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

Le menu – Wed 28th Feb

Hello you,

Ok, have you seen the bit of paper I wrote the track listings on for last week’s show? It’s A4, white with scrawl on it, probably a bit crumpled by now?Are you hiding it? Help! I’ve looked everywhere AND unpacked every banana box in the flippin living room and it’s just not there. So, I start this post with an apology for bad filing and a promise that I’ll try really hard next week. On the upside, it’s better to listen to the show so put this addy in the bar at the top if you missed it…http://www.podcast.canstream.co.uk/bcb/index.php?page=16

and scroll down to click on The BCB Sessions

We’re sending out a big BCB Sessions bon chance to all the bands heading off to SXSW and playing at the Yorks & NE SXSW 2011 Showcase on Sat 19th. Thanks Pat (Timeless Music Project) for coming on the show and making us all jealous! Thanks also to Duane Simon – featured artist of the week…I had your track going round in my head for ages, a proper ear worm.

Now then onwards to this week’s show (Wed 9th March) and we’re doing a full on nod to International Women’s Day with female DJ’s from across BCB’s specialist music schedule and friends of the show talking about their favourite female artists and playing some of their songs. The show’s live from 9pm on 106.6fm and online at www.bcbradio.co.uk If you miss it then you can listen again by clicking on the pink highlights box on the BCB homepage. If there’s a particular female fronted band or artist you’d like to hear then get in touch: laura.rawlings@bcbradio.co.uk and we’ll put a quid in the BCB jukebox and see what happens.

Until Wed at 9,
