Gail Ann Dorsey: 8Track
8Track with guest DJ Gail Ann Dorsey
To put it mildly, Gail Ann Dorsey is a world class musician. The renowned bass player and singer might be most famous for her 20-plus years as an integral member of David Bowie’s band, but Gail has also worked with an array of artists — from The National and Lenny Kravitz, to Indigo Girls and Gang of Four — and released several solo albums.
With that wealth of musical experience, I knew that Gail would also possess a wealth of musical knowledge, making her a perfect guest for "8Track." As you’ll hear, she also has a longtime love of radio. But what I didn’t know was the significant role that film plays in her story. so this "8Track" is all about songs as soundtracks — to movies, and to life.
