Musical Soundtracks

At the heart of any musicals themed radio show, if of course the musical soundtracks! The Musicals Way features music from up to 40 different musicals in every episode, but our producers have hundreds to choose from - so you'll never get bored of hearing the same tracks! We usually aim to find songs that put a smile on your face and get you feeling good!

Musical Theatre News

Every week, Oli updates you on the top musical theatre headlines from the week. Whether it's a cast change, a new show opening, new laws for performers or something completely different, you'll always be fully informed and up to date!

The Long Song of the Week

Many musical soundtracks feature a song or two that is just a bit longer than all the rest (usually 6-8 minutes). If we played lots of these in every episode, then we wouldn't be able to play such a diverse range of musicals. However, we pick one 'long song' every week so that you have the chance to hear a song which gives you a better taste of the musical.

Spot the Encore

One of the games we play on The Musicals Way is called 'Spot the Encore'. Every good musical has some kind of a reprise or an encore of a song, so we introduced one into the show! All you need to do is work what song is being reprised and then get in touch to let us know.


NEW: In future episodes, we will be interviewing a great variety of people from the world of musical theatre.
