Why subscribe?

Caryn Rose writes about music history, recorded music, pop culture, and more. My clips are here & my author site is carynrose.com.

Hi there, if you’re here you either read something I wrote somewhere else or are mad about a thing I wrote on Twitter. Please subscribe, even at the free level (you can just read on the Substack app and not get email any more!) because numbers help writers get work and get paid more for that work when we have proof we have people who read that work. THANK YOU.

If you can’t swing a paid subscription, consider my Tip Jar, Amazon Wishlist, or buying a book from my Bookshop.org link.
