For the first of the new Million Sellers shows this year, we are going down a different road.

In the 1930s up to now, but more especially during its heyday in the 40’s and 50’s, the musicals scene garnered lots of popularity, and more especially, lots and lots of ticket sales.  The classic days of Metro Goldwyn Mayer musicals was, and still is, looked at by Hollywood critics as the “Golden Age” of the big screen musical.  With names like Fred Astaire, Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra and a whole host of other top singers covering and in some cases singing the original show tune tracks, it was the time when MGM simply could not be beat.

Disney on the other hand, went down a different road, a road they have become famous for…entertaining the kids.  The Disney musicals was just as lavish, just as feature rich and starred names which had already become household names for their work on radio and stage.

Part 1 of the this multipart Musical Million Seller looks to the age of MGM and Disney Musicals.

Together with the broadcast, residents within Second Life can listen in live as well by going to Radio Riel’s “Clarendon” in the City State of New Babbage.
