This coming Sunday, the ladies in our standard rotation get their due. Joining, The British Are Coming; The Sixties Rotation playlists; the Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blues playlist will be our first all-female playlist called Ladies Day Out.
The playlist is just about six hours long, and features all The Mermaid Lounge favorites, as well as some new additions to the rotation.
Women still get short shrift in the rock music world. It took Linda Ronstadt until 2014 to be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame; Carole King is just being inducted this year. We consider that a travesty of musical justice considering the fact that rappers are already being inducted (and we don’t believe they even belong in a Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, frankly).
But here at #BecomeUngovernable Radio, we intend to elevate women to the level they’ve earned. Ladies Day Out is is another step in that process.
We will add the complete set list to the Playlist section of this blog before Sunday. We’ll let you know when it’s there.
