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!
This year’s collage features the following:
Shiri Maimon (Chicago); Heather Headley (The Color Purple); Rita Moreno (West Side Story, film); Brittney Johnson (Wicked)
Pearl Bailey (Hello, Dolly!); Chita Rivera & Gwen Verdon (Chicago); Lucie Bílá (Wildhorn’s Carmen); Lea Salonga (Allegiance)
Karen Olivo, Andrea Burns, Mandy Gonzalez, and Janet Dacal (In the Heights); Renee Elise Goldsberry, Phillipa Soo, and Jasmine Cephas Jones (Hamilton); Peppermint (Head Over Heels)
Sydney Lucas & Beth Malone (Fun Home); Katrina Lenk (The Band’s Visit); Pat Suzuki & Miyoshi Umeki (Flower Drum Song); Keala Settle, Jessie Mueller, and Kimiko Glenn (Waitress the Musical)
On an added note- we need more Middle Eastern/Arab/Indian actors & actresses on Broadway!
The poll for this month’s special is ready to go!

There are more than 20 choices for you, our listeners, to pick from for the month of March. We added both a Showcase and Theme in dedication to Women’s History Month. Food and Celebration options have also been added since Mardi Gras and St. Patrick’s Day are this month.
How Does the Monthly Special Work?
Once a month, we host what we call a monthly special. The special is decided by a poll open to our listeners with a selection of shows and themes. Descriptions on the types of specials can be found on our programming page, under the “Monthly Specials” tab. Polls open at the beginning of the month and close one week prior on the Tuesday at 9 PM CST (2100).
Running time usually goes to 2-hours, unless noted. Depending on the winner, there may be an intermission and/or pre-show.
We post updates pertaining to these via our Twitter and Facebook page.
