Beginning at the 2010 National League Championship Series, the NFL on Fox theme became the official theme music for all Fox Sports broadcasts, regardless of sport. However, the network later began to backpedal from this standardization , and discontinued the use of the NFL theme music on non-football broadcasts entirely in 2020. After the 2006 NFL season, Fox NFL Sunday returned to the Los Angeles studio throughout the entire 2007 regular season and for the two weeks of that year’s postseason. Curt Menefee became the full-time host of the pregame show, while Joe Buck reverted to strictly handling play-by-play duties.

Second, middle class families incorporated more music into their households for personal entertainment.

Sadly, traditional musical composition became largely uninteresting to society as self-indulgent amateurs captivated the masses. I respect the effort that went into putting this extensive book together, including locating numerous open source images and diagrams. I value the contribution that the authors have made in providing a no-cost alternative to commercially published texts.
In their place rose melodies with angular shapes, wide leaps, and unusual phrase structures. In some cases, melody lost its status as the most prominent feature of music altogether, with pieces that featured texture or rhythm above all else. Chestra pit, and its huge backstage area allowed for some of the most elaborate sets of Wagner’s day.

The rest of the world’s music is primarily confined to a short appendix . Concentrating on the West is not an issue in itself, but a more appropriate and accurate book title would have made this focus explicit. This text would have benefited from greater discussion of why the book concentrates on Western music, even by means of discussing what makes Western music distinct. Accompanying issues of cultural appropriation would have made this text more relevant to contemporary issues around the politics of music. Indeed, the controversial and political dynamics of music would be an excellent way of engaging today’s undergraduates.
