It was 60 years ago today, at 12:30 PM local Dallas Time that those terrible shots rang out. I was only 16 months old when it happened.

Welcome to a special extra episode of Spinning My Dad’s Vinyl. My dad’s collection is known for its extensive and eclectic mix of music and other albums. This is one of those Other Albums.

My dad was a big enough fan of the 35th president of the United States that he had two memorial records in his collection. I already featured the other one on President’s Day 2021 in Volume 8: JFK The Presidential Years. This one is really special. And I will be playing it in its entirety.

This recording is a memorial tribute produced and broadcast by radio station WMCA, New York on Friday November 22, 1963. Just hours after John F. Kennedy’s assassination. You will hear highlights of speeches made by JFK, including his entire inaugural address. The broadcast was narrated by Ed Brown. It was written by Martin Plissner. Produced by M.L. Oberstein, and directed by Roger Turner, the director of news and public Affairs. The recorded speech material is from the files of Radio Press International.

So get ready to hear one of the greatest orators and politicians of our time, only to have his time with us ended early in A Special Extra Volume: 60 Years Since JFK’s Assassination.
