This week on Global A Go-Go (Monday August 16, 3:00-5:00 PM on WRIR, for two weeks afterwards on the wrir.org archive player, check your local listings for airing on other radio stations, and any old time at my podcast site) I'm joined by Tracy Wilson, who will be spinning the best international recordings she's heard so far in 2021.
Tracy is my former colleague here at WRIR, where she founded our still-running program Cause And Effect. You might be familiar with her own music from the bands Dahlia Seed, Positive No and Ringfinger. Tracy has spent much of her career working in the music business at big-time distributors like Caroline and Fontana. She's moved on to a different occupation, but she still has the same music avocation, or should I say obsession?
Tracy's free newsletter Turntable Report (tinyletter.com/turntablereport) is an invaluable summary of new releases you probably haven't heard yet. And her micro-store Courtesy Desk (courtesydesk.bigcartel.com) makes it easy for you to buy the hard-to-find items she's uncovered for Turntable Report.
Most importantly, Tracy has the biggest ears in the business, so it's my pleasure to hear two hours of new music she's selected specifically with a Global A Go-Go vibe in mind. I think it will be your pleasure as well.
