Sweet!

If you can catch the Wednesday, April 13th show of Oprah, I highly recommend it! This show is about “Rock Goddesses of the ’70s and ’80s” featuring Sister Sledge, Stevie Nicks, Joan Jett, Pat Benatar, Salt n Pepa, Sheryl Crow, plus newbies like Miley Cyrus and Avril Lavigne.  Check out Oprah’s show page here for more information.

I Can’t Stand The Rain


Looking for some blue, mellow tunes for those rainy, spring days? I know I am here in Seattle! And while you may think this chic mix play-list should be about sunshine and beaches, I think songs about rain are so much more. They are really about our inner thoughts and desires, and the rain, coldness, unease, and uncertainty of it all are symbolized by it slowly dancing on the window pane. So, from my October 7 Women Rock Radio show, I present to you this play-list…Rain Edition.

  1. Can’t Stand The Rain – Tina Turner
  2. Lay Down (Candles In The Rain) – Meredith Brooks
  3. Cue The Rain – Queen Latifah
  4. Everytime It Rains – Ace of Base
  5. Rainy Days And Mondays – The Carpenters
  6. Let It Rain – Jennifer Page
  7. Walking In The Rain – Grace Jones
  8. Thank Goodness For The Rain – Peanut
  9. Come Rain Or Come Shine – Peggy Lee
  10. It Might As Well Rain Until September – Carole King
  11. Rain – Madonna
  12. Don’t Let The Rain – La Bouche
  13. Run Between The Raindrops – Pat Benatar
  14. Let The Rain – Sara Barielles
  15. I’m Only Happy When It Rains – Garbage

Rock & Roll Memoirs


It’s yucky outside. Many of us are stuck indoors (or prefer it over going out in the chilly temperatures and/or rain here in Seattle.) It’s why we have so many book stores and coffee houses! Warmth and liquid motivation. So what better way to pass the time than to read about some of your favorite rockers!

There have been quite a few new memoirs released by my favorite Jukebox Heroines. Here are the latest, plus three re-releases with extra material.

Pat Benatar – Between A Heart & A Rock Place

Belinda Carlisle – Lips Unsealed: A Memoir

Cherry Vanilla – Lick Me: How I Became Chery Vanilla

Cherie Currie – Neon Angel: A Memoir Of A Runaway

Tina Turner – I, Tina: My Life’s Story

Loretta Lynn – Loretta Lynn: Coal Miner’s Daughter

Xylos, Emma Hill, The Lindbergh Line + Clara Engel


Electro-Pop band Xylos, is releasing their debut album April 5, 2011. Preview the track “Not Enough” here.
Emma Hill – Folk Roots and Americana. Emma has a new album called “Meet me at the Moon”, out now. Homey vocals with heart.
Montreal dirty-pop band, The Lindbergh Line. Remember all the sneers and strutting of Pat Benatar, Tina Turner, and Cherie Currie? Remember when rock was cool? Well, that’s the kind of rock ethos you’ll get with The Lindbergh Line. Check out their EP “Bang Bang You’ll Be Missed.”
Clara Engel is a prolific Toronto singer-songwriter with a focus on Avant Garde and Experimental. In the studio since she was 21, she has released 7 albums to date. Download her latest live album as well as her others here.
