'Love is in the Air-waves!' 24 Hours of Love Songs from Broadway Musicals on Radio

'Love is in the Air-waves!' 24 Hours of Love Songs from Broadway Musicals on Radio

NEW YORK, Feb. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Happy Valentine's Day! From 12:01 AM on Wednesday, February 14th to midnight of the same day, Radio ( is doing something unprecedented by programming 24 hours of airplay exclusively comprised of love songs from Broadway musicals.

It's the web site's Valentine's Day offering for its fans and anyone who wants to log on and hear a Broadway history soundtrack of love through the years, via the Great White Way.

What does that mean exactly? Who better to write love songs than some of Broadway's great composers and lyricists, creating timeless characters for the stage, resulting, in many cases ... in legendary performances.

The great thing about Broadway characters singing these love songs is that they might not always be the happiest or the most idyllic, so the web site offers LOVE in all its complications and colors, all it's machinations and joy. Over 24 hours you'll hear, about love -- the good, the bad, the ugly, the unrequited, the imaginary, the heart-jumping and the heart-stomping.

Covering a rich array of time, place and circumstance, you'll hear songs from musicals such as AVENUE Q and BARE to BELLS ARE RINGING and THE COLOR PURPLE, DREAMGIRLS and THE DROWSY CHAPERONE to GYPSY and HAIR, SWEENEY TODD to THE WEDDING SINGER, URINETOWN to SIDE SHOW, JERSEY BOYS (congratulations on your GRAMMY Award!) to MAMMA MIA!, LES MISERABLES, THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA...and everything in between.

Add this to classic musicals by some of the greatest composers ever to pen classics, including Rodgers and Hammerstein, Rodgers and Hart, Jerome Kern, the Gershwins, Cole Porter and just about anybody else that you can think of and you're in for an exhausting day of love.

Knock yourselves out and tune in to Radio ( for 24 hours of love songs, and nothing but love songs, from Broadway -- past and present.

We guarantee that it'll be more fun than receiving candy or flowers..."but Diamonds are a girl's best friend!"
