Collecting and Archiving All 50 State Songs

Each segment of the Slate and Day to Day series on so-called "swing" states in this year's election kicks off with each state's official song. Those songs would be all but impossible to find if not for the work of Jeff Brown, who has collected or commissioned recordings of all 50 states songs. He shares some of his discoveries with NPR's Alex Chadwick.
