Oh boy that Goebbels. What a fun guy!
Some neat stuff here about Nazi propaganda especially the speeches of Joseph Goebbels. They include one about "Radio as the Eighth Great Power", and "America, What Does It Want?" The latter describes an American press unlike any we know today. And, don't miss "The Year 2000."
My favorite was "The Good Companion" in which Goebbels discusses German radio policy.
""We also want to speak openly about the question of whether the German radio should broadcast so-called jazz music. We can flatly reject jazz, if by it one understands a kind of music that entirely ignores or mocks melody and depends only on rhythm, and in which the rhythm is carried primarily by unpleasant sounding instrumental squawks that pain the ear. This so-called music is despicable, because it is really not music at all, rather only a talentless, random playing with tones. ""
Too bad he never got to hear Miles Davis' Sketches of Spain which is based on Rodrigo's "Concerto De Aranjuez for Guitar and Orchestra and one of the most beautiful pieces of music of any sort ever.
