Celebrating the female of the species…Wed 9th March


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
