 May 2012Music and media mused in new book
A book exploring the history of popular music in the media through interviews
with some of the country‟s most prominent music journalists and practitioners,
including former Smash Hits, Q and Mojo editor, Mark Ellen, has beenpublished this month by a Leeds Metropolitan University academic.
„Media and Popular Music‟ is
D
r Peter Mills‟s second book, following on fromthe success of his 2010 book, „Hymns to the Silence: Inside the Words andMusic of Van Morrison‟.
 
„Media and Popular Music‟ explores the cros
s-over between pop music andthe media, including chapters on print journalism, radio, television,
advertising, new media and independent labels. Each chapter‟s historical
setting is followed by an in-depth interview with a notable practitionerincluding
Mark Cooper, producer of Later…with Jools Holland and CEO of 
Music Entertainment at the BBC; Ben Watt, half of Everything But The Girland owner of independent label Buzzin' Fly, the famous Rusby family behind
the career of Kate Rusby, and BBC Radio Leeds‟
s James Addyman.Through these interviews, theory and practice are measured against eachother and the book uses their experiences and observations to explore theways that popular music is produced, marketed and mediated.Dr
Mills commented: “This is a
very readable book primarily, but notexclusively, for students, containing a unique balance of theoretical andhistorical material alongside original, extended and candid interviews with
 
successful people working in the music marketplace. This sets it apart fromother text books whilst containing easy-to-use references to other useful
books for students.”
 The book forms part of the Edinburgh Univers
ity Press‟s Media topics series
which also includes Media Ethics and Social Change and Media and Memory.
