My previous session guests:
I’m Ste McCabe, hello! I am a queer-feminist pop-punk singer, ex-Dandelion Radio DJ, ‘zine writer, organiser of queer music events and general Northern scum.
I’d never been a radio DJ before joining Dandelion, but it was in fact my first ever ambition when I was a child (after wanting to be a Care Bear, of course).
My main passions in life are queer-feminist politics and underground, edgy, DIY music. My show was a combination of these obsessions combined and you would have heard music of an alternative, punk, electro and indiepop variety – the majority of which were dominated by the voices of women or queers. When I say “queers”, I’m talking about anyone who doesn’t identify with the so called “norms” of sexuality and gender. Alternative music is still generally dominated by one kind of straight man, and I find that really bloody boring. On my show you were likely to hear loads of female vocals, songs of a political queer persuasion, a bit of forgotten gay 80’s pop, bands flying the riot grrrl flag with pride, and whatever else I simply liked to dance to. Most of the music I played I discover from performing at, attending, or organising queer/feminist gigs. I used to do a show as regularly as I could, but other activities took over and I had to stop.
