Minna subbed for Doug, spinning 2 full hours of female artists in celebration of Women’s History Month and International Women’s Day (March 8). The first hour included everything from a young Filipino-American hip hop artist to Russian disco pop to club mbalax. In the second hour, we dipped into some 1960s East Asian psych rock, bhangra bass, pop music from the DRC, and more!
