Monday... Secretary of State Dean Rusk and other State Department personnel went to both of Washington's commercial airports to personally greet foreign dignitaries. Some of the dignitaries that arrived on Sunday to attend the funeral included Soviet First Deputy Premier Anastas Mikoyan, French President Charles de Gaulle, Canadian Prime Minister Lester B. Pearson, The Duke of Edinburgh representing Queen Elizabeth II, British Prime Minister Sir Alec Douglas-Home, Irish President Éamon de Valera, and Ethiopian Emperor Haile Selassie. Queen Frederika of Greece, and King Baudouin I of the Belgians were just some of the other members of royalty attending. Some law enforcement officials, including MPDC Chief Robert V. Murray, later said that it was the biggest security nightmare they ever faced. The military formation will proceed down Pennsylvania Avenue past the White House and pause in the intersection of 17th and Pennsylvania. In the meantime, the caisson will have entered the North Gate and proceed to the North Portico followed by Mrs. Kennedy and the Attorney General. They will leave the automobile at this point and be joined by other dignitaries who will proceed with them on foot behind the caisson. The caisson will move forth and the procession will proceed to St. Matthew's via Connecticut Avenue. I was positioned, with 300 US Air Force personnel there. I was at the front on the church where I saw Jon Jon salute as I watched I thought this would be something to tell my grandchildren someday. I've counted seven different photographs of this scene of American history.
Richard Basehart narrates:
Oswald was rushed unconscious to Parkland Memorial Hospital—the same hospital where doctors tried to save President Kennedy's life two days earlier. Oswald died at 1:07 p.m. An autopsy was performed by the Dallas County Medical Examiner at 2:45 p.m. the same day. The stated cause of death in the autopsy report was "hemorrhage secondary to gunshot wound of the chest."
A network television camera, there to cover the transfer, was broadcasting live, and millions witnessed the shooting on television as it happened. The event was also captured in several well-known photographs.

Lee Harvey Oswald
A recorded compilation of news scripts and audio actualities prepared for a nonprofit LP record of audio surrounding the coverage of the assassination of President John F Kennedy. The album was a re-creation taken from actual recordings broadcast that four day period, beginning November 22, 1963, and broadcast over WQMR and WGAY-FM radio in Washington DC. Many of the narratives were re-recorded and the music heard at the beginning of track one was taken from a needle drop transcription and not actually broadcast. The album was produced by WQMR WGAY-FM Manager, Ed Winton, who narrated the record. Proceeds for consumer acquisition of the record were given to the family of slain Dallas police officer J. D. Tippett.

On November 23, President Johnson issued his first proclamation, declaring November 25 to be a day of national mourning for the slain president.
On that Monday, hundreds of thousands of people lined the streets of Washington to watch a horse-drawn caisson bear Kennedy's body from the Capitol Rotunda to St. Matthew's Catholic Cathedral for a requiem Mass. The solemn procession then continued on to Arlington National Cemetery, where leaders of 99 nations gathered for the state funeral. Kennedy was buried with full military honors on a slope below Arlington House, where an eternal flame was lit by his widow to forever mark the grave.

I returned to my duty station at the radio recording studios of the USAF Band. We listened to radio reports of the death of President Kennedy at 1400hours, 2PM Eastern Time. The President's body was leaving Parkland Hospital for Love Field and the return on Air Force One. (I later learned from my Dad that his flight was delayed from Dallas to San Francisco as these events unflolded). At 1600 hours the base alert was reduced and all personnel were allowed to leave. I left for my evening job (moonlighting) as announcer on the evening shift at WQMR and WGAY-FM the beautiful music stations. I was driving passed the new Dulles office building listening to Bryson Rash on WRC...he was introducing a Mass from St Peters Cathedral in New York City. Hearing choral music instead of the regular broadcast of The Joy Boys with Willard Scott and Ed Walker was quite and emotional moment for many listeners heading home. When I arrived at the Kemp Mill Road studios and transmitter in Wheaton Md. the station had switched to a continuing news format and I was to answer the phones. There were radio stations calling from The UK to Australia and all over America seeking news and actuality reports for their programming. For most of the evening and weeked I remained at the station reading news reports for them. Later in the evening on arrival at Andrews AFB the new President, Lyndon Baines Johnson, address the nation, and the world, from the tarmac:
WDVR-FM, 101.1, began broadcasting on 13 May 1963 with 24 hours of orchestral music in new multiplex FM Stereo, first in Philadelphia. Newscasts were heard briefly every three hours recorded first by the board operators then played back on the air. Besides news, IDs, promos and a few PSA's there was little talk as the station advertised and delivered over 55 minutes of music each hour. Heavy on promotion, The original dial cards, posters, card holders, stationery, coverage maps and station forms were designed, created, typeset, printed by 'Ambler Business Forms'. Initial advertisers were John B. White Ford and Philco which was the employer of station owner and engineer, David Kurtz. Underwriting style commercials were used for overnight "Night Sounds in Stereo". Within a few months it became the highest rated FM station in the city. Later the first FM station in the nation to bill over 1 million dollars. Voices in the beginning were announcer/operators Lee Kramer, Frank Edwards, Joaquin Bowman, Dave Shayer, Richard Franklin and Terry Wickham. The voice of Alan Campbell, of Upper Darby, Pa., was recorded and heard in afternoons and evenings. He was with WBAL-AM, Baltimore, MD in the early 1960's working with the beautiful music format created by Art Wander. Campbell worked with WHFS-FM (Bethesda, MD) Manager, Marlin Taylor, before Taylor went to Philadelphia to plan the programming and staff for the new WDVR-FM. Sales and promotions were successfully implemented by Jerry Lee who came to Philly from Baltimore. As General Manager he became partner and eventually sole owner. Today, still, the only major market individually owned station.

Benjamin Franklin (January 17, 1706 – April 17, 1790) was one of the Founding Fathers of the United States. A noted polymath, Franklin was a leading author, printer, political theorist, politician, postmaster, scientist, musician, inventor, satirist, civic activist, statesman, and diplomat. As a scientist, he was a major figure in the American Enlightenment and the history of physics for his discoveries and theories regarding electricity. He invented the lightning rod, bifocals, the Franklin stove, a carriage odometer, and the glass 'armonica'. He facilitated many civic organizations, including a fire department and a university. His celebrity and political savvy were to be exploited frequently on Philly Talk Radio. However he did not invent radio and had to use The Saturday Evening Post and Poor Richard's Almanac. MORE
