Hey guys and dolls!
Remember how the past two Monthly specials had to be put on hold due to our CD drive not working anymore? We’ve kept up with this more on our social media.
Great news! We finally bought one, and are already compiling our CDs (and rips of LPs on CDs) for new tracks, as well as the eventual programming of both March’s (Women in History) + April’s (French Musicals) Monthly Specials! These will have to still wait a awhile since our trifecta of Tony Award- related specials are always hosted in May and June.
So, starting next week, you’ll be hearing those new tracks!
Thanks for sticking around!
Same time next week, we have bigger news to announce! Spoiler, its already on the site a few times, but we will formally announce it next week!
March’s Monthly Special [Theme] Women in History is postponed to April due to scheduling conflicts. April’s special is still scheduled for the end of its month, and the poll will be up by Friday, April 5th. This one will be trimmed down considerably compared to previous polls since our return.
I’m sorry for the inconvenience. The new date has yet to be determined, but we are aiming for before or on the second week of April.
On the bright side- y’all are getting two specials in one month! We usually only do that for May and June for the Tony Awards!
We at the Mixed Bag wanna wish y’all a Happy International Women’s Day!
Let’s celebrate the incredible women in our lives and in the world! #girlpower
There were soo many shows and actresses I wanted to use, but not enough space. Well, there’s always next year!
