    Lynn Castle & The Ladies Of LITA

    This episode we highlight a few women who are doing awesome things in the music world. In the first half we talk to our favorite songstress, Lynn Castle. Lynn, who was known as Los Angeles' first "Lady Barber," recorded her beautiful songs back in the 60s with the help of Jack Nitzsche and Lee Hazlewood, but they've lain dormant ever since.. until now!

    In the second half we eavesdrop on a conversation between two experimental female musicians, Suzanne Doucet and Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith.

    We also read some user-submitted tales of what's it's like to be a woman in the male-dominated music world.

    The Tumbleweed Records Story

    This is the story of the little record label that could... until it couldn't. From 1971-1973 Tumbleweed Records put out an eclectic range of music from a wild family of musicians, many of whom were local to Denver, Colorado. Over the past few decades, crate diggers have stumbled upon Tumbleweed's records in dollar bins around the country, unaware of the short-lived, glittering empire behind them.

    Spooner Oldham

    You may not know his name, but you know his music. Spooner Oldham is a linchpin of southern soul and R&B. A legendary ivory-tickler whose name is synonymous with the Muscle Shoals sound of Alabama, Oldham has backed and/or written songs for the likes of Etta James, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Wilson Pickett, Percy Sledge, Aretha Franklin, Janis Joplin and so many more.

    The Philosophy Of The Shaggs

    The story of The Shaggs is larger than life. It includes a grandmother’s prophecy, a driven father, three unassuming sisters, a cat named Foot-Foot, and perhaps the most polarizing album of all time.
