Lise Avery began broadcasting her show, Anything Goes!!, from WFDU-FM in 1998, which features a fun, unpredictable mix of standards, jazz & classic pop with a bit of almost anything else. You’ll also hear classic comedy to cartoon theme songs and old, rare gems from classic artists.
Since Lise went on the air with Anything Goes!!, she has had the privilege of interviewing some remarkable people. And, because of the eclectic nature of Anything Goes!!, those guests have ranged from Sir James Galway to Davy Jones of the Monkees to songwriters Jimmy Webb and Mike Stoller and song and dance legend Tommy Tune.
Outside of the station, Lise is an accomplished singer and actress. She has performed in nightclubs, musicals and cabarets throughout the NY metro area and is currently working on a new album with the remarkable pianist Russ Kassoff. She is an avid scuba diver, animal lover and environmentalist and she loves hunting for treasures at flea markets and garage sales. Whenever she can she spends time at her cottage in rural Ontario, Canada with mismatched clothing and unruly hair.
Lise has a special way of turning a phrase or playing the tune that is sure to touch you, make you smile or stir a memory – it’s like listening to your favorite music with an old friend. You never know what to expect when you tune into Anything Goes!! But you can always expect great music, good fun and a good feeling.
