Wxpo is on the air!

Jan. 25th, 2007 | 04:05 pm
posted by: jezebelpussycat in bostonofftopic

It's hard to believe it's only twenty-three days until The Great Boston Burlesque Exposition (www.Burlesque-Expo.com)! We're very excited to see you all in Boston -- and we hope you're excited too!  We've got all kinds of things going on, media appearances and kick-off events.  We hope you can join us -- if not in person, than on the air!

Monday, Jan. 29 at 4 p.m. (Eastern time) Scratch and a bevy of burlesquers will appear in a one-hour special on everything burlesque: the modern burlesque scene, burlesque history (in Boston and beyond), The Great Boston Burlesque Exposition, and more.  We'll be listening to a couple of cuts off of Make Some Noise: The Soundtrack to The Great Boston Burlesque Exposition, and – if we're lucky – even talking to a few of the musicians.

The show will air from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. on WSCA radio, 106.1 FM out of Portsmouth, NH and stream live at http://mail.wscafm.org/_/

It's a call-in show, so listen and talk back live at (603) 430-9722.  We'd love to hear from you!

Saturday, Feb. 3rd at 1:30 p.m. (Eastern time) "Blues and Beyond" on WMFO (91.5 FM Boston, MA).  You can listen to the program live on the web at http://www.WMFO.org and even call in to (617) 627-3800.

Monday, Feb. 5th at 7pm Boffo Box Office – Dancing girls! Desserts! Film noir! Who could ask for more? Boffo Box Office gives you more! We start the evening with Boston historian David Kruh and a lecture and slide show on The Old Howard, Boston's most significant burlesque hall.  Following the lecture is a screening of Lady of Burlesque, starring Barbara Stanwyck.  The film was based on the novel The G-String Murders by Gypsy Rose Lee, possibly the most famous 'lady of burlesque'. After the credits roll,  The Boston Babydolls take the stage to give you a little taste of heaven, right in Brookline.  If your sweet tooth isn't satisfied by burlesque dance, the party moves around the corner to Finale (1306 Beacon Street) for a buffet of tempting treats.  Tickets are $12 for the movie, lecture, and show; $30 for the party; and only $36 for both! Tickets on sale at www.BostonBabydolls.net/coolidge.php
