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.

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.

JD and Denise catch up over a drink waiting on Tyler, only to realize JD hadn't sent the link. Awesome! So Tyler joins in, and has a special surprise - he created a cocktail for Denise's Mom! He also teaches us about balancing with citrus or bitters, sweets as well as the delicate art of muddling, all while building the perfect drink, starting with Bob Dylan's Heaven's Door whiskey.  It's a "Marlini" because yes, my mother's name is Marlene. As always, these shows are best to WATCH, so click this link for our YouTube Channel.

JD and Denise welcome British comedian and author Rosie Wilby joins us to discuss the recent success of her book "The Break Up Monologues", which spawned from a dumping that happened to her a while ago, launching her into collecting stories, facts and statistics regarding break ups- of course, with her own funny insightful spin. She's also got a podcast of the same name. Rosie's book is now available in Australia and The United States, so we discuss traveling during COVID times and all the adjustments that now come with promoting the book. Rosie also tells us about a few UK festivals she'll be attending. To watch the video of this show on our YouTube channel, click this link.

JD and Denise welcome Tyler, our Memphis mixologist, back from his big Middle American Road Trip- from Route 66 to the outskirts of Colorado, Tyler ate and drank his way thru the mid-west. He got major inspiration for his newest creation, aptly called "One From The Road", made with bourbon, brown sugar, spicy New Mexican pepper, and of course some Amaro bitters and a gorgeous garnish. Tyler explains the explosion of flavours and different types of bitters, as well as the Mezcal trend and why we better buy it up soon. These shows with Tyler are really worth watching, so you can see the ingredients and style in his cocktails. To view on our YouTube channel, click this link. 

JD and Denise wait on their guest -who ends up being a no show, so the ladies drink up and have a good old fashioned gab fest.... THEN remember to turn the recorder on. So, more drinks and more gab and more laughs. For the video of this show, click the link here.

JD and Denise (FINALLY!) celebrate Pride with a little peanut butter whiskey! Denise has Sheep Dog, and JD has Ram's Point. They welcome Shawna and Courtney of "Sharc and Rae" Clothing, a clothing & swimwear company geared towards our LGBTQ community with a focus on body positivity and confidence by the pool! Whatever your look, style or body size, you deserve to feel comfortable at the beach or the pool. From masculine or left-of to feminine or right inbetween, Shawna discusses all the reasons why this is the swimwear line for you. No more board shorts and tank tops, no more finding the right bottoms and the wrong top or vice versa. Happy Summer, Happy Pride! To watch our video of the show, 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. To watch a video of this show, click on the link. 

JD and Denise have some cocktails (Coffee with Coffee Infused Vodka, and a classic Whiskey Sour) tonight while Denise introduces her friend of over 30 years, Debbie Savigliano, the founder of Bianca's Kids, a 501c3 Non-Profit Charity Organization out of New Jersey that grants wishes to families and children in need. Debbie shares the story behind starting the organization after losing her 21 year old niece, Bianca, who was struck and killed by a car as she walked to work at a daycare center early one August morning. Debbie shifted her grief into creating Bianca's Kids to honor her niece and the results have been incredible as the group has now granted over 30,000 wishes for kids all over the country and continues to do good with donations in all forms from time and goods to checks.
