pitch perfect

this series was an eye-opening listen. its investigation into difference musics and the relation they have with popular culture and politics was illuminating and extremely interesting. One of the most enthralling was Leave me alone: not only the gender politics but also discovering Calypso Rose . The series was well-written and produced: essays in oral form. I hope there is a second series.

Music Makes the World Go 'round

Interesting, and fun to hear about various cuktural, and societal, influences through music. My favourite episode was "Home;" A tale about how a small music club formed a band and brought such notoriety to an underprivileged school.
