Today the Library of Congress and Sony Music Entertainment announced the launch of what’s being billed as “the largest collection of historical recordings ever made publicly available online.”
The new website provides access to more than 10-thousand historical recordings for free on a streaming-only basis – no downloads. It covers the first quarter of the twentieth century and includes music, poetry, political speeches and other spoken word recordings.
And finally, this year’s Ping-O-Ween mix, the dreaded sequel to the cult classic, it’s Bride of Ping-O-Ween! Assembled from the wails of the damned, Chris Haley and myself have crafted another set of spine-tingling tracks.
Thrill to tunes of deepest despair! Chill to songs of terror and torment! Spill to … well, don’t spill. Nobody likes a mess.
You can download it here. Happy Halloween, boys and ghouls.

The Mixtape Club is an organization dedicated to the art of the mixtape. Ten people, ten tracks, ten album covers:"To me, making a tape is like writing a letter — there’s a lot of erasing and rethinking and starting again. A good compilation tape, like breaking up, is hard to do. You’ve got to kick off with a corker, to hold the attention … and then you’ve got to up it a notch, or cool it a notch, and you can’t have white music and black music together, unless the white music sounds like black music, and you can’t have two tracks by the same artist side by side, unless you’ve done the whole thing in pairs and … oh, there are loads of rules." [via Hornby]
But as Sarah Vowell so frankly puts it:"Making a mix tape isn’t like writing a letter, it’s like having a job. …. I can make a tape of “I Believe in Miracles” but I cannot perform miracles."
Either way, a top five list, noticeably absent.
