The voices of Glenn Miller (A&S ex’26), Louis Armstrong, Tommy Dorsey and Count Basie are a few of the dozens of musicians whose recordings have a permanent home at CU.

The university acquired the Ed Burke Collection earlier this semester as part of the Glenn Miller Archive at CU’s American Music Research Center. One of the world’s most significant collections of Big Band era recordings and memorabilia, it contains 1,400 reel-to-reel tapes with live radio programs featuring virtually every musician of major importance between 1930-60.
