This audio documentary is in progress. I am missing an early lesbian host in 1978 who's name no one remembers at this time. If anyone knows her, please contact me. I still have other hosts to interview, as well as guests and listeners. The piece will also include narration and archival audio.

Also I am looking to interview Fresh Fruit listeners who want to contribute their experiences of listening to Fresh Fruit over the years.

If you want to contribute, please email Dixie at

All feedback and memories welcome.
