Discussion 1.2: Your Perspective
Let’s figure out how images and sound in the media have changed the cultural landscape of values in society over the years. In this post, evaluate converging media as highlighted in Chapter 5. Below are some questions to consider:
The 1950s brought rock and roll into the American music scene. As a generalization, how do you think the “older” generations–at that time–may have reacted differently than the younger generations?
Think about how record albums seemed like such a marvel when they were invented! Do you think that when CDs were created that music listeners were equally as awed? Explain. And what about the advent of the iPod? How is the evolution of music formats affecting listeners? How is it affecting you?
How did radio shift the American culture during its beginning years and prior to the advent of TV?
If you owned your own radio station, how would you design your programs? What would your content style be? Who would your audience be? How would you cater to their interests?
Your initial post (approximately 200-250 words) should address each question in the discussion directions and is due by 11:59 PM Central Time on Wednesday.
Your two response posts (approximately 125-150 words each) are due by 11:59 PM Central Time on Sunday.
