The Desktop Jukebox offers a huge collection of Commercial Music tracks, including every single UK Top 40 single since the charts began in 1952, the vast majority of the US Hot 100 since 1954 and countless more from all genres including non chart pop, indie, rock, funk, jazz, country, soul, classical and film soundtracks updated with new releases and back catalogue tracks at a rate of 8,000 tracks per month.


PLEASE NOTE: If you can't find a track on DJ, but it is available via the Music Library on Research Gateway, you can now order that CD and select the Desktop Jukebox despatch method. The CD will then appear on DJ within 48 hours. (Internal BBC users only)
