Continuing from my May show, this is Part 2 of Gay Musicals. This is not an organized history lesson.
Instead I jump around and sample a whole bunch of music from shows you haven't likely heard in
a while, or at all. A few come from demos, so may be getting their first airplay. And, in the second
segment Mark Winkler, one of the writers for "Naked Boys Singing," shares some comments.
