The Library of Congress has launched a very exciting initiative partnered with Sony: The National Jukebox. Here's a little history on the project:
"The Library of Congress presents the National Jukebox, which makes historical sound recordings available to the public free of charge. The Jukebox includes recordings from the extraordinary collections of the Library of Congress Packard Campus for Audio Visual Conservation and other contributing libraries and archives. Recordings in the Jukebox were issued on record labels now owned by Sony Music Entertainment, which has granted the Library of Congress a gratis license to stream acoustical recordings.
So how's that for a start to the work week? Be sure to check out the National Jukebox and make a playlist. This is an incredible resource that has been made available for everyone to use!
