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!
My fourth podcast for East London Radio is a report from last week's
launch of the 28th edition of what has been BFI London Lesbian and Gay
Film Festival, now entering its next [spoiler alert!] chapter.
The podcast features contributions from: Bev Zalcock, Clare Stewart, Selina Robertson, Roz Kaveney, Muffin Hix, Christa Holka, Naz Jamal, Brian Robinson, and a cameo from Lisa Gornick.
In this third Odd Girl Out podcast for East London Radio, Val Phoenix meets musician Kristin Hersh to discuss the new Throwing Muses release, Purgatory / Paradise, a combination book/CD, excerpts of which soundtrack this show. The live clips and readings come from Kristin's appearance at Big Green Books, London in October, 2013.
Artist Erica Scourti speaks about her life in Hackney Wick in an interview recorded in June 2013. In addition to excerpts from her work, the programme also contains artists and tracks suggested by Erica. This is the first Odd Girl Out podcast for East London Radio.
So, I am very excited to be part of the programming for a brand new station launching in the autumn. East London Radio will be available on the web, and Odd Girl Out will be a fixture of the evening schedule. Stay tuned for details...
In the meantime, to keep you occupied, I have posted two more shows: OR12 and OR13. More to come!
