We are also are asking you, dear listener, to post a photograph of yourself holding your favourite album by a female artist or a group featuring a woman/women with a blurb as to why you love it and tag us using the handles below. We will retweet and share our favourite posts.

Please use the following tags:

and please include the following hashtags:

#IWD2018 #AlbumsByWomen #ClassicAlbumSundays

Check out this submission from Gilles Peterson as an example:

“I was always fascinated by the all female group Alive! I was surprised that an all female group would come up with such a high powered ‘macho’ type sound… I was only around 18 at the time… Alive! Classic uplifting dance music!” #IWD2018 #AlbumsByWomen #ClassicAlbumSundays

International Women’s Day was founded in 1909 commemorating the movement for women’s rights and striving for social parity.

Classic Album Sundays Nick Cave ‘The Boatman’s Call’ Musical Lead-Up Playlist

Our Musical Lead-Up playlist gives Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds’ The Boatman’s Call a musical context and can be used as an introduction to a full replay of the album. It includes his duet with PJ Harvey which resulted in a love affair and a break up – both of which inspired songs on Nick Cave and The Bad Seed’s 10th studio album. It also includes songs of a similar spirit from some of his influences like Leonard Cohen, Nina Simone, Bob Dylan and Lead Belly. It also includes a Serge Gainsbourg covercollaboration with Bad Seed Mick Harvey. And it wraps with a musician who was an influence on the teenage Cave with a song that could have been an inspiration behind “There is a Kingdom”.
