A Tribute to The Wizard of Oz the Movie

This week marked the 71st anniver­sary of the release of the icon­ic 1939 movie “The Wiz­ard of Oz”.  Today’s pro­gram on Radio Riel’s Main stream is all music that is some­how con­nect­ed to The Wiz­ard of Oz, from the orig­i­nal sound­track of the movie, to a 1998 Broad­way revival, to the sound­track to the musi­cal “Wicked”, to music from Judy Gar­land, to the songs that were at the top of the Hit Parade in 1939, and more!

As a part of today’s trib­ute, we are fea­tur­ing the 1950 Lux Radio Play of The Wiz­ard of Oz, star­ring Judy Gar­land.  The play will run at 1pm and 7pm SLT.

Note: The Wiz­ard of Oz is Gabrielle’s #1 favorite movie of all time, and it has been since she was six.  🙂

Radio Riel pro­duces this pro­gram in con­junc­tion with the Alexan­dri­an Free Library Con­sor­tium of Sec­ond Life. You can lis­ten to the pro­gram now at http://main.radioriel.org. Today’s music orig­i­nates from the music library of Gabrielle Riel.
