Tana Douglas joins the show in Episode 173 and talks about her career as one of the first female roadies as well as her new book “LOUD” that documents her life and times in the touring industry. She got her start at the age of 15 and then stumbled across AC/DC just as they were just coming onto the scene, the beginning of a wild ride that led to a fun, rewarding career. This episode is sponsored by Audix, Allen & Heath and RCF.
Tana began by working backline, moved along to sound engineer and then transitioned to lighting, where she spent a lot of her time. She talks about the journey as well as the experience of writing the book as well as her current endeavors in mentoring the next generation.
