Tylko Rock (Only Rock) 1991-2002Tylko Rock is the first magazine that was covered by complementary, thorough research in media studies. A monthly magazine for over a decade (1991-2002), it gained a unique position because it combined many years of experience and history of Polish journalism and (rock) music press with a new model, which began to crystallize during the transition period, since 1989. In addition, the analysis also allows to formulate some conclusions about the current (and future) position of this press segment. Journal editors tried to keep the title at the appropriate editorial and content level. In the view of the author, this article had to fulfil three basic tasks. First, to disseminate the results of research conducted by the author for several years. Secondly, it was about the methodological and substantive enrichment of the new area (subdiscipline) of scientific exploration and cognitive interests, initiated and successfully developed by the author, which in Poland have neither in the Polish People’s Republic, nor in the Third Republic, been yet implemented, that is in the field of music journalism. Finally, the author’s intention was to introduce the most important and most interesting rock magazine in Poland (certainly after 1989) to a wider audience.
