The popular musician gets the possibility for a great career and a way out of social nowhere. -<br /><br />3) The German Schlager (hit) has been discovered for politics in a process. There is a certain development from heavy ideological resentments to popular music devoted to the Fuehrer . Even German marching music and popular soldiers songs have been very much influenced by the civil Schlager . -<br /><br />4) There is a certain development from forbidding nigger jazz in German radio to accepting swing music and even supporting such kind of dancing music during the war. -<br /><br />5) Popular music in the German radio of the national socialist era has a special history. How did the famous Wunschkonzert work and how was the Wunschkonzert adapted to the needs of the war? How did the war changed the program?

Is it the perfect fit? Did Goebbels just take the popular music and used it for the purpose of propaganda? Or happens the adaptation of popular music by the national socialism in a not determined, process-related way? Is there a national socialist popular music or a popular music during the Third Reich? 2011-03-23T13:46:25Z Jockwer, Axel 2004 Unterhaltungsmusik im Dritten Reich Jockwer, Axel Popular Music in the Third Reich
