Telinga makes a "Y" cable that takes two mono mini-jack inputs (such as 
from two mono mics) and sends the signals out to the two channels of a 
single stereo mini-jack. The cost is $32.50 USD, available from me. This 
cable is built to last, nicely made and finished.

Alternatively you can make such a cable with radio shack parts.
