YTAA Book Discussion This Week: Jeff Tweedy’s ‘Let’s Go (So we can get back)

Jeff Tweedy Book

Our last on-air book discussion of 2018 focuses on Let’s Go (So We Can Get Back) by Wilco frontman and Uncle Tupelo co-founder Jeff Tweedy. Guests in the studio include Jeremy Siegrist of The Typical Johnsons and musician and supermusicfan Mandy Jewell who will share their ideas about the book. This interesting book covers Tweedy’s life experiences, personal biography and his work in Uncle Tupelo and Wilco.

If you have comments and thoughts about the book, feel free to share those with us in the discussion section of the event page or email us at drjytaa@gmail.com. We will also open the phone line during the show so that those listening can join in on the conversation as well.

As always you can listen along online at WUDR.udayton.edu OR 99.5 & 98.1fm in Dayton, Ohio from 3-6pm Tuesday, December 18th!

On-Air Book Discussion

ImageWhat books about music do you recommend for our next book conversation? Past books we have discussed have included ‘Record Collecting for Girls’ by Courtney E. Smith, ‘Guided by Voices: A Brief History: Twenty-One Years of Hunting Accidents in the Forests of Rock and Roll’, ‘Waging Heavy Peace’ by Neil Young, and ‘Petal Pusher’ by Laurie Lindeen of Zuzu’s Petals. All terrific books by and about musicians.  What book would you recommend to Dr. and Mrs. J to read and then discuss on Your Tuesday Afternoon Alternative in a few weeks?

Come on… we need the suggestions folks!  We will then read and review the book on-air.  You can join the conversation.  Won’t that be fun!
