Coming up this week on Odd Girl Out show 39

This week marks my 20 years investigating women's culture. (Not something the guidance counsellor recommended, by the way.)

To celebrate, I am rooting around in the archive, and so you can expect some vintage selections, plus a new interview with NZ one-woman band Bachelorette. And loadsa tunes.

As usual, Odd Girl Out airs Thursdays @ 19:00 BST, with a repeat on Sunday @ 13:00 BST on Optical Radio.

Odd Girl Out: show 38

Back on air after a two-week absence to find a newly painted cafe and a party being set up to celebrate the end of summer. But, not for us hard-working presenters. This show featured two compilations, Fields and Streams and Freedom of Choice, plus an unusual number of trumpet solos. Good to be back.
