    1. Been listening all day off & on to these women DJs play music by women from around the world. Right now it’s The Home Stretch with Hannah Levin. Stay tuned and listening to these creative women till 12 midnight tonight.

    2. I’m listening right now to the Early Morning Mix on KXCI community radio, with Anne Shivers. “Women Who Move You” is the theme today. Let’s celebrate international women, from all over the world. Having been born/raised in multi-cultural Hawaii, I well know the value of different cultures and music.
