Good Morning, Ungovernables! We’ve been streaming for days now trying to fix a glitch we have without interrupting service. We may have lost that battle. Not quite sure yet. But for today, we’re going to enjoy some tunes from the those we consider the pioneers and powerhouses of women in music.
10:00 a.m. The All-Girl Revue, File 1: Various Artists
3:00 p.m. The All-Girl Revue Too (also known as File 2): Various Artists
Both of these playlists offer a great line-up of women musicians across a broad range of styles.
8:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Linda Ronstadt
This month, we pay respect to one of the most fearless artists of her generation with the release of the documentary, The Sound of My Voice. If she were a man, she never would have been made to wait for her induction into the Rock n’Roll Hall of Fame until 2012.
11:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Laura Nyro
Laura Nyro is another of those under appreciated performers. Her songwriting is legendary. Many have hit the big time with her songs, like The Fifth Dimension. Sometimes Nyro’s singing is overlooked, and that is a shame. We aim to correct that here.
Will it be a Ladies Only Weekend? It could be. I’m feelin’ it right now. Stick around and find out!
And by the way, in between these playlists we have our usual inclusive line up.

1:00 p.m. Alison Weir: The Global Campaign to Stifle Criticism of Israel
There is indeed a global campaign afoot, and it’s absurd that we the people are being told we cannot criticize the terrorist state of Israel. All governments are subject to criticism.
