PRA Archive #: 

Host: Ann Noolen, Lesbian Task Force of the San Francisco Commission on the Status of Women. Guests: Ann Worthington, Women's Alcohol Coalition; Celinda Cantu, Center for Feminist Therapy & Education; Bonnie Malcolm, Whitman Radcliffe Foundation; and musician Meg Christian, Olivia Records. Includes a song by Meg about her own alcoholism. Includes listener phone-in comments. Produced by Karla Tonella. Engineered by Chana Wilson. Technical note from Wilson: Aircheck. Levels too low...a whole lot of studio noise, needs everything possible, but worth it for the content. I keep telling them those are the wrong mics but what do I know, I'm not techie (sic).

From label: "What do you know about alcoholism in general and how it affects lesbians specifically? What is a co-alcoholic? What games do alcoholics play with themselves? Is there a double standard for men and women alcoholics? What is alcoholism anyway? The program includes several women speaking about their alcoholism, phone-ins, and Meg Christian singing about her own alcoholism. The references to the San Francisco Bay Area at the end can easily be edited. A moving discussion. Produced by Karla Tonella, KPFA, 1979."

Lesbe Friends was a program that was put together by the Lesbian Task Force of the San Francisco Commission on the Status of Women.
