Episode 5: Popular Music

As a UNESCO City of Music, and home to the Institute of Popular Music, Liverpool is a city with music at its heart.

Exploring cultural phenomena from The Fab Four to Taylor Swift, in this episode we look at the research taking place around popular music. What can we learn from the many different perspectives of popular music? How has it changed society in the past, and how will the music industry evolve in the future? Gavin Freeborn is joined by Dr Holly Tessler and Dr Mike Jones, as well as Dr Amy Skjerseth and Dr Samuel Murray, from the University of Liverpool’s Department of Music and Institute of Popular Music.
