Around 2002 I set up this section of my site, in order to help gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender artists know how to reach the radio shows that want their music. It contains contact info for email and for sending out those CDs. And the site may help listeners to learn what
GLBT programming is available. Please send additional radio show information, updates, and corrections, JD Doyle,
