The Recorded Sound Archives (RSA) is a unit of FAU Libraries Special Collections department. We are located in the Wimberly Library on FAU's Boca Raton campus.

Originally established in 2002 as a small project dedicated to the preservation of recorded Jewish music, it has matured into a robust digitization operation for all types of sound recordings.

Notes The name Fraydele Oysher has become synonymous with musical excitement. Be it a liturgical chant, a theatre song, or a typical Yiddish folk song, listeners have the feeling they are hearing it for the first time. Her daughter, Marilyn Michaels, refers to herself as having been “born in a trunk” as they traveled extensively on the entertainment circuit. On this special recording, mother and daughter perform some of their favorite Yiddish songs together.

Recordings restricted by copyright will only play 45 seconds to give you a sense of what that recording originally sounded like. These recordings can be identified by the words (Research Station) in the music player.
