As mentioned on “Rockin’ the Blues from Canada”, members of local cover band Prosser’s Rock will be paying a visit to our studios here at CHMR. They will be primarily promoting their appearance and those of other bands performing on behalf of the St. John’s branch of Long & McQuade’s annual national fundraiser for children’s music therapy programs. Local proceeds will go to the Janeway Children’s Hospital. As a secondary topic they will be talking about their alternate careers as musicians versus their erstwhile professional day-jobs and preoccupations as parents. In the event that you miss the interview, you can catch them live at Fat Cat on Nov. 24. They are all local musicians who would appreciate your support.

I have to admit I’ve almost completely lost track of what’s happening on my Facebook page, so I would like to offer my apologies to those whose birthday or other special event I missed in the last couple of weeks. The same goes with my emails – just way too many to keep pace with. Eventually, though, I will read and respond to any non-spamming messages. I have to say I get far more submissions from male musicians, and way more from non-Canadians, which I find very curious, so if you are a female Canadian musician serious about getting radio airplay, feel free to send me one or two introductory mp3s at Please mention CHMR and/or “Iron Maidens” in the subject line, so I’m sure to open the message.

The Salty Dolls and the Moonshine Men will be performing at the Rose and Thistle Pub on Water Street tonight, at around 8:30 p.m. Fabulous lead vocalist Suzanne Power has been doing a great job of promoting other local musicians here in St. John’s, so this is your chance to see and hear her in action!

Tracy K and Blue Thunder did succeed in winning the local vote to represent Thunder Bay, ON, at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis – congratulations and good luck down south! As mentioned previously, Sunday Wilde’s new CD, He Gave Me a Blue Nightgown, is almost ready for its official launch, but she is already getting airplay for a couple of tunes from it.

If you or someone you know is mourning the loss of a child, The Compassionate Friends Canada, Newfoundland Branch, holds an informal gathering of support for bereaved parents on the third Thursday of each month. The next meeting is scheduled for November 22, from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m., at the Health Sciences Centre, in Room 2J619. For more information, email

I’m Honey Girl, and I’ll be right back with selected “Iron Maidens”, a program comprised of music composed and/or recorded by women determined to succeed in the industry alongside their male peers. Playlist selections include male-female duos or ensembles comprised of both genders.

10) Shirley Jackson (When the Money’s All Gone) – “Stop, Look and Listen” (3:23)
