The History of The Lesbian Lounge from MyLesbianRadio.com
March 18, 2016
Welcome! Where have you been?! "The Lesbian Lounge" Podcast is in it's 10th year! Started in 2006, your host Denise Warner was living in sunny South Florida about 2 blocks from her best friend, Donna. These two lesbian best friends would basically broadcast their weekly Girls Night to listeners, complete with drinks, smoke and snacks. The weekly crew consisted of the brilliant, nutty producer Vicki, revolving interns, managing partner and referee JRoe, the ever-Donna-doting butcher Deb and sexy smart-ass Jemma. Later, they included LGBT news, they hosted live events, interview popular LGBT guests and showcased LGBT businesses, music, and projects.
As the podcast rolls into its 10th year, many changes have evolved. Denise moved to London, England after marrying Jemma. Listeners and fans followed their relationship from it's initial stages to the wedding and the move. Donna married Deb and the two remain close with Producer Vicki, although busy lives and careers took over and now they drop in from time to time as Denise has taken over hosting and producing from London. The show focuses on events and news happening in the U.S. and the U.K. - the global lesbian scene complete with headlines, pop culture, music, international LGBT guests and entertainment gossip. With over 4 million downloads, an extensive archive of shows, highlights, "Best Of" clips, and vintage classics from as far back as 2007, you can find old to new podcasts on iTunes searching "Lesbian Lounge" or "Denise & Donna" and as always "ReallyWow Productions" for the most current.
