100% Women


This week on The Sweet and Sour Variety Hour, my response to a challenge to #bookmorewomen by fellow CHLY programmer @biggerthanbass . Thus, here is a whole show of womxn’s voices only. Bonus points because they’re all (pretty much) local.

In the early morning light of March 11th, 2020, every living thing in this particular part of the world will have no choice but to be awash in the musical selections I have chosen via the terrestrial radio wave emissions of CHLY 101.7FM!!!!!!1 MuAHAHAHa
