We’ve sort of missed this, but earlier this week the Library of Congress launched the National Jukebox, a web site that streams more than 10,000 pre-1925 songs from the Sony-controlled Victor record label. The label owns the rights to tons of blues, jazz, folk, gospel and other styles popular in the early 20th century, which is apparently something people have been hankering for. According to LA Times, the site has racked up 250,000 streams and one million page views since its launch. Basically, this is our way of saying go out and peep this stuff.
