Whiskey Rock Lounge

We’re powered by MyLesbianRadio.com -featuring The Whiskey Rock Lounge, an all new Podcast and Zoom show with hosts Denise Warner and singer JD Danner. Plenty of good chat with entertaining guests and topics. You can find The Lesbian Book Club here too! Our shows are largely LGBTQ but we’re inclusive to all.

JD and Denise have a fantastic chat with Miami's Marky G, long time disc jockey, host, presenter and the main juggler of all things for the annual LGBTQ+ Film Festivals. We discuss this year's OutShineFilm Festival - going on NOW-and what it means to the community, running for 24 years in Miami and 13 years in Fort Lauderdale. Mark talks about how the festivals have evolved, what you can expect this year and how they've adapted during these Covid times. Denise and Mark reminisce a bit about how Mark gave Denise her start as a presenter over 20 years ago on an FM dance music station Party 93.1 when it was unheard of for a gay radio talk show to be on your radio.

JD and Denise have a midday catch up over drinks, JD having Bailey's in her toasted coconut coffee, which of course grosses Denise out, who's having Shanky's Irish Vanilla whiskey in her cream soda. The ladies catch up on their duties taking care of family with Covid last month, their birthday's, what they've been doing, reading, and watching when they've had the time.  To view this on our YouTube Channel, click this link. 

With JD still on the go taking care of family members, Denise spends some time with out British author Paul Burston ("The Gay Divorcee", "The Black Path", "The Closer I Get"), who not only has some top notch novels out, he's also created and hosts the very successful and long running "Polari Literary Salon" for years now, curating entertaining authors to read from their own books for audiences around London. Tune in and find out how he adapted Polari, during these trying Covid times and now expanded it with writing Work Shops, shows and a tour with pal, VG Lee, fellow author and stand up comedian.

While JD tends to her Covid ravaged family and their -thankfully-mild cases, Denise takes over to have a long awaited chat with NY's own Debra Barsha, a queer Broadway musician, musical theater director, composer and singer who's spent her adult life involved in Broadway music, and teaching, directing and writing. Currently bringing "Radiant Baby" back in a new revival, as well as preparing for "TINA", the Tina Turner story. They discuss Billy Porter, life in the theater, all the different musicals they've enjoyed over the years and the shows Debra has done. To watch the show on our YouTube Channel, click this link.

JD and Denise have a conversation with Dan Renzi, who you might remember from MTV's "Real World Miami" and "Road Rules vs Real World Challenges". All these years later and Dan is a nurse now, traveling all over the country fighting COVID as a frontline healthcare warrior. They chat about the renewed interest, reboot talk and nostalgia from back then as well as vaccine hesitation, misinformation and oh yeh- Dan and Denise's obsession with The Eurovision Song Contest.

JD has a little Mount Gay Rum and coke while Denise indulges in a craft brew from Tiny Rebel Brewery called Stay Puft, a marshmallow porter. The ladies share some good news that Denise received and then they have an interesting chat with Marjorie Waldo, the CEO of Arts Garage, a fantastic venue in Delray Beach, Florida where all kinds of music, performers, and artists are welcomed. Marjorie discusses the Covid safety guidelines they've put in place, the acts they've had and the new Garage Kweens show they are putting on in April, how to buy tickets for shows or be a donor. We don't have any video this week, but we'll have more next week.
