The Milken Archive of American Jewish Music (, founded in 1990 by Milken Family Foundation chair Lowell Milken, covers the entire range of Jewish musical expression in America in the context of the American Jewish experience. Over a three-year period, 50 CDs are being released, comprising more than 600 sacred and secular works, all newly recorded by outstanding artists.

Naxos Web Radio ( is an innovative web-casting concept offering more than 70 channels of high-quality music, mainly classical, but also Jazz/Blues, Nostalgia, Historical, World/Folk, New Age, Piano & Orchestral Pops, Film and Chinese music.

Each channel offers a specific category of music content streamed in near CD quality sound (64k) and FM quality sound (20k), and comes with a complete playlist allowing listeners to identify what is being played at any given time and what will be played next.

Naxos currently leads the way in digital streaming of classical music. In addition to Naxos Web Radio, Naxos also offers the Naxos Music Library (, a service that makes the entire Naxos catalogue - plus a number of other labels' recordings - available to over 500 institutions and 270 individual subscribers.

Naxos is a strong presence in the iTunes Music Store, with its CDs regularly appearing in the top ten albums for classical releases; its tracks are available on most digital service providers, including Real Network’s Rhapsody, MSN, and Napster. Earlier this month, eMusic and Naxos announced today that eMusic will be the first digital music service to offer Naxos’ entire 75,000 track catalog.
