2016-11-11 Post-Election Recovery Music

Gina ChavezI take one week off from my show, and America elects Trump? Remind me not to disappear before an election again. In selecting my post-election songlist, I found myself drawn to global music by great women artists, some of whom are singing about women’s rights and social justice. Maybe that was just coincidence (hah!), but it made for a compelling, cathartic show.

2013-03-08 International Women’s Day

Mamy WataWe celebrate UN International Womens Day with music from women across the globe, from South Africa to France, Bulgaria to Palestine, and beyond. To some extent, I steered clear of the well-known names of world music, and tried to highlight some younger and less-well-know musicians. Hope you find things here to enjoy, and to prompt you to find out more about the artists. Women: Can’t live without ’em, wouldn’t want to.

I love to hear from listeners when I’m on the air, and when I’m not, I’d love to hear from you via the website or Facebook page, where you can also get your free Daily Spin:  http://facebook.com/spintheglobe
