IHGB Podcast #133: The Sound of Music

It’s time for another “It’s a Love Story” episode and for some of you, this is a doozy. For others, you may be annoyed by all the laughing. And coughing. 

You see, when I invited Mama to join me again on the show, she insisted on talking about The Sound of Music even though I told her it was more of a musical than a romance.

Instead of disowning me for suggesting such a thing, Mama got sick about an hour before we recorded, but she still wanted to go on. So she invited my sister Jamie to join us. 

My mother hacks up a lung, my sister wheezes, and I sort of sing. What more could you want in a podcast? FYI: I’m going to apologize now for the cold open. But I won’t apologize for the closer. 

It’s one of my favorite things.

This brings back great memories of when we did the musical in High School. My sister lucked out and got the part of Louisa (which I desperately wanted!), and I got the thrilling role of a party guest – I had to dance with a boy who was a full foot shorter than me, and had one whole line (or rather one word) – singing “Good-bye…” with the rest of the party guests at the end of “So Long, Farewell.” Sigh. Still – best time ever!!!

I remember how the ENTIRE cast gathered to watch the first time that Rolf and Liesl had to practice their kiss on stage! Ooooh! It was SUCH a big deal! (Well, this was about 35 years ago; it was a simpler time!)
