Your musical tastes are an important way to set you apart from the world. “We take music personally”. On this episode of Inquiry, we talk with writer and editor KELEFA SANNEH. He spent six years as a pop-music critic at the New York Times and is now a New Yorker staff writer. His new book is a “must-read” for anyone passionate about their music: MAJOR LABELS: A HISTORY OF POPULAR MUSIC IN SEVEN GENRES: ROCK-R&B-COUNTRY-PUNK-HIP-HOP-DANCE-POP.
