March is Women’s History Month and WSGE is proud to bring to you a countdown of the thirty-one top female singers in Rock and Roll. The countdown will be aired on Friday, March 29th from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. The criteria used to select these artists include impact and influence (commercial, musical and cultural), lasting popularity and talent. All genres of rock and roll were considered. In addition, input was gathered from music trade magazines and staff recommendations.
To ascertain feedback from our listeners there will be a post on the station’s Facebook page on Friday, March 1st that will allow you to name your favorite female Rock and Roll artist and tell why she should be included on the countdown. Two winners will be randomly selected from the respondents and awarded a pair of tickets to see Citizen Cope (pictured below) in concert on Tuesday, March 4th at the Fillmore in Charlotte, NC. The winners will be announced on Monday, March 3rd.
Starting Saturday, March 9th from 9 p.m. to midnight hop aboard The Soul Music Express with Santoria Harris. This new show will feature classic R&B hits from the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s and 90’s. To board the Express, simply give her a call at 704-922-4286 to have your request played. She’ll also include in her mix some fantastic female female artists that you know and love!
