Presidential ProTools

Friend of Bang-A-Song, Ted Widmer, is the author of the recently published ‘Listening In: The Secret White House Recordings of John F. Kennedy‘ (Hyperion), which contains 2.5 hours of previously-unheard recordings from Kennedy’s Oval Office Dictaphone. ¬†You can read a review in the New York Times. Better yet, you can pick up a copy on Amazon, peruse the credits, and realize that the fact that ‘CDs were edited and sequenced by Tony Goddess at Bang-A-Song Studios in Gloucester, Massachusetts’ means that we were among the first humans to hear our 35th President make ‘Two Calls About Furniture Purchase’ on July 25th, 1963. ¬†Seriously, though…it was an honor to be a part of it, and many thanks to Ted for including us.
