As part of our Independance Day celebration, files of Judy singing My Country Tis Of Thee at the 1941 Academy Awards and America The Beautiful from a 1964 television concert have been posted to the tahoo group.
Did you know Judy Garland is not only currently answering all questions, but she is even predicting the future??!!
Well, it's true!
Just click on this link and ask Judy anything:
The complete broadcast of Judy 4, 1943's The Pause That Refreshes program has been posted to the Yahoo version of The Judy Garland Experience.
This program was recorded and broadcast just a few days after Judy's spectacular concert debut at Philadelphia's Robin Hood Dell.
The Diva showdown continues over at the Yahoo experience. Rosemary Clooney, Ethel Merman, and Sarah Vaughan have already moved on to the semi-finals, and this week Bernadette Peters and Eliane Stritch, who incidentally will be starring together in A Little Night Music which will open on Broadway in less than a week, are facing off against eachother with the Sondheim staple Broadway Baby. Be sure to go to the Yahoo group and listen to both versions of the song and then go to the polling area and vote for your favorite.
The complete recording of Judy's August 31, 1967 concert on the Boston Common has been happily reposted to the Yahoo group.
Sponsered by the Knickebocker Beer company, this concert was more of an event, and the prospect of seeing the legendary Judy Garland performing on their neloved Common brought out 1/8 of the entire population of Boston to view the spectacle/event/happening.
Yet another episode of the Bing Crosby and Rosemary Clooney daily radio show has been posted to the Yahoo version of The Judy Garland Experience.
This week's episode was originally broadcast on April 4, 1960.
This week Lady Esther Blodgett Theater presents Judy Garland and Mickey Rooney in the radio adaptation of their hit movie Strike Up The Band.
Files for this program are now posted to the Yahoo experience, but will only be up until the end of the week.
The great Mildred Bailey makes her debut appearance at the yahoo version of The Judy Garland Experience this week, be sure to stop by and listen to her song stylings.
Several of Bailey's rare late 40's radio performances can be found in the Sunday Morning Special Folder
This week's WHERE JUDY PLAYED segment over at the Yahoo version od the experience features excerpts from a mid sixties concert Frank Sinatra performed at San Francisco's Curran Theater.
These files will be up for less than a week so please be dure to visit the Yahoo group to give them a listen.
