We Knew JFK: Unheard stories from the Kennedy archives

"We Knew JFK" is an hour-long radio documentary on the life of John F. Kennedy, told in oral history form, through the first-person recollections of those who knew him. The program is constructed from a remarkable collection of audio interviews, recorded half a century ago and archived at the Kennedy Library in Boston, where they have gone largely unheard by the general public.

Program narrator and co-writer Robert MacNeil covered Kennedy for NBC News and was in the motorcade in Dallas, where the president was assasinated. This program offers listeners a participants' eye view of an extraordinarily eventful time, and of the complex figure at its center.

Join us on Sunday, May 28 at 7 p.m. for "We Knew JFK," or if you missed the live broadcast, listen online.
