Deminski and Doyle listeners suggest recordings for Library of Congress to preserve
In a press release sent out earlier today, Librarian of Congress James H. Billington named 25 new sound recordings to the registry that have been recognized for their cultural, artistic and/or historical significance to American society and the nation’s audio legacy.
Some of the standout sound recordings added include The Doors' self-titled debut album, The Righteous Brothers' "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'" and radio coverage of the 1945 funeral of President Franklin D. Roosevelt.
During the 2 pm hour of Wednesday's show, Deminski & Doyle wanted to know which recordings you thought should be preserved by the Library of Congress. Here are some of the suggestions our callers gave us.

Tom in Lakehurst: "Bridge Over Troubled Water" by Simon and Garfunkle.
Lauren in Cherry Hill: "Smells Like Teen Spirit" by Nirvana.
