(p.1) Introduction
Music and the Broadcast Experience

Christina L. Baade

Oxford University Press

The introduction contextualizes the volume chapters by providing a historical and theoretical framework for understanding how music and broadcasting intersect. An introductory section sets out the parameters of the collection and the topic’s significance. The first major section offers a genealogy of key terms that are used throughout the book: broadcasting (and postbroadcasting, including the impact of the Internet), mass media, and mediation, as well as the categories of popular music and classical music. It also considers the intersections of these concepts in the broadcasting of musical performances, events, and recordings. The section entitled Contexts offers accounts of how research on music in radio and television has developed up through the present. The introduction closes with Points of Contact, which briefly discusses five common threads running through music broadcasting that bring the chapters into contact with each other: production cultures, format/genre, music as commodity and as cultural practice, audiences/public/consumers, and liveness.

Keywords:   broadcasting, classical music, Internet, liveness, media, music, performance, popular music, radio, television
