Album Club Goes Virtual with Rumors of Fleetwood Mac

The pandemic is not stopping Album Club from meeting, even if it is having to meet remotely. Bob Santellis, Oregon State University’s Director of Popular Music and Performing Arts, will be hosting the virtual Album Club on Monday, Jan. 11, at 7:00 p.m.to discuss Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours. 

Album Club is free and open to all, sponsored by the Popular Music Studies program at OSU’s College of Liberal Arts, but anyone who wishes to attend must register ahead of time. 

“Constant advances in technology and the way we consume music on mobile devices through apps and streaming services might make you think the record album as an art form is extinct, but that’s not true,” Santelli told OSU Newsroom. “Album Club brings together students and seniors and people of ages in between, because music is a common language and these classic rock and pop albums sustain their relevance and popularity across generations.” 

 Rumours, making it the 11th best-selling album of all time, worldwide. 

[BTW: It is perfectly all right to talk about Album Club.]
