(Pictured: New York City’s Main Squeeze Orchestra.)

Still tied up in tangles and knots getting our workflow figured out and working around other projects and special events such as TONIGHT’S COMMUNITY CONCERT AT SPARTACUS BOOKS CELEBRATING THE 10TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE VANCOUVER SQUEEZEBOX CIRCLE (phew, it’s always a struggle to subtly sneak those plugs in but I think I managed), we’re a bit behind on posting recordings from our current and back catalogue… fortunately, we have many opportunities to get caught up.

Here’s one from the vaults, episode number 14 from way back in 2007, celebrating International Women’s Day ten years ago!  There’s a whole cohort of people who were girls then who are now women also!  At its original home this episode racked up a massive number of listens — 19313 by some counts! — and we hope that it proves to also have legs at its new forever home over at the Internet Archive.  Enjoy!
