About the Women is perhaps the longest-running women's music radio
show in the United States, if not the world. On the air since 1975,
this collectively-run show features music by women artists spanning
all genres, from folk and rock to jazz and world music. The show airs
on the Tufts University radio station, WMFO 91.5 FM in Medford, Massachusetts
on Saturdays from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. The show is also streamed
live on the Internet at www.wmfo.org.
is currently produced on a volunteer basis by a collective
of seven women from the Boston area: Laura Burgess, Sue Edelman,
Jane Powers, Amanda Schreckengaust, Laurie Young, Lynsey Moon and Joann Keesey. The collective
members take turns hosting the show, so each week you will hear another
voice and get a different musical perspective from one of DJs.
