Recently NBC’s Think newsletter featured a report from a radio consultant which encouraged corporate program directors to limit the number of songs by women in their playlists to make ratings.

From “Think”: “This type of story — of the limited space for women — is all too common in country music. For years, women have been told that there is only one spot for women on playlists and label rosters, that they should avoid releasing ballads, that their music isn’t good enough and that their songs cannot be played back-to-back.”

KDRT 95.7FM is grassroots community radio and as hosts of our radio programs aren’t beholden to corporate radio interests, in other words we have the freedom to play whatever the “H” we want.. Tomorrow (Tuesday at 11:00 to Noon) on High Country Music Radio Rusty will feature several of the great female bluegrass and country artists. Played "back-to-back" we'll listen to timeless music from Laurie Lewis, Rita Hosking, Kora Feder , Hazel Dickins, Tift Merritt, Patty Griffin and many others.
