Queer Music Heritage -- Gay Radio, Lesbian Radio, Transgender Radio

Click Number on the Dial for That Year's Shows
From January 2000 until March 2015 "Queer Music Heritage" was both a radio show and a website, and the goal of both was to preserve and share the music of our culture. It has become the resource on the net for the history of LGBT music. Each month's page gives the playlist and additional pages of info, and you can stream or download every show; there's over 580 hours of programming available.  The March QMH is a special four-hour romp with Camp Music. Thanks for your support over the years.  Also visit www.JDDoyleArchives.org    You can hear my last QMH show Here, and last OutRadio Here.

  A note about the search engine: it is set to simultaneously search all three of my major sites; this one, along with Houston LGBT History and Texas Obituary Project, and also The Banner Project site.

News! The JD Doyle Archives has been approved by the IRS for 501c3 non-profit status,
so all donations are tax deductible. If you enjoy my site, please consider a small donation.
The site has a huge amount of sound files and graphics, and well, it's an expensive site,
requiring a large dedicated server.. If you're moved to help share
and preserve our culture's history I'd be very appreciative! - JD Doyle


New Pages on QMH:
While no new shows are being added, I sometimes add new graphics to a section, or new information to sections
(like Gay Musicals) and even less often add an entirely new page, like these...

Les Poe, very obscure 1930's artist, similar to Dwight Fiske
Arthur Bressan Jr, The Gay Music in His Films
Jackie Shane's New CD
Voices for Life, Celebrating Houston AIDS Charities
Charlie & Ray Late 50s Out R&B Duo
Gay & Proud LP, 1970


What else is special on QMH?


Above left, I've acquired a scrapbook from 1949, from Edinburgh, Scotland,
that tells of the 30-year love of Angus Fitzroy for Toby McCutcheon,
with photos, drawings and postage stamps to mark their world travels

Have you thought of downloading my shows, perhaps for your iPod? It's tricky if like me you use Firefox,
so I temporarily open up Internet Explorer and paste in the show's URL. Then Right Click on the Download
button...that's always the lower half of my Listen buttons. Get the dropdown menu, and select "save target as"
....that should open up a box asking where on your computer you want to save the file. Once saved you
can move to iPod, MP3 player, etc.

Perhaps the coolest compliment I've gotten, from Gretchen's Press Page:

image grab from her site, her idea...:)

And, this listener paid Such a compliment to what I do, and what the artists do,
that I had to share it. I marvel at how well he summed it all up in just a few words.

and, above, presented to me by Tret Fure, Thanks!

Two books about queer music came out in 2017, which you may want to check out.
I think both are good, and both have their pros and cons.
