About Us

What is femchord?

femchord features women and non-binary people who make, promote, talk, and love music. femchord started in 2016 when Julia Wejchert and Kate Ida got sick of hearing “I don’t know any women in music.” What you won’t find here: Questions like, “What’s it like to be a girl in a band?” What you will find here: Awesome features, playlists, and a kickass radio show highlighting women-led music acts and women and nonbinary people involved in all aspects music.

femchord.fm is hosted on Radio Free Brooklyn from 10-11 pm (ET) every Tuesday. It can be streamed live on radiofreebrooklyn.com. We’re extremely grateful to our radio partners at Radio Free Brooklyn for their dedication to producing diverse, meaningful content.
