Radio host Bud Wilkinson will chat with Leavel about her own plans for New Year's Eve and what she speculates her tipsy alter ego "Beatrice Stockwell" might do to toast a highball to 2007. They'll also remember the Tony-winning star's whirlwind year bringing the hit musical to Broadway.
Wilkinson will feature songs from the Grammy Award-nominated original cast recording of The Drowsy Chaperone, including "I Do, I Do in the Sky," "Love Is Always Lovely in the End," "Show Off" and Leavel's new Broadway anthem "As We Stumble Along."
"Broadway's Biggest Hits," the syndicated radio show devoted to the best of Broadway, can be heard on New Haven's WQUN (AM 1220) at 7 AM and Poughkeepsie's WKIP (AM 1450) at 1 PM Sunday Dec. 31. It will also air on two-dozen stations across the country, including Seattle's KIXI (AM 880) at 6 PM Sunday, Phoenix's KOY (AM 1230) at 9 AM Sunday, Denver's KEZW (AM 1430) at noon Sunday, Toronto's CHWO (AM 740) at 3 PM Sunday, Milwaukee's WOKY (AM 920) at 5 PM Sunday and Syracuse's WTLA (AM 1200) at noon Saturday Dec. 30.
