8:00 The Nerve

Six programmes

(5) myTunes (Music & Identity)

Today, it seems, everyone has the opportunity to create their very own personal soundtrack to their lives. There's a very simple reason that the iPod starts with the letter "I". Jowi Taylor examines how music plays an integral part in everyone's identity, regardless of class, race, religion, education, gender, or sexuality. But wait - no, in fact, it's got everything to do with class, race, religion, education, gender and sexuality

Just how much power does music have to create a sense of "me" and "you", of "us" and "them"? How can songs written by other people be described as your tunes or my tunes? The Nerve declares its own musical identity (CBC)
