From the first audio recordings to the latest digital gadgetry, rock musicologst Brian Appleton examines how the microphone changed music forever, and explains why, if sound travelled at the speed of light, man would have evolved with only one ear on the top of his head.
|01||04||Now Let's Listen To Light||20050622||20061207|
After looking at sound last week, Brian attempts to follow through by Listening to Light.
But is that plausible or should he just look at sound again? After all, listening to light seems uncomfortably close to the discipline of laboratory physics and he doesn't have the pre-requisite white coat.
Surprisingly, Brian finds himself official! Yes, the college principal has re-instated him, with the proviso that he doesn't talk about rock music.
Instead he has to deliver a lecture on the last Norman King of England, King Steve.
Or does he?

After years of humiliation, Brian can take no more so decides to take revenge on his fellow rockers by exposing their mistakes, fluffs and bum notes.
