JFK Legacy in Kentucky on Eastern Standard

Nov 21, 2013

Where were you when you first learned about President Kennedy's assassination?  How did you hear about it? Did it effect you?  How do you view Kennedy's presidency half-a-century later? These are some of the questions we're asking in this week's show. 

This week's Eastern Standard is just one of the programs and news features commemorating the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
