- Hi D/T listers . . .
Every once in a while, the issue of when to cross-post on both the
D/T and TG lists comes up. My own personal rule is that when the
subject matter is primarily about Tracy as a solo artist -- her own
tours, her own CD releases, her own newsletters -- I post to the TG
list only. When it is primarily relevant to Dave & Tracy as a duo --
including news related to Dave as a solo artist, or duo releases such
as "Seven is the Number" and the upcoming "American Noel," I tend to
post to the D/T list only. I very rarely post to both lists, except
in the cases where it truly seems like the right thing to do, or when
Tracy asks me to share a particular message with both lists.
But it got me to thinking today: what's the overlap between the two
There are 473 members on the D/T list.
There are 248 members on the TG list.
151 people are on both lists.
322 people are on the D/T list only.
97 people are on the TG list only.
I guess I can understand why there might be people on the TG list and
not the D/T list: those people who first became fans of Tracy as a
solo artist. I can understand why there might be people on both
lists: to make sure you don't miss news about Tracy as a solo artist,
while not missing any news that might come up about Dave (and which
might not make it to the Tracy list).
But I'm wondering why there are still 322 people who are only on the
D/T list, and who've never joined the TG list.
Yes, I clearly have too much time on my hands today, but I'm truly
curious . . .
RG, on both lists.

But I can imagine a set of people who were on the D&T list because of Dave
and don't particularly want to follow Tracy's solo/duo career. I'm
obviously not in that camp (someone referred to me once as a "Crazy Tracy
fan" and I took that as a compliment), but I can understand how it could
happen, especially as Tracy's post-Dave career takes its own directions.
- I am also on both lists. I never saw Dave perform, but have seen
Tracy and Jim quite a few times.
Having never met Dave, I am still drawn to his music like few other
songwriters I have heard. It is the songwriting aspect that is a
major reason I am on this list. Maybe that is true for others.
