Audible Editor Reviews

A vivid recreation of the moments before, during, and after president John F. Kennedy's assassination, based on original audio from ABC interwoven with commentary from Diane Sawyer and fresh interviews with the reporters, secret service agents, and medical personnel who were there. It's harrowing to hear the first breathless reports of the shooting, as well as the somber accounts from Kennedy's funeral, and the little details bring the terrible events back to life. Although the sound quality here is reliably excellent, there's a certain amount of repetition in the material that perhaps makes it best suited to JFK obsessives or those looking for thorough teaching tools.

Publisher's Summary

This edition of Three Shots Rang Out: The JFK Assassination 50 Years Later is an audio-only ABC News special created exclusively for Audible and hosted by ABC World News Anchor Diane Sawyer. Sawyer takes listeners back to Dealey Plaza in Dallas, Texas, on November 22, 1963, for a “you are there” exploration of the day of U.S. President John F. Kennedy’s assassination. Key moments include:

  • The very first reports of the assassination of President Kennedy.
  • Eyewitness accounts from that day in history and their reflections 50 years later.
  • Highlights from key newsmakers of the day.
  • Go inside the ABC News Radio newsroom as anchors sift through incoming bulletins on the shooting of President Kennedy.
  • Hear from Gayle Newman, the woman who was nearest to the president’s limousine when he was shot; Aubrey Reich and Dennis McGuire, two young paramedics who found themselves in the middle of history; and Gladys Johnson who rented the room where Lee Harvey Oswald was staying that day he when he left for work at the Texas School Book Depository.
  • Hear expanded interviews with Dr. Ronald Jones, who was bedside for both President Kennedy and Lee Harvey Oswald; and Pierce Allman, a reporter who happened to run into Oswald as he was asking for instructions to the nearest phone.
  • Plus, expanded coverage of President Kennedy’s funeral, and a look at the controversies surrounding the Kennedy assassination with political historian Larry Sabato.

These real time audio reports, eyewitness recollections from 1963, and new analysis make for a powerful experience of this fateful day in recent history.

    "Great glimpse back at a historical moment"

    This happened way before my time. I never really thought much about what happened to JFK but I knew the basics. I like what is said, "This was the 9/11 of that generation". I think it is cool that most of the recordings were made for the radio so they are very descriptive and detailed.

    "Return to the deed!"

    A pleasant recall of the day in infamy for that generation. The facts diminish over time but this synopsis refreshes those terrible days and opens up the actual happenings of the day. The world was deceived of the reality of a tragedy.

    "Great overview of the events"

    This was an excellent overview of the events leading up to and surrounding the assasination. It felt like I was transported to the time and could sense the depth of the tragedy.
