Show #226 – International Women’s Day

March 8th is International Women’s Day There is an International Men’s Day, too – November 19th is the day. As our show is on Thursday (every other, opposite “Shorty’s Bunkhouse”) and this Thursday was International Women’s Day, a theme emerged. I mean a theme emerged at 6:28pm for a 6:30pm show start time. We began to pull CDs from our collection where women were the primary performer. We then pulled more CDs from the KWMR library, and even took one request.

With the exception of not including Buck Owens (sort of a rule for each show), we did include Merle Haggard singing with Bonnie Owens, and Dave Alvin with his Guilty Women, the the Knitters made the list, featuring Exene Cervenka, along with John Doe. We always start things off with Tim Hus.

We hope you enjoyed the show. Here is a link to the archive, which will be active for 14 days.  If you missed it, you can still enjoy it. Playlist is below.

Have a damned nice day!
