The Sounds Of America: A Thanksgiving Special

The National Recording Registry contains clips of iconic moments from music, news, theater and sports.
The National Recording Registry contains clips of iconic moments from music, news, theater and sports.

On this Thanksgiving, we’re celebrating American audio heritage with recordings selected by the Library of Congress to preserve forever in the National Recording Registry. These recordings were chosen for their historic, aesthetic or cultural importance to American society.

Find our other shows from our ‘Sounds of America’ series here.

We’re starting with “Alice’s Restaurant.” Then, you’ll meet Sly and the Family Stone, the Wild Tchoupitoulas and the First Family. And for dessert, we’re eating “American Pie.”

This special was produced by Ben Manilla and Jennie Cataldo for BMP Audio in association with the National Recording Registry at the Library of Congress.
