Steven's greatest hits:
  • Free: Three Shots Rang Out - The JFK Assassination 50 Years Later

    "What a great listen! Hear history as it happened!"

    Overall

    Story
    Would you listen to Free: Three Shots Rang Out - The JFK Assassination 50 Years Later again? Why?

    This is the definitive audio history of the Kennedy assassination as it happened, with gripping material from the ABC archives, along with powerful interviews with an ER doctor who attended to the president and a radio reporter who saw Oswald at the scene of the crime. You won't be able to find this stuff anywhere else. I intend to keep this recording for years to come.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    Some of this stuff exists on youtube, but far more original ABC Radio material is here in full context. It is a treasure trove for Kennedy history buffs, more powerful to listen to than to watch.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The interview with the ER doctor was particularly gripping. Don't miss it.

  • "The history to go along with the show"

    3 of 3 helpful votes

    This is more about the history of the period and a little less about show. Yet, if you are history buff and interested in the background character that is the time period this may be worth a listen. Yes, it is slow and can be at times dull, but it is also informative.

Writer Brian Daley adapted the film's highly visual script to the special demands and unique possibilities of radio, creating a more richly textured tale with greater emphasis on character development.
