What ARE the greatest showtunes of all time?

As stages go dark, B105 will celebrate Brisbane’s favourite showtunes ALL DAY tomorrow!


Brisbane’s stages may be dark and silent right now as the city works through the latest lockdown, but that doesn’t mean that the greatest showtunes of all time can’t be celebrated – and that’s just what B105 is doing this week!

In a move that’s sees the station throw away their playlist, B105 Content Director, Jack Ball, said that tomorrow, Thursday, B105 will count down the 50 best showtunes of all time – as voted by Brisbane!

“We know that all shows in Brisbane have had to close, including Come From Away, which had its opening night on Sunday, so we are determined to celebrate the magic of musicals and theatre on air by finding Brisbane’s favourite showtunes,” he said.

“The trouble is, what IS the best showtune of all time? It’s a question as old as time …”

Ball said to expect a handful of Hamilton bangers after the international hit opened in Sydney last week, with Australia now the only country in the world where the production is playing.

“Yes, you’ll need to be in the room when it happens THIS THURSDAY because B105 is not throwing away their shot! Excuse the Hamilton puns!” Ball said.

Huge hits from some of the best musical and stage shows of all time will be aired – think Chicago, Moulin Rouge, Hairspray, Book of Mormon, Rent, Les Misérables, Wicked, Dreamgirls, Jersey Boys, Cats, Mamma Mia and The Lion King - just to name a few!
