On Nov. 22, 2013, KUT will broadcast a special report on the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in Dallas.

KUT's special report is based on interviews recounting personal memories of that day in Dallas. Sid Davis was the Westinghouse radio pool reporter who got to Parkland Hospital by waving his typewriter in the air and hitching a ride. He followed the story onto Air Force One and witnessed LBJ's swearing into office. 

Julian Read was an aide to Governor John Connally. He describes the scene in Dallas and as he worked with White House press and briefed reporters at Parkland Hospital. 

Both describe in vivid detail the historic day. Click the audio above get a sneak preview.
