Generating Steam Heat radio show 02.06.15 (Rebel Girls Pt 1)



We have played so much great music by female artists that we decided to do a themed show dedicated solely to women in bands. Such was the amount of songs we wanted to include that we actually turned the idea into a two part show. 

Part 1 this week covers the original punk/post punk era and turned into our longest show yet with a playlist packed with classic songs. Part 2 next week covers contemporary bands and solo artists…
