My apologies for my negligence to this blog! Recently, my friends commented on my lack of updates and I felt compelled to attempt to fix up my lofty endeavor, and rearrange the entire structure of this sonic archive! I have been changing all the links on the blog to mediafire, so that they can be downloaded and they look better. I am almost done, but the uploading process is somewhat annoying.

Anyway, the links for all the past shows will be in mediafire form. They, unfortunately, may be split in half, since some of the three hour shows will not upload in a single mp3 form! I will be adding new shows and fixing the old ones already posted. I am hoping to have this done soon.

In addition, the recent shows have been great, and have led me down such interesting paths. I feel as though the recent research I have been doing has expanded my understanding of the concept of genre and the female voice! For instance, I did a show on the female voice--a particularly interesting, complicated, and problematic musical medium, which calls attention to the historical complications of what it meant to use your voice as a female (and here I am thinking of cases of rape, incest, abuse, etc), when your voice was heard, by whom, and who literally had access to their voices. Another show, perhaps my favorite to date, showcased METAL MAIDENS/MAMAS growling and shredding their way to the heaviest parts of my heart. I was lucky enough to have metal maiden and grrrl queen extraordinaire Lindsay Powell (she plays music, Fielded and Ga'an both utterly amazing and wonderful!) as my co-host. That show will be up soon, along with the others!

In the meantime, here is, Somebody Groovy, the best song by the Mamas and the Papas live at Monterey. They really seem to be the highest people alive.
