The National Jukebox

Published on: Thursday, May 12th, 2011

jukebox2Hey, this is pretty cool: the Library of Congress has released the National Jukebox, which provides free access to some vintage music from the LOC and other collections.  Users can browse or search by genre and artist, access, create, and submit playlists, etc.  The “Jukebox Day by Day” feature lets you see what was recorded each day of the year. 

Listen to a Sample Playlist.
