National Jukebox

Do you like Tin Pan Alley? Ragtime? Victrola 78s?

The U.S. Library of Congress now offers historic recordings free to the public online at the National Jukebox.

You can even make and share playlists. I found four recordings of Chinese opera recorded in Philadelphia in 1903 (!)
Dedicated to intercultural collaboration, Byron Au Yong composes songs of dislocation, music for a changing world. He teaches in Performing Arts & Social Justice at the University of San Francisco.
