The Wilton Way Café Jubilee Special: 1960s
The Wilton Way Café and London Fields Radio present a special series of podcasts from 1902 to 2012 to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee ahead of their free street party on Sunday June 3.
Presenters on Hackney's micro radio station count down the eras, from the 1900s to 2000s, commemorating the best (and worst) of the decade with music, commentary and LFR's distinct DIY flavour.
In this episode, LFR's riot grrrl siblings, Sisters of Mirthy, take you on a feminist tour of the sixties, where second wave girls were fighting dirty. It started with the SCUM manifesto, written by certifiable feminist Valerie Solanas in '67, who called on all women to overthrow their captors, and ended in 1969, which was "the year of the militant woman".
>> NB: You will need to turn this podcast down at the start and up after 10 seconds. Sorry!<<
