This month's show will feature all women artists!

Join me for my March edition of Swing 'n Country where I will be highlighting the music of some lesser-know pioneering women in western swing and country music to celebrate Women's History Month. I did this last year and it was fun! This time, I will focus on singers and instrumentalists who might have been household names in their day but are less well-known now, still deserving of some of the limelight along with their more famous peers, predecessors and those for whom they might have paved the way or influenced in some way. I'll also feature some fine female yodelers, a set of sister/family acts and even an all-girl western swing band!
