Oh dear. I hadn't even thought about that. I guess we like what we like and not everyone looks at everything through race or gender.

I just close my eyes and open my ears and if it sounds good to me then I couldn't give a crap who wrote it or what colour their skin may be.

You said "don't tell me to request'? Why not...that is a reasonable answer. If enough people like a song and that goes to top of list as a result, then ..bang...equality.

I really hope that GT admin' don't think along these lines...there's enough kneejerk accusations going on around all sorts of subjects across the planet without making music about sexism or racism too.

Now.....I'm going to keep requesting Neil Young and Jimi Hendrix songs and keep my fingers crossed. If they don't make it, then I guess not enough members agree with my tastes, but doubt because Jimi was black.
