DRAM, a product of the educational foundation Anthology of Recorded Music, Inc., is a streaming audio database whose mission is to preserve and disseminate musical recordings based upon their aesthetic and historical value, which are largely ignored by the commercial marketplace.

The collection in total numbers more than 4,000 albums from 42 independent labels and archives, and includes folk music, opera, Native American music, jazz, nineteenth-century classical to early rock, musical theater, contemporary music, electronic, and beyond. While the primary intended audience is music scholars, students, composers, and music aficionados, DRAM includes materials useful to American history, sociology, and cultural studies students.
