Descriptive Entry:
This accession consists of audio and video elements created during the production of the radio series "Memphis: Cradle of Rock and Soul" and videos for the exhibition "Rock 'n' Soul: Social Crossroads."

"Memphis: Cradle of Rock and Soul" is a 13-part radio documentary featuring oral histories and music from the National Museum of American History's collection of recordings. The programs were narrated by Cybill Shepherd and aired in the fall of 2000.

"Rock 'n' Soul: Social Crossroads" was jointly produced by the National Museum of American History and the Memphis Rock 'n' Soul Museum and permanently resides in Memphis. The exhibition, which opened in 2000, traces the emergence of rock and roll and rhythm and blues music in Memphis from 1930-1975, from its rural traditions and working class influences. Smithsonian Productions produced a number of videos for use in this exhibition.

Much of the material in this collection consists of interviews and recordings of musicians on DAT or 3/4" U-matic videotape. Materials also include interviews of historians, voiceovers, rough cuts, and final cuts.

Restrictions pertaining to the use of these materials may apply (based on contracts/copyright). Access restrictions may also apply if viewing/listening copies are not currently available. Viewing/listening copies can be made for a fee. Contact reference staff for details.

Descriptive Entry:
This accession consists of audiotapes created during the production of a number of radio specials titled "American Roots" and a proposed radio program titled "American Routes." Both programs featured traditional and contemporary music from across the country and were hosted by Nicholas R. Spitzer. There were multiple "American Roots" specials that were aired on several national patriotic holidays. Recordings of concerts at Wolf Trap Foundation for the Performing Arts were used in these programs and some of the source material was also used in the radio series "Folk Masters from the Barns of Wolf Trap." "American Routes" was never fully produced. It had a similar theme to "American Roots," but used recordings from a variety of sources. Materials include original recordings, safety copies, interviews, and demos.
