    Default The Library of Congress - National Jukebox


    About the National Jukebox
    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.

    At launch, 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.

    Let us discuss the National Jukebox and share our playlists/favorite songs.

    I was reading about this project years back. How long has this been operational?

    They just started the streaming thing today. In fact, it barely started working for me a few minutes ago.

    EDIT: Er... Well, almost working. The playlist function isn't working for me.
