Monday’s edition of “The Freak Power Ticket” will mark 45 years since the Stonewall uprising (commemorated annually during GLBT “Pride Month” celebrations each June). The two-hour broadcast will sketch out a modern genealogy of Queer culture through music, poetry, and commentary.
The show’s playlist will feature Gay Icons and Artists from the late Victorian era, the Roaring Twenties, the Beat and early Rock’n’Roll Generations of the 1950s, all the way through to the Disco, early Punk, and New Wave music of the mid-to-late 1970s to the the early 1980s.
The major focus of the program though will be Glam Rock’s androgyny and sexual rebellion of the early-to-mid 1970s.
Tune in to hear: Oscar Wilde, Josephine Baker, Cole Porter, Allen Ginberg, Little Richard, Liza Minnelli, David Bowie, T. Rex, New York Dolls, Roxy Music, Lou Reed, Jobriath, Suzi Quatro, Divine, Sylvester, Prince, Grace Jones, Morrissey, and many other gender-bending Superstars Who Fell to Earth.
“The Freak Power Ticket” airs on Mondays in the summer from 11am-1pm.
