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".
Comment by Jo Nichols on November 13, 2010 at 4:03am
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!

A review of The Allman Brothers Band -One Way Out-

This is one of the finest books that I have read in a long time. This book is fascinating and doesn’t let up. Alan Paul’s well documented history warts and all on the Allman Brothers Band is a fascinating and reverting account told by not only the band members but by the people that have been a part of the band and their…See More

Johnny Cash - The Sun Years -1954-1958

When the barriers that separated pop and country music began to crumble in the wake of Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash was one the first young country artists to take a place in the pop charts. Ironically, as hillbilly music slicked itself up in search of a wider market. Johnny Cash, broke through with a sound that was so sparse and under -produced that it must have seemed anachronistic even to the more conservative elements of the Nashville establishments. Johnny Cash was born in the remote rural…See More
