Sheila writes: This week is the 50th anniversary of the assassination of American President John F. Kennedy. The following piece is an interesting side view of that historic event, told by an eyewitness. An opening excerpt from the piece: "And on Friday November 22, 1963, at the top of a concert by the Boston Symphony Orchestra that happened to also be a WGBH radio broadcast and so was captured for posterity, the BSO’s revered music director Erich Leinsdorf broke some unimaginable news to a crowded symphony hall. What was to have been a routine concert became a memorial to the 35th President of the United States, reduced audience members to tears and in some ways redefined what music could be for those present. It is also, surely, one of the most emotional pieces of radio ever recorded." Read the whole thing here, and listen to the broadcast concert below.
