Live tomorrow, Wednesday, August 31 at 8:00pm, I, Calypso Sally, will be spinning some dope tunes on Washington Heights Free Radio (WHFR) Broad Strokes. It’s gonna be a boombastic-tellyuh-fantastic night, since I’ll be flooding WHFR’s stream with the freshest hip-hop tracks, showcasing women rappers (even when they’re not categorized as such). I think they’re real, and have the ovaries to play by their own rules. As scandalous as it will get, they have a message of not being afraid to take on the status-quo in their own ways of expressing, class conscious, feminist, genderqueer aesthetics…
Anywhoo, for those of you that don’t know, I have a radio show called Broad Strokes, and it streams live off the web every last Wednesday of the month. My dj name is Calypso Sally, but I don’t just play Kaiso, lol.
I try to play a broad range of genres, stretching from indie rock, pop, alternative, noise rock, hip hop, reggae, dance hall, metal, calypso, funk etc. It’s sort of a mixed bag. I also have live acoustic performances.
Check out the live in studio session of Holy Moly! this past June, HERE.
These guys are mad talented, and really down to earth folks. Their tunes make me want to stomp my feet and drink some gin, and as you will discover from the broadcast, I don’t like gin, hee, hee. I can’t wait for their record to drop!
Bringing you stories, live events, and much more, WHFR tries and remains independent of any corporate sponsorship. So, if you like what WHFR is doing, you can donate by contacting them at firstname.lastname@example.org. DIY forever baby!
