Ok, got a 3 hour shift on my old college radio station April 30th.  Any requests?

I was just enjoying reading the older posts. I happen to work in a well known bookstore and my job is the magazine department. I had to laugh! (oh, the stories I could tell!)  I wholeheartedly agree about the placement of the men's magazines next to the music ones. That can be one creepy aisle! Especially when you get the "regulars" who come in to paw the latest issue of God knows what skin mag! I do get aggressive when I need to get work done. It scares them off for a little while! I will check out magnet and big takeover. Sometimes there's so many magazines that come in, I overlook what could be good to read! Thanks.

Shindig looks cool, but the US subscription's steep (£39 = $62.30) for 6 issues.

That's the magazine; title wouldn't come to mind last night. Plan on subscribing to it.

Is it Shindig? That's a good one... just don't see it often here.

I've had subscription to Big Takeover in the past. Plan on subscribing soon to British magazine which focuses primarily on garage bands. Only recently discovered the magazine but name is escaping me at the moment.

I think if I saw music mags under Men's Interests I would talk to a store manager and complain. That's sexist.

One of my favorite not-all-music magazines is Bust magazine (http://www.bust.com). To quote the Bust folks, "With an attitude that is fierce, funny, and proud to be female, BUST provides an uncensored view on the female experience. BUST tells the truth about women's lives and presents a female perspective on pop culture. BUSTing stereotypes about women since 1993." The ultimate anti-Cosmopolitan. They cover music, books, funky fashion without being militant feminist. I highly recommend it.

Ugh... music mags in the men's section? This is why you need subscriptions, I suppose. The only two music mags I subscribe to are Magnet and Big Takeover. Both have good writing and loads of reviews. I also pick up Ugly Things, but it's not out on a regular schedule, so I just buy it at the local indie record shop.

Live365 has new radio site supposedly geared for "digital Moms". I for one won't be listening as it appears to be top 40/easy listening/jazz/talk radio. We are definitely in the minority when it comes to our tastes in music but then again I only had a couple of friends in my youth who had an obsession with rock music. I too was quite incensed recently when I was in a Barnes and Noble and saw the rock magazines under the subject area entitled "Mens Interests".

Think that says so much about the awful stereotype of women/rock music. Like we're only here to be eye candy in the videos! How about we want to read rock mags without having to hang out in what we'd call the 'top shelf' section!

I know just how you felt Nancy - I've found myself walk away from the aisle when lots of ogling men there - walk around and return when they've gone, like its ME that's doing something furtive!
