Welcome to Zelina's Mixed Bag of Showtunes

This mixed bag offers a variety of stage shows, films, TV, and other soundtracks!
Updates

Evening everyone, it time's for this month's updates!
  1. The mobile-version of the site is officially a-go! If you visit our desktop page (http://www.little-miss-alto.org/mixbag/) on a mobile device, you will be redirected to the one you are currently viewing (http://m.little-miss-alto.org/mixbag). An attempt to make it ADA-compatible was made, and we'd like to thank Crystal Dennis for her advice on the matter.

  2. On both versions of the site, the Last Played page is back online!

  3. Since Mid- April, we have added more than 120 tracks to the station. That includes many of German musicals (and German versions of shows) for Stage Shows, an abundance of Tokyo Disneyland tracks for Park, a bunch of new tracks for our Anime & Games segment, and a good handful of love given to both TV & Vocalist. We are working on getting some tracks from the newer shows of the 2017-18 season of Broadway.

  4. The Tonys have been announced. What are your thoughts on them?

    Our Premiere Monthly Special will be dedicated to winners of the past Tony winners for New Musical, and Revivals. On Wednesday, May 23, at 9 PM (CST), we'll be playing a track or two from a Best Musical winners in chronological order. An encore presentation will be aired the next day, May 24th, at 6 AM (CST) to accommodate listeners of other time zones.

    Just a heads up: in our research in gathering tracks, we learned that not all shows had an (original) cast recording. If we can find studio or cover versions of a song (while trying to avoid Broadway revival versions), we will put it in its place.

    In June, we plan to do the same with Revivals, and on the week of Tonys, showcase tracks from this year's nominees in both categories. If you already have a song'd you like from any of these, and would like to nudge-nudge wink-wink for them to be featured, you can reply to us on Facebook, Twitter or use our request form!

  5. Last, but not least, we are considering switching hosts. This is still highly in debate, but we may in the near future put up a Patreon and/or donation button with a monthly goal in mind to help pay for the hosting should we go through with this.

    Aside from paying for royalties and the hosting, we will no longer have geo-blocks affecting our stream. That means that you'll be able to listen to the station, no matter what country you are in, or what program or app you are using!. This is a plus for a lot of our US and Latin American users.

    This station is a labor of love, but also an already expensive one. With the new possible host, we would be looking at no more than $15-$20 a month. Any money made after that would be used to acquire new tracks, and saved for future months. A final decision won't be made until the fall.

It has been a month since the re-start of the Mixed Bag. Enjoying it so far? Here are a few updates that have been happening since then:
  1. The mobile version of the site is underway. This is our first venture into mobile-friendly site building, so please be patient as this get done. We hope to have it ready before our 2nd month anniversary!

    And yes, we will try to have it accessible according to ADA suggestions. We are planning to move some of these adjustments to this site as well.

  2. The special has been pushed to April, and the date will be posted on both our twitter and Facebook.
  3. Every Wednesday, we change out some songs with new ones.
  4. Due to Daylight Savings Time, programming is an hour off. Please be patient as we fix this issue.

Zelina’s Mixed Bags of Showtunes is officially a-go! So start sending in those requests and suggestions!

Also, the first special will be scheduled for late-March, and it deals with the Tony Awards! Plans to do an Olivier-counterpart is dependent if I can get the tracks I’d need.

We are almost ready, y’all! The site is almost done, and the radio is ready for release! Remember that the new streaming link is at
http://listen.radionomy.com/zelina-smixedbagofshowtunes. Things have changed a bit with the service we use, that include some listening limitations. However, we hope to make the best of it, and find as many solutions for our listeners. If you’d like, you can start requesting stuff already! And please be on the look out for themed specials and news a musical-based podcast, At This Performance (working title), from the folks over at YNIN Podcasts.

Fingers crossed that we can officially open right after St. Valentine's day!
