Supposing we have us a Little Tune Here
This chapter sets out the book’s purpose, which is to explore how Southerners during the period between the mid-1920s and World War II thought about folksongs and phonograph records, and how oral tradition bearers navigated a mass medium. How did people accustomed to communicating musically in face-to-face settings learn to interact with an electronic medium and, through it, with one another? How did such a community experience records as musical events, comparable, say, to a mother lulling a child to sleep or a noisy house party?
