Welcome to an unusual show! The criteria was that an artist's recording could ONLY have been released on cassette tape, not on vinyl or CD, or later reissued on CD. So this puts us mostly in the 80s and 90s, with the releases of independent artists, most of which never had a prayer of getting played on the radio. I'm sharing some real gems of lesbian music. And this is the second show I've done on this premis...hence I got Barbara Gittings (in Philadelphia in 1965) to hold up the appropriate placard. If this show doesn't wear you out, check out Part 1, November 2008.

Okay, I strayed from my "lesbians on cassette" theme for this
one track, but when else could I EVER play together two songs
about Ballot Measure #9?

Destiny - Softball on Belmont Plateau (1992)

Please see my October 2001
Show for more on Destiny


Since the information on these tapes is so historic and hard to find, I've
scanned the entire cassette liners -- Click the tape above for those pages.
This often includes complete lyrics, and for some additional photos.


Many of recordings heard on QMH can be purchased at
Goldenrod Music. Please click on the photo to visit their site.
