Under the Covers of MGM’s Wizard of Oz: a Playlist

With over 80 years of cover versions, the classic film features several memorable songs. For this playlist, we are focusing on some of the more unusual versions over the years. Included in this set-list are covers of Over the Rainbow by country music stars Homer & Jethro from 1947, Sammy Davis Jr.’s swinging 1966 version of Ding-Dong the Witch is Dead, an exotica version of We’re Off to See the Wizard from Martin Denny in 1960, and a 2005 The Flaming Lips’ cover of If I Only Had a Brain. Sit back, and enjoy these familiar songs in a whole new way. (18 minutes)

    1. The content is still set to “protected” until the weekend begins. I’ve asked our developer to add times to the tabs on the program schedule to help.

      Blair’s MGM Playlist is Friday Afternoon, so you can start listening throught that at 1. He has a different playlist for each day.

      Across the weekend, prerecorded Afternoon content opens at 1pm, Evenings at 5pm, and Mornings at 9 am — those times are Eastern Daylight.

      Live Zoom times are Friday at 9 pm, Saturday at 7 pm, and Sunday at 1 pm. Again, those are Eastern.

      You can see all the different topics under Presentation Blogs — and post questions.
