UWM Presents A Tribute to 1920's Blues

By Russ Bickerstaff
In undergraduate school, I took a course in the history of pop music. It’s kind of surprising that courses like that aren’t closer to the core of a standard liberal arts education. An understanding of the history of contemporary pop gives one a really interesting perspective on what’s going on in the world of contemporary pop culture—makes for a much more literate graduate.
