RSA Staff’s Favorite Eddy Duchin Songs!

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.
