CARONE, Iray. Adorno and the musical education through radio broadcasts. Educ. Soc. [online]. 2003, vol.24, n.83, pp.477-493. ISSN 0101-7330.

This paper is an exposition of the analytical study of The Music Appreciation Hour, a weekly classical music program of the National Broadcasting Company directed to children and young students, that Theodor W. Adorno carried out during his participation in the Princeton Radio Research Project (1938-1941). This study comprises two parts: in the first one, Adorno analyzed the musical pedagogy of the program, while in the second one, he pointed out the cultural implications of the program that, despite its non commercial character and nbc support, carried all the marks of the entertainment industry.

Keywords : Theodor W. Adorno; Music appreciation; Entertainment industry; Princeton Project.
