If music be the food of love...

The Beatles have been a staple of the young and young at heart for more than 40 years, and a new album, The Beatles 1, with an associated interactive Web site, indicate that all things old are new again. On today’s audiostream, rock fan Jonathan Plucker, who teaches learning, cognition and instruction at the IU School of Education and is a recent recipient of a Mensa Education and Research Foundation prize for research related to human intelligence, chats with rock historian Glenn Gass. Gass, who is a composer, wrote the textbook A History of Rock Music and originated the nation’s first for-credit history of rock ‘n roll class at the IU School of Music. How does pop music have the power to convey emotion, express the inexplicable and defy time? Listen to this conversational duet and find out.
