August 30, 2022

In the first half hour, Sue Jowell presents Part 6, the final part of The Musical – More Than Entertainment. In this episode, Sue looks at the legacy of Rodgers and Hammerstein, who were largely responsible for the Golden Age of musicals in the 20th century.

My special guest at 11:00 am is Fran Dorey, Exhibitions Manager at the Australian Museum and our topic of conversation is us: human beings and how we got to be us, since walking out of Africa. Did you know that we all have between 1%-4% Neanderthal genes, proving that we did breed with this other species of human. And did you know that red hair is part of that genetic material?

Music is still all about musicals.

Do join me!
