Question Audio Jack Switch - How to?

This will be a first attempt at an audio project - a very simple project I expect. I have not been able to find what I am after in any electronics store or any how to details on the net.

I wish to build a switch box where two 3.5mm input stereo audio jack sockets can be switched to a single stereo jack plug. The attached image of an 'Adaptor 3.5mm 2 x Stereo Socket to Stereo Plug' is what I want but with a switch (?rotary or preferably a push in switch) that allows one to choose one or other of the socket inputs.

Thank you.

Simply add a DPDT switch to switch the output between the inputs.

Thanks for your reply. Two questions. Does the DPDT only come as a rotary switch? Do the ground wires need only to be twisted together, ie they are not wired to a pole on the switch?

The toggle versions are actually more common. And the ground is unswitched.
