STUART BROWN | West Hartford, CT

ATCA member Stuart Brown has just launched  a 24/7 online Broadway music radio station – “Sounds of Broadway” (www.SoundsofBroadway.com) — which offers a wide-ranging listing of music from the Off-Broadway, Broadway, and London stages. Thousands of songs from hundreds of cast recordings are in rotation, with dozens of new shows being added weekly.

“There will be the popular and well-known musicals,” Brown says.  “But, unlike other online radio stations, there will also be selections from more obscure or little heard of musicals.”  One of the central features will be a two-hour all-request time slot from 6:00-8:00PM every day.  “Everyone has their favorite songs they want to hear and this will give listeners the opportunity to do so,” said Brown.  “If this proves popular we’ll look at expanding it.”  Other specialty programming includes such thematic slots as “The Best of Forbidden Broadway,” “Lost in Boston,” and “Nothing But Overtures.”  “By the end of March we’ll be adding another show that features music from all the golden age MGM musicals.  We’ll also have programming corresponding with holidays, such as Halloween and Christmas; performer’s birthdays; and special times of the year, such as the start of school in the fall.”
