A recent study reveals even recently made digital recordings are at risk of being lost!  Newer optical recordings like CD’s and DVD’s can start to lose their data as early as 3-5 years, while older magnetic tape has lasted over a century.  Others such as recordings from Duke Ellington and Bing Crosby have already been lost.  It takes a lot of money to preserve these recordings and without financial incentive historical recordings are being lost at an increasing rate.  Congress is even getting in on the act with a preservation law.
