PMB071: Singing Stars of Stage and ScreenA suitably epic edition of the show this week as we celebrate the world of thespians who have attempted to moonlight as singers, with varying degrees of success. Marvel at septuagenarian Mae West rocking out, Telly Savalas’ invention of new musical notes, the alternative universe where Grease was made by elderly Brits and the tropical sound of calypso in entirely the wrong hands.
