Celebrating the female of the species…Wed 9th March

Hello!

Really loved doing the show this week – chatting to BCB’s finest female DJs and playing some of their favourite songstresses. We celebrated International Women’s Day on The BCB Sessions – only broadcasting the voices of the fairer sex. It’s almost impossible condensing everything I’d like to play into an hour but here’s what made the mix:

Broadcast – Still Feels Like Tears
Gossip – Listen Up (live in Liverpool version)
Garbage – Only Happy When It Rains (Selected by Alissa Juvan, one half of BCB’s Fabric show)
Lush – Single Girl (back to 1996….)
Kaito – Should I (Chosen by Katie Jennings, one half of BCB’s DIY or Die show)
Anna Calvi – Blackout (atmospheric, immense…brilliant)
Blue Roses – Does Anyone Love Me (Acoustic BCB Session – shiny and gorgeous!)
Roisin Murphy – Ruby Blue (Selected by Sally Cooper, blogger, presenter/producer of many a BCB show)
Bat For Lashes – Horse and I (another one of mine…takes me right back to sitting on the carpet at the Brudenell Social Club being mesmerised along with many other people by N Khan in tight white jeans).
Nina Simone – Feeling Good (Chosen by Emma Adams, one half of BCB’s Buffet duo..we’re feeling good)
Peaches – Downtown (it was either this or suck on my ***** !@%&)
MIA – It Takes A Muscle (Had to play MIA…she’s ace)

Of course I’ve missed out loads of great female artists so I’d like to do it all over again with the women I missed  - who should be in the mix next time? Suggestions please….Joan as Policewoman, Cat Power?? Your thoughts please. You don’t have to be a lady to contribute. Thank the lord.

If you missed the show you can listen again….hopefully this link will take you to it

but if it doesn’t work then go to http://www.podcast.canstream.co.uk/bcb/ and it’s listed under our specialist music heading – look for The BCB Sessions and then the date, i.e. 9th March, 2nd March.

Now then, I got myself in a pickle the other day and lost my playlist but there’s good news, it’s re-surfaced. I’m so happy. Here’s a choice selection of the tracks I played on last week’s show (2nd March):

The Leisure Society – This Phantom Life
Austra – Beat And The Pulse
Modified Toy Orchestra – Fanfare For The Common Man
Interview with Duane Simon followed by session track, My Love Is Your Love (recorded at BCB Towers)
James Yuill – Crying for Hollywood (radio edit)
Caitlin Rose – Own Side Now
The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart – I Wanna Go All The Way
Papercuts – Do What You Will
Live chat with Pat Fulgoni (Timeless Music Project and Kava Kava) about Yorks and NE bands heading to SXSW.
David Thomas Broughton – Perfect Louse
Phew! We’re all sorted. Don’t forget if you’d like to come in and do a session or you’ve got some music you’d like me to play on air then email me: laura.rawlings@bcbradio.co.uk

I’m back next Wednesday night at 9pm with a session from Joe Tilston!

Until then,

    Good stuff Laura. Cat Power definitely next year, maybe also Dusty Springfield and PJ Harvey. According to a recent poll, you might want to consider, erm, Leonna Lewis too…hmmm, pity Emmeline Pankhurst never made any records.

    I don’t know if you’ve thought ahead, but because next year is a leap year, IWD will literally leapfrog Wednesday and be on Thursday.
