Archive for November 2013

In the aftermath of the Kennedy assassination, commemorative record albums were rushed out, mostly containing speeches and biographical content. But the one record album that serves as a document of the Four Days That Shocked The World was released in late 1963 by Columbia Pictures subsidiary ColPix records. The album collected actual sound from UPI Audio News and Dallas stations KBOX, KLIF and WFAA. The narration is by Reid Collins of WNEW Radio News in New York.
