In case you don’t know, I host 1 hour of female rock Thursday nights 6pm pst / 9pm est on Women Rock Radio. Listen online here. The show (Jukebox Heroines) is gonna kick butt tonight! You’ll get to hear some new Heart, as well as, Kate Nash, Alicia Keys and tons more of the good stuff.
So, that concludes that shameless plug. Hurray.
As for some blog news:
I had almost 2,000 hits with my Lady Gaga Alejandro Music Video post! Awesome. That’s the most I have had on a post so far. Awesome!
I have also gotten a ton more music submissions….which I am slowly getting to. Sorry!
If anyone would like to guest post, I am all for that! It’s great to get more voices here on Jukebox Heroines. Just email me.
So, that’s it for now. Turn it up!

Leiana – Philly rocker who doesn’t take shit. We have a lot in common! PA produces a lot of in your face chic rockers…why? ‘Cause we don’t have much else to do beside be angry there…
Vote for your favorite female rock band: The Donnas, The Runaways, Indigo Girls or The Go-Gos. This poll is by Parade, and well, all I can say is that they are forgetting dozens of other women who rock, but then again, I don’t expect much from anything mainstream.
