Again and again the nexus between pop music and religion arose discussions, whether in regard to the origins of music genres, the shows of pop divas, or the fandom which often seems to be religiously inspired. However, many discussions in regard to this topic remain in the realm of vast but highly speculative associations even though an academic research exists.
Tonight and tomorrow night, one of Germany's biggest radio station the WDR will cover this topic on air. The two CERES experts Dr. Licia Di Giacinto and Dr. Tim Karis have been interviewed on religion and pop for the radio show "Plan B" and trying to dig deeper. The interview as well as the entire show is in German only.
