Rob Morrison's next "Musical Theatre Melodies" broadcast on Tuesday, 13th May at 9 p.m. will feature a 60th Anniversary tribute to Richard Adler and Jerry Ross's The Pajama Game, (based on the novel 7½ Cents by Richard Bissell), from the original 1954 Broadway cast recording starring John Raitt, Janis Page, Eddie Foy Jr., Stanley Prager, Reta Shaw and Carol Haney.

This will be preceded by a 'live' telephone introduction to the musical from New York-based theatre critic and Internet columnist Peter Filichia.

And will be followed by an archival radio interview with Jerry Ross and a selection of Adler and Ross songs from John Murray Anderson's Almanac, (sung by Cyril Ritchard and Elaine Dunn), and the 1955 original Broadway cast recording of Damn Yankees, with Gwenn Verdon, Stephen Douglass and Ray Walston.
