Mixtape: A Pride Mix


Two hours of music from LGBTQ artists (mainly LG, actually), from multiple genres and styles, ranging from back to the '60s to right now. That's what we have here. Researching this mix introduced me to talents I'd never heard before: Smokey, Peter Straker, Jen Cloher. It's also the third time this year that I've featured something by John Howard, my favorite back-story discovery of the last couple of years. This effort also satisfies my heretofore unissued challenge of finding a way to put Team Dresch and Barry Manilow on the same mixtape. Have a good month and enjoy.
