Just for the Love of It, Popular Music in Penang celebrates the musicians and bands who are such a part of Penang’s rich musical heritage and highlights how this music has been so integrally woven into the wider tapestry of Penang’s growth. It tells of the factors that influenced the popularisation of music in the 1930s to 1960s, including the role of radio, cinema, TV, venues, commerce and fashions. Vibrantly illustrated, beautifully designed with a free CD, Just for the Love of It presents this fascinating story of Penang’s popular music in a creative, lively, and utterly engaging style.

The book is part of the on-going Penang Music Heritage Project, which was aimed at helping to reclaim, celebrate and document the huge richness of Penang’s musical heritage.
