Today we honor the Queens of Rock and Roll.  The supreme Queen, Tina Turner, passed this week and we pay tribute to her.

We also will be launching the world premiere of Glistening by Grace DeVine . Known for their evocative lyricism, Grace with ethereal vocals, combines their artistic prowess with a message of inclusivity and self-acceptance. “Dont gotta be a woman, don’t gotta be a man. We just gotta keep glistening.” They sing. The song invites listeners on a transformative journey as it encapsulates the essence of Pride. 

We also celebrate the true women pioneers of Rock and Roll, the original Queens... a group known as FANNY. Their story is the subject of a new documentary just launced on PBS called FANNY: The Right to Rock. As the first all-female rock act to record an album for a major record label, FANNY was the first all-female rock act to rise to real prominence in the US and Europe. 

Our focus guest is film maker Bobbie Jo Hart. She is an award winning American/ Canadian documentary filmmaker with Adobe Productions International, based in Montreal, Canada. With a career that has spanned 25 years,on subjects ranging from women’s professional soccer and tennis to classical music, comedy, dance and manic depression. Her documentary films have the most common thread of revealing untold stories of marginalized girls and women, weaving universal threads of dreams, family, love, loss, happiness, sadness, success, failure and determination. Her intimate, cinema verité style results in thought- provoking films that ultimately celebrate our shared humanity.

With co-host Brody Levesque
