10 of My Favorite Albums by Female Artists

by Gem Miller

It’s the end of Women’s History Month and no one loves women in music more than I do. If you haven’t tuned into my show No Boys Allowed (noon on Thursdays on WMUC digital), perhaps you haven’t heard about my passion for women in music, particularly pop. In fact, I almost exclusively listen to female musicians. Since I consider myself an expert on the topic and have a huge ego, I thought I would share my favorite albums by female musicians. I focused most of this list on contemporary albums and this list is roughly ranked from least to most favorite.


Back for the third time, we here at WMUC put in overtime to bring you the third edition of our zine, REVERIE. With spring brings upon an era of growth, which we showcased with an array of talented writers, photographers, poets, artists, and more. Join us in this journey by reading REVERIE here.

Black History Month 2021 is truly like no other. With Bobby Shmurda finally home, JoJo Siwa v. Dababy (2021), Lil Uzi Vert’s $24 million forehead diamond, and all the discourse around Lori Harvey, each day is a little more explosive than the last, but in the best way possible. To celebrate the culture, I made it my goal to listen to primarily black artists. I may have exhausted my Spotify with the hours I clocked, but here are the 5 albums that got me through Black History Month.

Ranking All The Halftime Shows I Care About

by Gem Miller

It’s the end of February: the most boring, cold, and all-around yucky month. The only thing to look forward to is Valentine's Day (which you may or may not be dreading) and the Super Bowl. Perhaps you like the Super Bowl, because you like sports, or perhaps you are like me, and love to judge the Halftime shows. As I watched The Weeknd's halftime show, I couldn’t help but wonder how the past Halftimes shows compare. So, I sat through as many halftime shows as I could stomach before I got bored. Here’s my personal ranking from worst to best:
