Blues Moon Radio playlist - Women!

Good evening... tonight's show will begin at 6 p.m. and because we are at the end of women's history month, the theme is women.

A twist on the theme is that the songs (with one exception) will be sung by men about women. Us gals need to let the men pay their tribute, now don't we?

As songs are played, the list will be updated, so hit your refresh button regularly.

At the end of the show, we'll feature Koko Taylor's "I'm a Woman"... you men joke that we women just have to get the last word in.

And we always do.

It's a gurrrrl thang...
