Music transmission began the moment mankind created music. For a very long period of historical development, humans could only transmit music by means of musical performance and oral instruction. There was a severe limitation to the extent of music preservation, as well as to the distance and directions of music transmission.
When mankind invented musical scores, music started to break away from the boundaries of being merely a performing art, and develop into a system of “written symbols” that can be recorded and spread. Undoubtedly, however, it was the scientists who should be crowned as the founders of the real revolutionary milestone of human musical communication. Scientists invented marvelous means of music transmission, from the earliest mechanical “record turntable” to today’s many kinds of “electronic media”. Music transmission has become something that is amazingly convenient, fast, and “hi-fi supported”!
Among the numerous means of music transmission of the 20th century, the creation and development of radio broadcast5ing played an extremely important role in the industry of music transmission. Nevertheless, the rapid development of high technology has brought serious challenges to China’s radio music workers in the new century. With the ever-increasing popularization o CDs, with the aggressive march of the stereophonic and digital musical TV, with…… and especially with the rapid expansion of the “almighty computer network” force, what else can be done on the part of the music broadcasting industry and music broadcasters of the new century.
