When I was a kid, this was a treasured item in our house hold. This is essentially an album of a radio documentary broadcast on WMCA radio in New York as a tribute to JFK shortly after the assassination. Substantial segments of his speeeches and interviwes are provided with good narration to tie it all together.

As a child born exactly one year, one month, one day, and one hour (December 23, 1964) after JFK's murder, my father would occasionally play this on the stereo at home and this turned me on to JFK. Even at that age, I somehow understood the challenge of his inauguration, the call to put men on the moon, the urging for peace in 63, and the Civil Rights speech in particular spoke to me then and sends chills up my spine today.

Only complaint-this needs to be on CD. Use this to teach the younguns about JFK.

Silver-toned Ed Brown's 50 year news reporting career included stints at WMCA-570 AM and WNEW-1130 AM in NYC and for the RKO and NBC radio networks. He retired in 1997 after some years at WCHL-1360, in Chapel Hill, NC.

Founded in 1925 as a 5,000 watt station at the top of the AM dial, by 1960 WMCA adopted their successful "Good Guys" Top 40 format. Despite competition from 50,000 watt clear channel WABC-770, 'MCA was NYC's ratings champ from 1963 through '66. By 1970, they transitioned to an all talk format called "Dial-Log Radio."

NYC's PREMIER ALBUMS was founded in 1959 as a budget operation with such labels as CORONET and SPIN-O-RAMA. In 1965, Premier bought out Philly-based CAMEO/PARKWAY. Their JOHN FITZGERALD KENNEDY - A MEMORIAL ALBUM (#2099) is fine-quality: a substantial disc with good audio. The record reproduces in full a one-hour show narrated by Brown and broadcast over WMCA on the day of JFK's murder, 11/22/63. All but two speeches selected are excerpts.

The LP's back cover has the memorial service eulogy given by Cardinal Richard Cushing of Massachusetts, and the lying in state remarks of House Speaker John McCormack (of Boston), Chief Justice Earl Warren (former Gov. of CA.) and Senate Majority Leader Mike Mansfield (of MT.). Mansfield's comments were briefest, but also the most moving:

"There was a sound of laughter; in a moment, it
was no more. And so she took a ring from her finger
and placed it in his hands.
There was a husband who asked much and gave much,
and out of the giving and the asking wove with a
woman what could not be broken in life, and in a
moment it was no more. And so she took a ring from
her finger and placed it in his hands, and kissed him
and closed the lid of a coffin.

Received product faster than expected and product was in apparently very good condition though I haven't yet played the record which is why I rated the product okay (neutral). Amazon's service was Excellent as it usually is. Lewis R. Brown
