There are undercurrents and peripheral taste preferences that are a defining part of our individual and collective cultural experience. Music is no exception. Professor George Plasketes adapts the iconic 'A-side/B-side' dichotomy from the 45 r.p.m. for use as a unique conceptual, critical, historical, and cultural framework for exploring and threading together a variety of popular music and media texts.
