WERS’ 75th birthday year continues, with this past calendar month also happening to be Pride Month! All June long, we found ways to spotlight queer voices, whether by doing a deep dive on queer radio history, sharing our personal pride and music entwined journeys, or playing LGBTQ+ artists. (Read all of our Pride blog content here). 

Thanks to your help, we did a lot of that latter thing on the last weekend of June in order to close out Pride Month with a bang… 75 songs worth to be exact. Without further ado, here are your 75 Artists of Pride:
