National Jukebox debuts!

Following up on our recent post about the Library of Congress and it's sound recording collection we are happy to report that the United States now has a "national jukebox."

According to the site, "...the Jukebox includes more than 10,000 recordings made by the Victor Talking Machine Company between 1901 and 1925. Jukebox content will be increased regularly, with additional Victor recordings and acoustically recorded titles made by other Sony-owned U.S. labels, including Columbia, OKeh, and others." The collection is more than just music though, it also includes speeches, comedy skits and more!
