Our current episode is a media history of the compact disc.
2020 marks the 40th anniversary of the technical standard of this revolutionary music format. We talk to music scholar Eamonn Bell about how it was designed, how it works, and the influence it has had on the music industry, and even music itself, in the intervening decades.
This episode is presented in association with the Dublin Review of Books. We heartily recommend the drb to supporters of Field Day. In the words of Seamus Deane: “The drb sustains a level of commentary on Irish and international matters that no other journal in Ireland and few elsewhere can reach.”
