We are slowly migrating our audio cassette-based collections to digital files and we thought we’d share some of the fruits of our labour here.
The Women’s Radio Workshop programme ‘Women and Music’ provides a rare and unique insight into women’s liberation music making.
The programme features ‘seven women who play and write music’ including Rosemary Schonfeld, Jana Runnalls (Ova), Andrea Webb, Janie Webb, Judya Manthis (sp?), Lawrie Strike, Louise Marsden, Rosie Fisher and Sarah Gillam.
For more background on music making and the WLM visit the online Women’s Liberation Music Archive, in particular read the introduction to the Sisters in Song book. The physical WLMA has been deposited in the FAS and is in the process of being catalogued – check back soon for updates on this!
For now, enjoy!
