Sources of American Music

Presentation by Ed Goldberg of radio station 89.9 FM. Music is older than civilization, but civilization has shaped it from its rough roots. Goldberg discusses Africa and Europe as the sources of modern music and how ragtime, string band, operetta, and American music evolved. What we call classical music came from church and folk musics. Ed Goldberg was born in the Bronx in 1943. He has a longstanding interest in music and he has been a journalist and commentator on jazz and theater as well.
