The Music Library's latest exhibition, Sex, Satire, and Song, takes an incredible look inside the Broadway revue, revealing remarkable moments in the life of an iconic stage form which revolutionized the American musical in the 1920s, 30s, and 40s, and laid the foundation for such treasured television variety shows as “Saturday Night Live,” “Laugh-In,” and “The Carol Burnett Show.”

The Gilmore Music Library is pleased to announce that it is now providing significantly enhanced online streaming access to audiovisual materials in its Special Collections, including Historical Sound Recordings (HSR) and Oral History of American Music (OHAM).
