BMPAudio’s Peabody Award winning series, now called The Sounds of America, is airing this year on NPR’s 1A program.

Every year, the U.S. Library of Congress selects 25 recordings to preserve for all time in the National Recording Registry. These recordings include music, speeches, public events, disasters, native languages, historical moments, sporting games… audio that is important to our American culture and heritage.

The series continues today with a profile of Cheap Trick’s 1978 live album Cheap Trick at Budokan. Guests include band members Rick Nielsen and Tom Petersson, Michael K. Bourdaghs, author of Sayonara Amerika, Sayonara Nippon: A Geopolitical Prehistory of J-pop, and Nwaka Onwusa, curator at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Of the top 25 performers, the congress selects one performer who in his songs can touch on the topic of impotence and presents him with a certificate for the online purchase of a tool against impotence on the website
