This week on Milk and Vodka, we had Windsor artist Den-Igan in the studio with us. She answered some questions for us on what it’s like to be a solo-female artist living in Windsor.
She also played some songs for us from her new album, such as Sunshine Dan and Pancakes no Heartache.
Den-Igan was so much fun to have in the studio, she shared lots of stores and advice to our listeners and her music is a beautiful mix of melodic acoustic guitar and powerful vocals. We also had her pick out some music that inspired her, so we heard Crissi Cochrine and Lilly Frost.

On Monday the 26th, local musician Den-igan will be gracing us with her presence. Den-igan is going to be playing live from the studio as well as answer a few questions about her music and life in the music scene. Be sure to tune in next week to catch her interview with Nicole as well as great performance. If you happen to miss it, be sure to check out the archives at CJAM.ca. Check out one of her songs by visiting her website.
Finally! A great reason to use up some of that change you’ve been toting around! Tomorrow night (Sept 20th), CrissiCochranewill be performing at Phog Lounge. Support your local artists and enjoy additional performances by Kevin Echlin and Keats Conlon! We’ll see you there.
Milk and Vodka is moving to 4:00pm-5:00pm starting Monday, September 26th! To start off on the right foot in our new time slot, we will be hosting a guest: local musician, Den-igan.
Also: here on M&V we try to do our best to promote healthy women’s sexuality, and to prove it, we are developing a two part special. The first part will focus on female masturbation and the second part will feature a discussion on sexual scripting. We will be giving lots of notice for these shows, but for now all we can tell you is that these will be featured during the later hours (not during Milk and Vodka’s usual time). Stay tuned into our blog for more details or follow us on twitter: mandvradio or on facebook

You have been host to a great many female artists and have been supportive of women-oriented events like Smash the Glass and the Women’s Studies Student Association’s launch of their feminist publication, Are We There Yet. This is exactly why we were so disappointed to learn that you have not yet included any female-artist headliners in your upcoming – and very well known – event, Phog Phest. In fact, there isn’t a single woman in any of the six headlining bands.
Because Phog is an alternative venue (arguably, the most popular in Windsor Ontario), we would like to express our frustration that you have decided to host an all-male line-up, despite having access to many prominent female artists.
It would benefit the community greatly to support female artists, like you have in the past, by including them in your Phog Phest 3. Thanks for taking the time to read this and for considering our concerns.
