Feminist Radio Show 1st Friday Of Every Month

What: Monthly feminist online radio show

When: 10pm EST (United States)

Where: Online (Lucky Star Radio.com)

We caught up with Elysa who manages the Grrrl Power Hour on Lucky Star Radio. This online, feminist radio show has an ongoing open call for submissions from feminist and queer bands, musicians and artists.

Elysa has managed and produced the show since 2014 out of New York City although the Lucky Star Radio station is based out of California. We asked Elysa a few questions about how it all started for her and what she hopes to achieve with the show?

“One of the heads of the radio station and I have been friends since I was a teenager and when he started the station he asked if I’d want to have a spot once a month, and I had never done anything like it before but I had always been involved in music throughout my teens and 20s and I had the idea for what I wanted the show to be, so I thought it would be a great thing to try out, and I’ve been doing it monthly ever since.

The purpose of the show is to provide a platform for current, primarily independent, feminist and queer-identified musicians to get their music out there. The radio show airs through the internet, so anyone can access it. I try to play as many different songs and artists as I can each month and just do the little bit I can to give a signal boost to the bands that out there making really great music all over the world right now when a lot of other platforms still may not recognize them as frequently as they should. So by airing them on the show, plus sharing links to their music and promoting live shows and releases through the show’s social media I really hope to get a few extra people listening to their music.”

Any highlights from running the show you’d like to share with us?

“The coolest thing I’ve seen happen because of the show are different bands connecting with each other. Many of the musicians that I play on the show also listen to the show, and because of that some bands that are local to each other, or even others who aren’t as local, have connected and become fans of each other. There was a band from Texas that was coming to play in NYC and because of Grrrl Power Hour they knew of a few NYC bands they really wanted to play the show with them…I’ve heard a few stories like that of bands connecting to each other because of the show and it has been really amazing to witness and help build the community a bit.”

Submissions can be sent to GrrrlPowerHour@gmail.com.

Annabel Gutherz has just released her first single and if it is any indication of what is to come she may have a great career ahead of herself.

At only 19 years of age, Annabel has decided to use her voice and be a part of the change. According to recent interviews she found inspiration in the young survivors of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School attack and how they dealt with the tragic event.

Furthermore, all of the profits of her debut single, titled ‘Legends’, will go to the WE organization. You can listen to the song below as well as on several other streaming services.


Montaigne uses her voice to protest a multinational conglomerate

Montaigne is only 23 years old but already she has achieved raising her mind to a level of becoming vegan and using her powerful voice responsibly to protest destructive corporations and multinational conglomerates. And as if that was not enough to ask of a young woman then she has also released a music album that reached nr. 4 on the Australian charts.

 

When interviewed at the 2018 ARIA Awards she said that she has become aware of her platform that she has through her music which she uses to talk about what matters to her and what she finds important that everyone gets more aware of.
