What is the National Jukebox?


by / May 13, 2011

Answer: One of the newest additions to the Library of Congress. The National Jukebox "makes historical sound recordings available to the public free of charge." A joint effort among the library, Sony Music Entertainment, the University of California, Santa Barbara, and EMI Music, "the Jukebox includes more than 10,000 recordings made by the Victor Talking Machine Company between 1901 and 1925." Have a listen at http://www.loc.gov/jukebox/.
