DALLAS / FT WORTH / N TEXAS LIVE BLUES 3/27/14 THRU 4/2/14







I hope you have enjoyed the all Blueswomen version of Big Texas Blues I've brought you on KNON 89.3 FM this Month of March 2014 in honor of Women's History Month as much as I've enjoyed bringing it to you. Thanks to all of you who have called in and asked about songs that I played that you were hearing for the very first time, whether they were new releases by contemporary Blueswomen or gems from the classic Blueswomen of the 20's. Truth be told, the first commercially viable blues came from not the men, but the Bluewomen of the 1920's. They were the ones fronting and running the big money making shows. If Eric Clapton had been a woman (Erica Clapton?), and covered "Wild Women Don't Have The Blues" instead of "Crossroads" Ida Cox would be the legend Robert Johnson is thought of today. Makes you think. I hope it does anyhow. Don't ever stop thinking. And now, on with the blues....

DALLAS / FT WORTH / N TEXAS LIVE BLUES 3/6/14 THRU 3/12/14


 

 MARCH IS WOMEN'S HISTORY MONTH. 

 

MARCH 8TH IS INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY.

 

Equality for women is progress for all
"Countries with more gender equality have better economic growth. Companies with more women leaders perform better. Peace agreements that include women are more durable. Parliaments with more women enact more legislation on key social issues such as health, education, anti-discrimination and child support. The evidence is clear: equality for women means progress for all." 



International Women’s Day is a time to reflect on progress made, to call for change and to celebrate acts of courage and determination by ordinary women who have played an extraordinary role in the history of their countries and communities.


This year’s theme, “Equality for women is progress for all”  emphasizes how gender equality, empowerment of women, women’s full enjoyment of human rights and the eradication of poverty are essential to economic and social development. It also stresses the vital role of women as agents of  development.
