Women's Music Show host Liz continues her series of interviews with local female musicians. This time we hear from Rose Hoene and Leyla Aktekin.

Hoene's musical path started with performances in Duluth and led to time in Los Angeles working at a recording studio and at Geffen Records.

On November 19, 2017, Women's Music Show host Liz brought two local female performers, Maxi Childs and Robyn Rohweder, into the studio for a fun conversation about their time in music.

In a year that saw the launch of Duluth's first all-female music festival, FeMNfest, we look back at a time when women weren't such a commonplace part of the music scene. Liz Minette talks with Ione Tomasetti of Iron Range band Renown and Duluth's Lorene Couture of bands Hostage and Legacy about their time in music, from their first-ever gigs to giving words of encouragement to a young Bob Dylan (then Bobby Zimmerman) after watching him get booed off the stage during a talent show to hearing their songs on the radio for the first time.
