Every so many months I do a show devoted to women artists I like. I have been doing this since I started doing radio in 1986. The reasons are many and varied from I felt like it to this concentration being a kind of audio-erotic device especially in the periods when my beloved was elsewhere in the world for instance. OTHER REASONS have more to do with the politics of macho and sexism and also the conundrums of gender divisions of labor. For the most part women are relegated to the glorious surfaces of many music endeavors. Women are the face, the voice, the lead singers, the flamboyant one, the seductive one. This can have its advantages for sure... Artwork by Paloma Jet.
