ANYTHING GOES!! with Lise Avery
Mondays, 9:00AM to 1:00PM Eastern Time
Anything Goes !! is a specialty radio show consisting of A HIP mix of swing, jazz, standards and Broadway and a little bit of ‘anything else’ thrown into the mix (including Groucho Marx, Bill Cosby and a touch of World Music.) Host/Producer Lise Avery creates a unique blend of music from the perspective of, and with the adeptness of a bandleader to create a variety of moods. Ms. Avery’s experience as a cabaret vocalist adds a broad knowledge of the nuances and the history of the music she plays and her program is ‘peppered’ with facts and anecdotes about the artists and the material incorporated into any edition of Anything Goes !!
Anything Goes!! currently airs fourteen times a week internationally: nine times a week on five stations in the New York Metro area; once each week in Texas, once each week in Florida; twice each week in Melbourne Australia and once each week in Adelaide, Australia. Each week Anything Goes!! is heard for nearly 100 miles around the New York area reaching into New York City, Northern New Jersey, Southern and Central Connecticut, Westchester, Rockland and Sullivan Counties in New York and Nassau County on Long Island.
Since it first appeared on the air in the NY Metro area in 1998, Anything Goes!! has built a very loyal following. Anything Goes!! listeners are linked by interests and attitude rather than age and are often involved in the arts, education and music. Listeners are evenly spread amongst all age groups with a slight peak in the 31 - 39 and 65 + groups. They range from students to blue collar workers, to professionals, to retirees. A typical Anything Goes!! listener is well-educated, sophisticated, arts, music and travel-oriented and has a good deal of disposable income. More in-depth demographics can be supplied upon request.
What makes Anything Goes!! especially unique is the unexpected segues from one genre of music to another. Songs in a mix have their own unique relationship whether that relationship is thematic or musical, or perhaps both. It is Ms. Avery’s intent to adroitly combine the new and the familiar, the classic with the contemporary and the wistful with the humorous.
The international distribution of Anything Goes!! is currently underway.
