Tapes are rolling and we’re recording tomorrow’s Not Weird, Queer. I’ll be featuring music from the Queerty article “Ten Great Gay Love Songs To Crack The Toughest Cynic” including music mentioned in the comments.  I’m jazzed about this episode, danced my feet off, I was told they’d grow back. Listen to the the LIVE Stream by clicking the red and white Listen Live to the right, it should be red and white for most all listeners, it’s not a White and Gold Dress.

Last January was the 15th anniversary of Queer Music Heritage, and I’ve much enjoyed sharing and preserving our music culture, but I’ve decided that QMH has had a long enough run and that the show for March will be the last show. And this month is also the last for OutRadio. I want to devote more energy to my history websites, like

http://www.houstonLGBThistory.org
http://www.texasobituaryproject.org

and my digitizing project for early Houston publications, so it will be nice not to have the radio deadlines pressing me. But don’t worry, the Queer Music Heritage website is not going away. It will stay as a history resource, and it archives almost 580 hours of programming to amuse you. You’d have to listen around the clock for 24 days to hear it all.

You can hear my last two shows at

The March QMH is a special four-hour romp with Camp Music.

Thanks for your support over the years,

Congrats JD Doyle, and thanks for all you do, you are indeed The Guru of Queer Music!
