New Podcast and Details on the International Singer Songwriter Hall of Fame on my web log
Love Melanie

International Singer-Songwriters Hall of Fame

I recently launched the International Singer-Songwriters Hall of Fame (ISSHF). Here's the mission statement:

"Our mission is to unite and bring awareness of singer-songwriters all over the
world. It is now time for western consciousness to enter the world—
participate, regenerate, expand, and become part of the global musical community.
Music is the universal language connecting the invisible realities
of our human soul. Even the most simple song can bring profound inner
understanding of one’s self, and become a tangible thread from
one to another. Music has the ability to bridge, heal and save our planet.
The ISSHF will be a musical contribution to world wholeness and peace."

Hurricane Nancy

I met up with an old friend Nancy Burton who worked under the names of Nancy Panzika Kalish and Hurricane Nancy.
Nancy is and was known and published in the sixties as the first female underground cartoonist. You know Art Crumb "Keep on Trucking" - in one line let me remind you or shed light if you were too young in the sixties or not there at all, it was very difficult for a woman to emerge in certain fields. Major radio only playlisted one woman an hour. You passed if you were in a male dominated group. It was the same or worse for a female cartoonist. Nancy never stopped drawing but life took a turn or two. Her website is
and we are all very excited about her new art. So check it out and maybe buy a little something. Great for a bathroom wall where one has time to contemplate. In a world where nothing is black and white it's comforting to know there is Nancy. Love Melanie
