Conference Proceeding: Di Grine Kuzine and Green Label Columbias

This presentation will provide an overview of recordings from the first decades of the 20th century that were directed at the Jewish market in the United States. From the beginning of the century, record companies, both large and small, produced music and spoken word recordings intended for Jewish immigrants, in Yiddish, Hebrew, and English. Many of these recordings may be heard through the internet, on the Library of Congress National Jukebox website and on websites of other institutions. We will look at, and listen to, these websites and examine the broad range of content to be heard on the records.
