  • Sep. 15th, 4:30 PM to 5:30 PM: UD Library presents Professor Ben Yagoda
    @ Morris Library Reading Room:
    Professor Yagoda will speak about his recent book, The B-Side: The Death of Tin Pan Alley and the Rebirth of the Great American Song. The book provides information on broad musical trends through a series of intertwined stories about the songwriters and artists of the day. The B-Side also explores the cultural, social and economic changes that led to the decline of the Great American Songbook and the ascendancy of rock as the standard for the American pop song. Michael Feinstein wrote in The New York Times that The B-Side is a “welcome and eloquent chronicle of the popular song, putting it in proper perspective by offering a panoramic history of what happened to music in the last century.” This event is open to the public. A reception will follow.
