That's not to say, however, the Clydebank-born lady is practised in the black arts. And nor does her nose twitch purposefully.
But certainly the owners of radio station, Your Radio, which broadcasts across Dumbarton, Clydebank and beyond, believe Tracey has something of the Samantha about her.
They see she has radio magic, and that's why she's the station's new Managing Director, charged with mounting a serious challenge to the domination of the airwaves by Radio Clyde.
Yet, three years ago, Tracey was, in essence, Radio Clyde. She had been with the station for 22 years, rising from advertising sales team to becoming the station boss.
"I'd grown up with Clyde," she says, smiling in recall over a coffee near her home in Bridge of Weir.
"And I loved the place. I can remember meeting Charlton Heston, Big Country and Cliff Richard at the station, all in that first day. It was fabulous."
Now, as incredible as it sounds, Tracey is set to take on Clyde. And in an emblematic gesture of intent, Your Radio has now moved into new premises, in Clydebank.
"It is all a bit funny how it's turned out. I never thought I would leave Radio Clyde, having been there for 22 years. And I certainly never thought I'd see the day when I'd been running a radio station that's going up against Clyde. But you can never tell . . ."
Three years ago Clyde's parent company Bauer Radio restructured and the likes of MD Paul Cooney and Tracey became surplus to requirements.
Paul Cooney is now with Global Radio, which runs Capital FM in Glasgow. And Tracey too was headhunted by Global Radio, to run their new acquisitions, including Trent FM in Nottingham, Ram FM in Derby and Leicester Sound, based in Nottingham.
"All three had been taken over by Global and rebranded as Capital," she explains. "It was a great challenge. And great fun to run a broadcast centre."
Yet, it must have been a wrench to leave Radio Clyde?
"It was sad, yet at the same time it was exciting to be leaving," she offers.
"What made it easier to leave was I wasn't leaving behind the team I'd created.
"Laterally, at Clyde, there was so much red type and so many financial constraints."
She adds: "I'd never worked outside of Glasgow before and it was time to see the big, bad world. And nothing stays the same forever.
"I was also going through a lot of personal changes in my life at the time.
"My husband and I had separated, so I was determined to move forward, to enjoy the experience, to learn as much as I could."
Tracey worked hard at Global.
"I had three sites to run, weekly meetings with all three teams. I'd go out and about these three stations which had just been bought over. And I had to make sure the operation gelled, in sales and programming."
She also had to sack people.
"At times," she says, her voice despondent.
"But you do try and give people a chance to prove themselves."
Tracey enjoyed her stint with 'the biggest radio group in the country.'
"I was only an hour and fifteen minutes from head office, which meant I was in London a lot of the time. And there were 150 people in the broadcast centre, as opposed to 40 at Clyde. And I guess Global really did showbiz very well."
However, Tracey missed Glasgow. And when she was offered the chance to return home she flew at it.
"I'd been coming back most weekends, to see friends and family. And I realised how much I missed home."
When she talked with the owners of Your Radio, part of the independent media group RMG, Tracey believed she could take the station forward.
"It's a fantastic challenge," she says. "I really want this radio station to grow. It has a great music license to play current music and classic hits, so that really appeals.
"But it's not been performing to its potential. And that's where I come in. The owners are investing in the station, with new premises and new talent.
"And it's in my back yard," she adds, smiling. "Your Radio is something of a hidden gem. And it will really shine."
Tracey feels Your Radio has advantages over Radio Clyde.
"The world has changed in terms of what Radio Clyde do now.
"The station has, I think, lost its local identity. I think it really was once connected with the community - but not so much now.
"It's moved to networking many of its shows, (where one presenter will broadcasting across the stations owned by parent company the Bauer Group) and I don't think this is the right way to go.
"What I want to do is connect Your Radio with its listeners and advertisers, to emphasise the localness, to reinforce the sense of community.
"And I don't want to do formatted shows. I want the presenters to have personality, to play, for example, sunshine-related records on a sunny day."
She sips her coffee and smiles. She knows the success won't come at the twitch of a nose.
"The job is all about belief, and passion," she says. "When I started with Clyde it was easy to sell the station to advertisers because I had a real passion for it. But that passion fell away as it changed. I needed a new passion, and now I have my chance to create a fantastic radio station."
To weave some magic?
"I hope so," she says, smiling.
