Interesting original presentation

I thought it was quite entertaining. It’s no masterpiece, and I was happy it was free, but I quite enjoyed it.

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.

Diverse but Consistently Interesting

This is fascinating stuff, everything from Cornish pop music to how a singer and her music came crashing into 1950s American identity politics. The stories were all interesting, extremely diverse and if it did nothing else it taught me just how little I know about the world's music. One of my favourites, even though some of the journalism in it came across as a little condescending, covered how French government attempts to protect traditional French music actually led to a massive explosion of the country's hip hop scene. I'd recommend this to anyone interested in stories about world music, some of its big personalities and how music has helped shape our world.
