But, from the northern wilds?—I could be wrong again, and correct me if I am, but isn’t that same soil that produced the Bronte tribe? Good stuff, that soil!
    I am so happy for you ALL! 🙂

    BBC Radio 3 is the grown-ups music station. I’ll be listening on a real radio… well a modern one with speakers. Oh go on girl, get excited, mothers (and fathers) are allowed to be proud of their offspring.

        Did something go awry at the weekend, Tilly? I saw something in the Reader but didn’t have time to stop and read it. Just remembered now, seeing your comment. 🙂

    Awesome for him!!!! That is amazing. I fully expect to see him in full period costume for the next season of Taboo on the BBC. You can ring up Tom Hardy, right? 🙂
