Introducing The Showtune Countdown

Every radio station needs a countdown show, and every Broadway fan loves to talk about their favorite musicals. Put those ideas together, and you get The Showtune Countdown, a new podcast created in partnership between AKA and iHeartRadio Broadway.

In each episode, host Mark Blankenship (who is AKA’s Director of Integrated Content) reveals the most essential songs in a whimsical musical theater category. From the all-time best opening numbers to tunes that make you tear up, the Countdown celebrates them all with essential facts, insights, and conversation. Plus, everyone can play along: Mark is joined by a different Broadway celebrity for every episode, and the audience can vote via social media on which songs make the countdown.

New episodes premiere every Wednesday, so tune in to hear if your favorites get played.
