National Recording Registry “Like a National iPod”

Did you happen to catch the “CBS Evening News” last night?  They featured the latest audio recordings the Library has added to the National Recording Registry, which features everything from Jiminy Cricket and Little Richard to Loretta Lynn, Willie Nelson, Tupac Shakur and a World War II battle.

As Katie Couric might say, Anthony Mason has the story.

As the story mentions, while the Librarian of Congress makes the final selection, anybody can nominate a recording. The criteria and instructions can be found here.

(The headline refers to a line in Mason’s story.)
