PostRe: Magdalen College and Sir Paul McCartney (Anthony Smith, UK) (John Eipper, USA, 10/03/06 1:32 pm)
I wrongly assumed that Sir Paul McCartney wrote IT music. Anthony Smith writes: IOt is far, very far, from being IT music. It is simply that Sir Paul uses modern IT devices to help him compose the music ie write music physically as you use a PC to write text. He writes traditional melodies, not electronic music and beautiful they are. Yes, he was a chorister for a time as a child at Liverpool RC Cathedral. I met him during the 1960s but did not get to know him until "Ecce Cor Meum" was a possibility. But I knew his brother Michael, also a good musician and song composer, who appeared many times on TV programmes I produced in the late 1960s.
RH: Before becoming president of Magdalen College, Anthony was was BBC TV Current Afairs producer, and thus became nationally known.. He has published widely on current affairs. His books include The Shadow in the Cave, British Broadcasting, The British Press Since the War, Subsidies and the Press in Europe, The Politics if Information, Television and Political Life, The Newspaper,an International History, Newspapers and Democracy, Goodbye Gutenberg--the Newspaper evolution in the 1980s,, The Geopolitics of Information The Age of the Behemoths, I mention this because it is an ideal background for a WAISer.
