Midsummer Catch-Up

I guess it doesn't seem like anything much is happening on the Odd Girl Out front, as I haven't posted any new shows or podcasts for some months. I am just starting to write my dissertation, so am unlikely to do any new shows for awhile.

But, I have not been idle. I regularly post old shows to Mixcloud, and they link to playlists on here, so you should still have a "new" show from me every week. Do check them out!

Plans for the summer

Alas, there has been another long gap in my posts, but I am pleased to say that things are moving, and I am hoping to be back on-air soonish, with an exciting web-based project.

In the meantime I have posted OR11, which includes an array of delights from Vienna.

Hope things are warming up where you are.
