Show #1  

RuPaul  Betty  Betty

The Big Voice, God or Merman?   JD Doyle, Jim Brochu, Jone Devlin, & Steve Schalchlin

Above, RuPaul's wonderfully queer xmas CD "Ho, Ho, Ho," from 1997, and Betty's "Snowfolk." And, in 2003 Steve Schalchlin & Jim Brochu performed at Houston's Stages, and stopped by our Queer Voices studio for a live performance. Below, Roger Kuhn's new Xmas demo EP and a canded shot of Matthew Duffy and Roger, in 2004, and a couple of his press shots. Below them is cabaret artist Shawn Ryan and composer and sometimes performer Fred Barton, shown accompanying his Miss Gulch character.

Jeff Mansk is Flipping the Pig   Evil Beaver

Above, Namoli Brennet's xmas single "Sugarplum Dreams," from 2004, and newcomer Joshua Klipp, with his 2006 EP. Below them, Jeff Mansk's band is called Flipping the Pig, and Evil Beaver is Evie Evil and Laura Ann Beaver, and their 2001 CD smelled like Christmas Spirit. Below, Cleveland's North Coast Men's Chorus and their two xmas CDs, but alas, the songs I played are not on them. To their right and farther below is Ann Reed, her 2001 holiday CD, a pic of her (and me) at a Houston concert, and Corinne Curcio. I'm showing Corinne's latest CD, as the xmas song was only an mp3 file.

Danny Riddle  BD Wong  Cabaret Noel

Above, Danny Riddle's 1986 album, BD Wong, and the "Cabaret Noel" CD Wong appears on.
Below is the irrepressible Jackie Beat, who is a Holiday Ho, and the very political Jeffrey Beringer.

   Christine Jorgensen

Okay, at left is not a holiday song, but it's such a rare and historic recording that I could not wait to share it. Christine Jorgensen, as I'm sure you know, was the first person to attract major media attention when she had a sex change operation, in 1952. Such attention thrust her into the limelight for the rest of her life, and she spent many years in show business. In 1958 an interview album was released, but nothing every surfaced from her nightclub act, until now.

The recording at left was captured in 1982, and her act includes her telling stories, doing a few impressions and a bit of singing. Of course the obvious theme song is "I Enjoy Being a Girl." This will not be available on disc, only on iTunes, at This Link. Oh, note the newspaper headline in the background of the's from the 12/1/52 New York Daily News, which splashed across the front page, "EX-GI BECOMES BLONDE BEAUTY!"

Sandra Bernhard  David Lasley   RuPaul

Above, Sandra Bernhard, and behind her, the various artists CD "Breaking for the Holidays," from which her song "Miracle of Lights" was taken. Center, uber-background vocalist David Lasley was upfront with his xmas song, which has not been released, but hey, sometimes when you ask artists for their work they actually send it. And, wrapping up the first show is RuPaul and "I Just Can't Wait for Christmas," only found on the CD single "People Are People," which was released right at the end of 2005.
