Frank Sinatra performing

The Performers

More than a century’s worth of singers, dancers, and performers who sang the songs in burlesque, vaudeville, the Broadway stage, on radio and television, in films, and on records. Here you can look and listen to these wonderful artists in rare appearances, re-recordings, soundtracks, Broadway cast recordings, home recordings, demos, and radio performances. We’ve also provided a healthy dose of videos from studio shorts and features, television appearances, newly discovered home movies, Soundies, and even military films.

They’re all here, the singers, bands, and instrumentalists who interpreted the American Popular Song to generations of Americans.
