Music Journalism History

Music Journalism History is written and administered by Don Armstrong, a freelance academic writer whose idea of a great time is tracking down a rare book or magazine in order to read, say, a 1964 review of 'The Ostrich' by the Primitives. MJH documents and analyzes the evolution of popular music journalism from the advent of sound recording through the era of streaming.
