Finely Aged Rewind Episode: Barry Manilow with Tracey Tiernan

A look back at this very fun and also VERY short episode of FB&C from last May because Leslie, Tracey and I spent the first 20 minutes of our time together blabbing and it was wonderful but it took us awhile to actually push record and do the darn episode. We discuss the timeless beauty of the music of Barry Manilow, and his themes of hope and regret and hope again, and how we are NOT ashamed of loving him. We have been friends with Tracey for about 20 years and we love her. What a wonderful talk and we hope you love it.

Tracey is a radio host on 95.1 BRIGHT-FM in Baltimore and host of the podcast, Your Day Brighter, singer. She is a writer and lover of God and people and Indian food.. and Ted Lasso.
