The Entertainment Beat with Frances Gumm - #15

Judy Garland returns with a 'haute couture' rendition of Andrew Lloyd Webber's "As If We Never Said Goodbye"; She discloses the real story behind Tootie's "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" breakdown; Judy, Roger and Bill cover the Tribeca Film Festival; Carol Channing, Bernadette Peters and Gollum stop in from a local acid rain mixer for their usual fun and frivolity; Judy and Bernadette sing "Faithless Love" backed by the mostly-Bill So-Not Björk Medúlla Boola Choir; Betty Buckley puts us on hold; Judy closes out the episode with Stephen Sondheim's "Goodbye For Now"; and of course, much much more!

Ok, so I deleted my last one, becuase on top of lauding your work, I HAD to say thank you for bringing back Buckley! It totally made my day.

Brilliant as always, I'm so glad you're back with a new podcast. I love the listener call-ins segment, as well as the additional guests.

And I was so excited when you started to cover Madonna's "Sorry". Hope you'll sing the rest soon :)

My regards to you and your producers.

Oh my God! Just got pointed here by Dan Turning 40. I've listened to 4 or 5 of these today. This is frakking fantastic stuff!

Off the wall and extremely talented!
And I don't even know much Judy!

The thought of Judy using a cell phone makes me giggle...

Yeah Judy shouldn't have teased us with the opening of "Sorry."

Once again, it's not enough! I want more Judy! MORE MORE MORE! We need you to give until there's just nothing left to give.
...
ok. I'll take what's doled out and be happy with it.
Excellent episode. As always!

Well done. And well worth waiting for. Judy doing "As If We Never Said Goodbye" is the stuff that dreams are made of (and so is Carol's Gandolf!). Soon, perhaps, "Here's To The Ladies Who Lunch" or "I'm Still Here"?

the "nobody drinks my tea" line was genius--

the hardcore Judyites love those nods...

Yeah this is why podcasting is such a fucking brilliant medium. This is a terrific show, I was brought here by Dan from Turning 40. I loved your rendition of the song from Sunset Boulevard!
