National Recording Registry Class Produces Ultimate 'Stay at Home' Playlist. OK, it's not actually a playable playlist of links - it's a list of the 25 audio recordings selected today by the National Recording Registry of the Library of Congress as the "Class of 2019" worthy of preservation due to their "cultural, historical and aesthetic importance to the nation’s recorded sound heritage."
"The gentle sounds of “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood”; Russ Hodges’ thrilling play-by-play of the National League tiebreaker between the New York Giants and the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1951; the Village People’s international dance anthem, “Y.M.C.A.”; “Cheap Trick at Budokan”; and the original 1964 Broadway cast recording of “Fiddler on the Roof” are among the newest recordings inducted into the National Recording Registry of the Library of Congress."

"These things are culturally essential. They can also be obliterated or locked away by single persons."

Copyright badly needs to be reformed. We're not going to forget about Dre if The Chronic enters the public domain after 28 years.
