In those quite boring times especially at sunday Radio Luxemburg was the real Star in the Sky. Falling asleep with that Great Music. I worshipped those broadcasts.

This is truly a fantastic site for Radio Luxembourg fans Well done Dick for your hard work here over the years Following on from my last posting It is so very familiar, and yet I'm not sure that I remember it being used on at all. It certainly was most appropriate for the station, and fits comfortably with the time, but maybe somebody out there can shed some light on this one for me.

Luxembourg was a lifesaver in the sixties, when the BBC had the monopoly on broadcasting. I heard so much great stuff on Luxembourg, that I would never have heard via the Beeb. Fantastic memories Goodbye - Various - Dep Verano 2003 Rock the "left ear in the speaker, right hand on the tuning knob" technique.
Anna stands her ground and insists on the letter of her contract, threatening to leave Siam, much to the dismay of wives and children. The King orders her to obey as "my servant"; she repudiates the term and hurries away. The King dismisses school, then leaves, uncertain of his next action. Lady Thiang, the King's head wife, tells Anna that the King Put Your Hands Up - Various - Best Of 538 Dance Smash - Summer Edition troubled by his portrayal in the West as a barbarian, as the British are being urged to take over Siam as a protectorate.
Anna is shocked by Boozoo Bajou - Camioux accusations — the King is a polygamist, but he is no barbarian — but she is reluctant to see him after their argument. Lady Thiang convinces her that the King is deserving of support "Something Wonderful".
Anna goes to him and finds him anxious for reconciliation. The King tells her that the British are sending an envoy to Bangkok to evaluate the situation. Anna "guesses" — the only guise in which the King will accept advice — that the King will receive the envoy in European style, and that the wives will be dressed in Western fashion. Tuptim has been writing a play based on a book that Anna has lent her, Uncle Tom's Cabinthat can be presented to the guests. News is brought to the King that the British are arriving much earlier than thought, and so Anna and Nightrain - Guns N Roses - Appetite For Destruction wives are to stay up all night to prepare.
The King assembles his family for a Buddhist prayer for the success of the venture and also promises before Buddha that Anna will receive her own house "as provided in agreement, etc. The wives are dressed in their new European-style gowns, which they find confining "Western People Funny".
In the rush to prepare, the question of undergarments has been overlooked, and the wives have practically nothing on underneath their gowns. When the British envoy, Sir Edward Ramsay, arrives and gazes at them through a monocle, they are panicked by the "evil eye" and lift their skirts over their heads as they flee. Sir Edward is diplomatic about the incident.
When the King is called away, it emerges that Sir Edward is an old flame of Anna's, and they dance in remembrance of old times, as Edward urges her to return to British society. The King returns and irritably reminds them that dancing is for after dinner. As final preparations for the play are made, Tuptim steals a moment to meet with Lun Tha. He tells her he has an escape plan, and she should be ready to leave after the performance "I Have Dreamed".
Anna encounters them, and they confide in her "Hello, Young Lovers", reprise. The play " Small House of Uncle Thomas ", narrated ballet is presented in a Siamese ballet-inspired dance. Tuptim is the narrator, and she tells her audience of the evil King Simon of Legree and his pursuit of the runaway slave Eliza.
Eliza is saved by Buddhawho miraculously freezes a river and conceals her in snow. Buddha then causes the river to melt, drowning King Simon and his hunting party. The anti-slavery message is blunt. After the play, Sir Edward reveals that the British threat has receded, but the King is distracted by his displeasure at Tuptim's rebellious message. After Sir Edward leaves, Anna and the King express their delight at how well the evening went, and he presents her with a ring.
Secret police report that Tuptim is missing. The King realizes that Anna knows something; she parries his inquiry by asking why he should care: Tuptim is just another woman to him. He is delighted; she is at last understanding the Siamese perspective. Anna tries to explain to him the Western customs of courtship and tells him Put Your Hands Up - Various - Best Of 538 Dance Smash - Summer Edition it is like for a young woman at a formal dance "Shall We Dance?
He demands that she teach him the dance. She does, and in that dance they experience and express a love for each other that they can never speak aloud. They are interrupted by the Kralahome. Tuptim has been captured, and a search is on for Lun Tha.
The King resolves to punish Tuptim, though she denies she and Lun Tha were lovers. Anna tries to dissuade him, but he is determined that her influence shall not rule, and he takes the whip himself. He turns to lash Tuptim, but under Anna's gaze is unable to swing the whip, and hurries away.
Lun Tha is found dead, and Tuptim is dragged off, swearing to kill herself; nothing more is heard about her. Anna asks the Kralahome to give her ring back to the King; both schoolteacher and minister state their wish that she had never come to Siam. Several months pass with no contact between Anna and the King. Anna is packed Put Your Hands Up - Various - Best Of 538 Dance Smash - Summer Edition ready to board a ship leaving Siam.
Chulalongkorn arrives with a letter from the King, who has been unable to resolve the conflicts within himself and is dying. Anna hurries to the King's bedside and they reconcile.
The King persuades her to take back the ring and to stay and assist the next king, Chulalongkorn. The dying man tells Anna to take dictation from the prince, and instructs the boy to give orders as if he were King. The prince orders the end of the custom of kowtowing that Anna hated. The King grudgingly accepts this decision. As Chulalongkorn continues, prescribing a less arduous bow to show respect for the king, his father dies. Anna kneels by the late King, holding his hand and kissing it, as the wives and children bow or curtsey, a gesture of respect to old king and new.
Act I . Act II . The King and I opened on Broadway on March 29,with a wide expectation of a hit by the press and public. Both Hammerstein and Rodgers professed to be worried. The composer complained that most people were not concerned about whether the show was good, but whether it was better than South Pacific. Even the weather cooperated: heavy rain in New York stopped in time to allow the mostly wealthy or connected opening night audience to arrive dry at the St.
Brynner turned in an outstanding performance that night, nearly stealing the show. Lawrence knew that the company was nervous because of her illnesses. The director, John van Druten, described how her opening night performance put all worries to rest: "She came on the stage with a new and dazzling quality, as if an extra power had been granted to the brilliance of her stage light.
She was radiant and wonderful. The show won the Tony for best musical, and designers Mielziner and Sharaff received awards in their categories. De Lappe remembered the contrast between Lawrence's indifferent singing voice and the force of her performance:.
I used to listen to Gertrude Lawrence on the public address system every night in our dressing rooms, and she'd get onto a note and sag down off of it. She had such a star quality, you didn't care if she sang off-key. She more than dominated the stage. Boy, was that a lesson to me. Lawrence had not yet discovered that she was dying from liver cancerand her weakened condition was exacerbated by the demands of her role.
Lawrence found it hard to bear the heat in the theatre during the summer months. Understudy Constance Carpenter began replacing her in matinee performances. Later in the year Lawrence's strength returned, and she resumed her full schedule, but by Christmas she was battling pleurisy and suffering from exhaustion.
She entered the hospital for a full week of tests. Just nine months before her death, the cancer still was not detected. In Februarybronchitis felled her for another week, and her husband Richard Aldrich asked Rodgers and Hammerstein if they would consider closing the show for Easter week to give her a chance to recover fully.
They denied his request, but agreed to replace her with the original Ado Annie from Oklahoma! She slipped into a coma and died on September 6,aged Her autopsy revealed liver cancer.
On the day of her funeral, the performance of The King and I was cancelled. Carpenter assumed the role of Anna and went on to play it for performances. James Theatre accidentally struck him in the nose with a piece of scenery, another time due to appendicitis. The last of the production's 1, performances was on March 20, The run was, at the time, the fourth longest ever for a Broadway musical.
The tour played in 30 cities, closing on December 17,at the Shubert Theatre, Philadelphia. The original London production opened on October 8,at the Theatre Royal, Drury Laneand was warmly received by both audiences and critics;  it ran for performances. Atkinson commented, " The King and I is a beautifully written musical drama on a high plane of human thinking. It can survive in a mediocre performance. The musical was soon premiered in Australia, Japan, and throughout Europe.
Roger Redfarn directed, and Sheila O'Neill choreographed. Although he was enthusiastic about Howes as Anna, Billington thought Wyngarde "too fragile to be capable of inspiring unholy terror". He noted that "she sings beautifully and the songs are the evening's real justification".
In earlyBrynner received an offer from impresarios Lee Gruber and Shelly Gross to star, in the role that he had created 25 years before, in a U. On opening night, Brynner suffered so badly from laryngitis that he lip-synchedwith his son Rock singing and speaking the role from the orchestra pit. The production traveled across the United States, selling out every city it appeared in and finally opening in New York Dirty (Dirty) - Slum Village - Dirty / Do You the Uris Theatre today the Gershwin Theatre on May 2, Sharaff again designed costumes, and Michael Kermoyan reprised the Put Your Hands Up - Various - Best Of 538 Dance Smash - Summer Edition of the Kralahome,  while June Angela was Tuptim.
Brynner insisted on renovations to the Uris before he would play there, stating that the theatre resembled "a public toilet". According to his biographer Michelangelo Capua, for years afterwards, performers thanked Brynner for having backstage facilities across the country cleaned up. Brynner grinning fire and snorting charm is as near to the original as makes little difference" and called Towers "piquantly ladylike and sweet without being dangerously saccharine".
The tour was extended inafter the New York run, still starring Brynner and Towers. The production then opened in the West End, at the London Palladiumon June 12,and was reported to have the largest advance sale in English history. Brynner stated, "It is not a play, it is a happening.
Brynner took only a few months off after the London run ended, which contributed to his third divorce; he returned to the road in early in an extended U. When Brynner opened in the original production inhe was the newcomer and Gertrude Lawrence the established star. Now, 33 years and 4, performances later, he is the king of the mountain as well as the show The genius of his performance — and it must be some sort of genius to maintain a character this Taint (Needledick Mix) - Various - Forced Womanhood — is its simplicity.
There is not a superfluous expression nor a vague gesture. And if at times, Put Your Hands Up - Various - Best Of 538 Dance Smash - Summer Edition arms on hips posture, the shining dome and fierce expression remind one of Mr.
Cleanit should be remembered that Brynner was there first. The star aside, such showmanship is too often lacking in this King and I. Not even his one dance number Rodgers and Hammerstein's King [is] supposed to be a compelling personality [but Nureyev's] bears no resemblance to the man described The show therefore comes across as something of a charade The first major revival to break away from the original staging and interpretation was an Australian production directed by Christopher Renshawstarring Hayley Mills as Anna, in Renshaw pointedly ignored the printed stage directions in the script  when reshaping the piece into what he called "an authentic Thai experience".
Renshaw said, "The elephant is regarded as a very holy creature Stanley Green, in his Encyclopedia of the Musical Theatreviewed the central theme of The King and I as "the importance of mutual understanding between people of differing ethnic and cultural backgrounds",  but Renshaw felt that the musical Put Your Hands Up - Various - Best Of 538 Dance Smash - Summer Edition from s attitudes when "Orientalism was used as an exoticism rather than a real understanding of the particular culture.
A feature in Playbill commented that the production Put Your Hands Up - Various - Best Of 538 Dance Smash - Summer Edition on the "clash of ideologies and cultures, of East versus West". Jenna Ushkowitz made her Broadway debut as one of the children.
