About Carrie Courogen

Carrie Courogen is a writer based in New York, NY. She currently works with Condé Nast, where she serves as associate editor and social media manager for Iris. Additionally, she is the co-host, co-writer, and editor of ‘77 Music Club, a podcast about classic — and often overlooked — albums. Her freelance writing — on everything from pop culture to classic rock to “lady heroes” — has been featured in print and online for publications like PAPER (where she wrote one of 2017’s most-read pieces about the overlooked importance of Tina Weymouth and how mainstream music criticism often fails female artists), NPR Music (where she wrote about Buckingham Nicks for their Turning the Tables series), Guitar World, Quartz, Bustle, and the NY Daily News.

Hi, this is me on BBC Radio 5 live talking about Fleetwood Mac and Lindsey Buckingham’s departure. They ran out of time, so I spoke for probably less than a minute — and one of the things I said was “whacked out on drugs” like the baby boomer mom that I truly am — and they pronounced my name as “Gorgon” at the end. But it’s all totally fine because they introduced me as a ~music journalist and podcaster~ on ~BBC~ which was kinda cool, I guess.

77 Music Club x Chris Frantz the Talking Head Radio Show


Carly and I took ’77 Music Club from our apartment to Bridgeport, CT for a guest session with the always fun and funky and wonderful Chris Frantz on his monthly WPKN radio show. We had a blast playing and talking about some of our favorite tunes that we’ve covered on the pod so far. ICYMI, listen to the archived interview here.
