Daria A. Zhurkova


The article uses the examples from "Musical Ring" TV program to analyze changes that
took place in soviet society and on television in the era of Perestroika. The combination of music and discussion in the structure of the telecast is studied, as well as the features of the visual presentation of performers and the nature of communication around new musical genres are determined. The following three issues of the program are examined in detail: 1) Valery Leontiev, 2) "The Bravo" band with Zhanna Aguzarova as bandleader, and 3) the rock groups from Moscow and Leningrad (in particular, "The Sounds of Mu" with Peter Mamonov).
