International Women’s Day 2017

For IWD 2017 Radio Free D’ni presented a four-hour show of music by female artists, presented by Root Beer with AlanDJ, Malaclypse and Edison Rex.  Hummingbird was with us on the plaza, and delivered some reminders of what the day was about, and biographical details of significant women, some famous and others not so.  In addition, Ghaelen D’Lareh (who could not be with us due to other commitments) contributed a spoken piece about Mary Woolstonecroft and Mary Shelley.

We had over 35 listeners for the majority of the show, with a peak of 43 – Do join us again 🙂
