Here at the Recorded Sound Archives, we listen to A LOT of music, while digitizing and scanning recordings for research.

With the library being closed, we’ve had to get a little creative in how our department works since we’re so dependent on the physical recordings. So we’ve been working hard behind the scenes doing quality control on recordings and meta data since we haven’t been recording as much these days.

This week, we wanted to start by sharing and highlighting some RSA Staff’s Favorite Eddy Duchin Songs!

Check out the list below and let us know some of your favorites.

Whether you celebrate Chanukah or Christmas, here at the Recorded Sound Archives we’ve got you covered.

You can listen to the story of Chanukah, or have you ever wonder how Christmas is celebrated in Israel? Discover how both Christmas and Chanukah are celebrated in Israel in the late 50s and 60s. Along with Christmas hymns such as Oh, Come All Ye Faithful and Silent Night, Holy Night or silly songs like I want a hippopotamus for Christmas and All I want for Christmas is my Two Front Teeth.

We even have a few Hanukkah sing-alongs (Volume 2, Volume 3) for you to sing-a-long and enjoy with children. Or perhaps you’re looking for a modern take on some old Chanukah classics, discover Kenny Ellis Hanukkah Swings.

With over 100 recordings for you to choose from between our Chanukah and Christmas collections, the Recorded Sound Archives staff has put together a list of our favorite songs for you to listen to with family and friends.
