What People are Saying About This

Carol Vernallis

“The first truly cross-cultural study of music video. Pegley lucidly demonstrates the ways the media conglomerates of MuchMusic and MTV solicit and instruct viewers, giving them varying ways of experiencing a body, a gender, an ethnicity and a national identity.”

"This should be required reading for anyone interested in the debates surrounding music television and youth identities within the field of popular music studies. A compelling and critical insight is provided into MuchMusic's unique contribution to popular culture within Canada."—Stan Hawkins, author of Settling the Pop Score
