smoothfm will be reflecting International Women’s Day by celebrating some of their listener’s favourite female artists with a playlist comprised entirely of women, and their biggest hits, from 6am to midnight this Friday 8 March.
Tracks will include Adele – Rolling in the Deep, Tina Arena – Sorrento Moon, Olivia Newton-John – Xanadu, Whitney Houston – I Wanna Dance With Somebody, Aretha Franklin – Respect, Madonna – Into The Groove and Cyndi Lauper – Girls Just Want To Have Fun to name a few.
smoothfm’s leading ladies, Bogart Torelli and Jennifer Hansen have nominated their favourite female artists and the songs that reflect this special day for them.
Jennifer says, “The most obvious and favourite for International Women’s Day would have to be Helen Reddy’s ‘I Am Woman’. Reddy was honoured this year at Say G’Day in LA with a Lifetime achievement award and this song also won her a Grammy in 1972 beating Barbra Streisand and Roberta Flack. It’s the most iconic feminist song of all time and I adore it.”
Bogart Torelli selected Tina Turner’s ‘Simply The Best’, saying, “I saw her in Sydney on the Private Dancer Tour and she blew me away. An amazing human from singing in the Nutbush church choir to leaving an abusive relationship to super stardom. Tina is the best.”
