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.

A long time friend of JD joins the ladies and we had a great time talking to Patti Davila, a cruise ship singer who's career was docked by COVID, so she re-invented herself during lockdown and became a real estate agent, staying afloat during lockdown. Now that venues are re-opening, she's back to singing and still selling real estate! Such an inspiration- wait until you hear about how she weaves philanthropy through her music, doing all kinds of fundraisers also, her journey with her husband, Jozay is really special.

JD brings us up to speed on her nurse maid duties with a family full of Covid, Denise gears up for her birthday and Tyler pops by with a delicious drink to honor the occasion. He creates a drink with two of Denise's favorites, Jameson whiskey and Rumplemintz along with Godiva chocolate & a special mixture of vodka chocolate milk expressly made by Mom, Judy, thus creating a spin on the old lady Grasshopper (thanks, dude!) and introducing The Lotus. These shows are always better to watch so To view the show on our YouTube Channel, click this link.

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 are almost at a milestone of 50 episodes, so we recap of some of our musical moments, featuring British musicians MiRi, the all girl band "Eeek" with Lucy and Mandy Burton and of course, the iconic Scottish musician Horse McDonald. It's a "Women Who Rock" special!  To view this show on our YouTube channel, click this link.

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.

Denise whips up some black cherry madness with Red Stag-Jim Beam Cherry Bourbon and Virgil's Black Cherry soda, while JD cools down with a lemonade and Absolute Vodka (the Pride edition) while they welcome the one and only Andrea Meyerson of "Women On A Roll" and "Women On The Net". There are very few people who've done more for women's social events than Andrea. From her first softball league, to producing her many stand up comedy shows with the ladies we love, to trips and excursions, films and a new documentary - this is a woman who loves what she does.

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.

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.
