The Library of Congress Adds a Jukebox

The Library of Congress has added a National Jukebox The jukebox is browsable and searchable by artist (with a short bio for each) and genre. According to the website,
"The National Jukebox debuts featuring more than 10,000 78rpm disc sides issued by the Victor Talking Machine Company between 1900 and 1925.

Imagine your computer as a new Gramophone purchased for family and friends to enjoy in your home parlor. Audition popular recorded selections of the beginning of the 20th century years—band music, novelty tunes, humorous monologues, hits from the season's new musical theater productions, the latest dance rhythms, and opera arias."
This little ditty about made me laugh!
