Every year I do a show around International Women’s Day in support of women artists.
I try really hard to make sure that they are well represented on my show(s).
I don’t really give it much thought, now, because it happens instinctively for me. But that’s because I have a daughter who made me acutely (no pun intended) aware of women artists because she ONLY wanted to listen to female artists when she was a child!
So, at that point, I DID consciously look for women artists to be represented when I made vacation or Christmas mixes. That was before my DJ days.
However, I am still shocked when I read older stories of how male radio programmers felt about playing women artists. And it sometimes rears its ugly head as recently as a few years ago with the “Bro Country” trend.
So, every year, I have an opportunity to focus on what women are trying to say that may be their own unique viewpoint, and/or try to celebrate the greatness that they bring to music in particular, and to the world in general!
So, Monday night’s “Prime Time Theme Attic” with Phil Maq will feature an opening two hour plus segment that-for all practical purposes is a two hour or so presentation of a 2020 Winter New Music Showcase, Pt.3!!!
It’s two hours or so, because Monday night’s show will be on from 8PM-12 Midnight EDT!!!
There will be mostly songs from brand new or unreleased tracks from albums, plus a couple of choice albums that are older, but fit the women’s theme.
From 8PM-10PM, songs by artists will include Kid Gulliver, Linda Hicks (Her album cover for “In the Corner” is third from the left in the banner.), Sarah Morris, fRiCTiON fARM, Ariane Lydon,(Her album cover for “Listen to Crows” is second from the right in the top row of the banner.), Tosha Owens Music (Tosha Owens), Claudia Nygaard, Linden Thoburn Lindenthoburnmusic (Her soon to be released album “Scarecrow” is in the bottom row on the right.) NÉRIJA, Diamonds in the Rust, soon to be released The Claudettes, (The album cover for “High Times in the Dark” is on the left in the banner.), Rochelle Clark, Hannah Baiardi, Liz E Brooks, (Her album cover for “My Own Magic” is second from the left in the banner.), Helene Cronin Music,, Lauren Crane,, Vicky Emerson (Her album for “Steady Heart” is fourth from the left in the banner.), Sigrid Christiansen, The Knickerbocker All-Stars, Nora Jane Struthers (Her album cover for “Bright Lights, Long Drives, First Words” is in the banner on the upper right), Nancy Wright, and a supporter of women’s rights-David Roof, and definitely more!!!
The second half of tonight’s “Prime Time Theme Attic” with Phil Maq from 10PM-Midnight EDT, will still have a focus on women artists, but will have a few male artists because I will be doing a “Top 9 at 10:09” for this week’s Fave Albums!
And even though you won’t be able to see it around Detroit, other areas of the country will still be able to see this month’s Super Worm Moon!
It looked beautiful last night and this morning! So that calls for some Moon Tunes!
Songs by artists on this part of the show will include Judy Banker, Cindy Ruenes Music, Amilia K Spicer, Michael on Fire, Nick Piunti & The Complicated Men, Bill Grogan’s Goat, Ed Dupas, Magic Music, John Ford Coley, Clark County Drifters, Erin Zindle & The Ragbirds, Karyn Oliver, Liz Bebee, May Erlewine, Jo Serrapere & the Willie Dunns, Mary Ann Kirt Music Page, Tracy Kash Music Page, Becki Digregorio, and maybe more!!!
