This weekend you can enjoy a pops concert that's like a bouquet of different Broadway hits. You can take a musical tour of the dark side of the moon. Then you can experience violin and piano in a cave, with bats overhead. The Weekend is here, and there’s plenty to do.

A Broadway hit musical finds its way to the Majestic Theatre. Two of its principle players, Ben Fankhauser and Erika Olson, who play the songwriting team Mann and Weil, offered some insight into the show. 

"This is the point in our music history where all the pop music was written in office buildings by a small group of composers. There was a lot of competition because this was before the singer/songwriter era," says Fankhauser.

The Wizard of Oz is one of the most iconic stories of American popular culture. Created originally in novel form,  in 1939 a Judy Garland film was produced, and then in 2011 Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice adapted it for the stage.

It's a big weekend with outstanding weather predicted. I've found that great music, free trees,  and Kinky Boots are on the horizon. First off, starting tonight, music from some of the biggest black entertainers of the recent past. The Carver Cultural Center's Teresa Vasquez-Romero:

"Etta James, Sarah Vaughn and Dinah Washington."

David Letterman returned to comedy at a Friday show in San Antonio, saying that retiring from Late Night before Donald Trump announced his presidential run was "the biggest mistake of my life."

He offered a brand-new Top Ten list, aimed directly at the Donald. Shots taken included:

If you’re looking to take a trip back in time, this weekend there’s a very good opportunity for you.  A Beatles tribute band is coming to San Antonio.

"This is Jim Irizarry.”

Jim plays and sings the role of John Lennon in the Beatles Tribute Band Rain. He describes what people who come will see.

“You’re going to see us go through all the different Beatle eras. We’re going to start with the Ed Sullivan Show, 1964.”
