Joanna Stingray on Red Wave and how she smuggled underground Russian rock music out of the Soviet Union
On June 27, 1986, an album was released in the U.S. called Red Wave. It was a compilation of underground Russian rock music that was smuggled out of the Soviet Union by Los Angeles musician Joanna Stingray, who was on a mission to introduce this music to the West. Now, she’s released a memoir — also called Red Wave — about her time in the Soviet underground rock scene. For the 35th anniversary of the album, Stingray joined us to talk about her time behind the Iron Curtain.
