New: Non-Stop Online "Streaming" Music from Southern Folklife Collection at the Wilson Library, U. of North Carolina

Streaming audio from a library collection that includes music. Very cool idea.

From a Blog Post:

Music selections from archival audio collections at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill are now being streamed online.

Visitors to the Web site of the Southern Folklife Collection can tune in to channels (aka SFC Radio) that feature music in five genres: old-time music; country and bluegrass; folk revival; rhythm, blues, and boogie; and the eclectic “SFC Mix.”

“The goal of the radio project is to open our holdings through an informal medium,” said Steve Weiss, head of the Collection. “This is a way to share the collection with a worldwide community of students, researchers, and interested listeners.”

The stream currently works best with iTunes or Winamp media players.

The recordings are drawn from the nearly 200,000 sound recordings in the Southern Folklife Collection. The Collection opened in 1989 as an archival repository and center for the study of all forms of Southern musical and oral traditions.
