WNBC Takeover @ The Bechdel Weekender – March 8th – 11th 2019
The Bechdel Crew were lucky enough to take over the WNBC airwaves for the duration of the Bechdel Weekender, and we invited some very special guests with us along for the ride. Check out the mixcloud links below to listen again to the shows from the weekend. We’ve also got more shows from the weekender including Alex Paterson (from the Orb) & Sisters of Reggae!
We were delighted to have our local MP Helen Hayes come to Book & Record Bar to play her female-fronted tracks and tell us the reasons why the songs are special to her. Hope you enjoy!
Ellen took over the airwaves with an hour of 90’s anthems! Expect some Brit-pop and Girl Power but mostly Trip-hop, 90s R&B, Rom-Com soundtracks, One Hit wonders, the Dawson’s Creek theme song and more
Jessie from sketch comedy group Spoon the Prune, took over the airwaves and represented the team by spinning some serious soul from the likes of Ella Fitzgerald, Erykah Badu & Aretha Franklin.
A bit about Spoon the Prune:
Spoon the Prune is a brand new, comedy web series! We are a group of 95% female and 50% queer filmmakers ready to shake up the world of sketch comedy. Harking back to those classic shows from the 90s, but with our own unique twist. Ever heard of a wayward arm? Need any more reasons to avoid fancy dress parties? Wondering what it actually means for a woman to win an Oscar? Then this is the show for you…
Bechdel Founder Lisa recorded this show on the Sat after a sold-out launch party the night before, so don’t expect high-quality chats, however, we can guarantee you some banging tunes! The show has no particular theme but includes some of her favourites from today (Self Esteem, Tirzah, Snail Mail & Empress Of), some brit pop classics from Garbage & Sleeper and some eighties new wave indie/punk from The Flatmates, Girls at Our Best & The Raincoats. Enjoy!
The first Bechdel Mixtape from Italian DJ Serena Di featuring Grimes, Sophie, Julia Holter & More!
Ellen featured on Hot Salvation Radio Show in Jan 2019 – A lovely chilled out mix of Low, Laurie Spiegel & Mary Lattimore. Perfect Sunday afternoon listening!
