S04-E02 We feature Queen Elizabeth II (then Princess Elizabeth) in her first radio speech. In 1940, at just 13 years of age, Princess Elizabeth spoke briefly with listeners throughout the commonwealth and the U.S through a BBC children’s radio program. It was a morale-boosting message to fellow young people affected by the devastating German air attacks and threats of invasion during the early part of World War II. She spoke with a maturity far beyond her young age to inspire hope for the children, some of which have been forced to evacuate from the British cities to the countryside or to other countries including the U.S. I provide several PDF documents in addition to this audio episode: First, a biography of Princess Elizabeth who would in just a few years become Queen Elizabeth II. Second, an overview of the British civilians, both young and old, who were evacuated from Britain to other countries. Third, an overview of the civilians who trekked to the British countryside to avoid the German air attacks. And fourth, an overview of the BBC Children’s Hour radio show where Princess Elizabeth delivered her short speech.

S04-E01 We feature the oral arguments made before the U.S. Supreme Court regarding overturning the previous Roe v. Wade abortion rights ruling from decades ago. You hear the lawyers for the two sides and questions made by some of the Supreme Court Justices. Due to the complexity of the issues, these arguments lasted nearly two hours. A quick summary of the case: In 2018, Mississippi passed a law called the “Gestational Age Act,” which prohibits all abortions, with few exceptions, after 15 weeks’ gestational age. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the only licensed abortion facility in Mississippi, and one of its doctors filed a lawsuit in federal district court challenging the new law and requesting an emergency temporary restraining order. This case was eventually appealed up to the U.S. Supreme Court. The legal question was this, Is Mississippi’s law banning nearly all abortions after 15 weeks’ gestational age unconstitutional? By a decision of six to three, the majority opinion of the U.S. Supreme Court was that the Constitution does not confer a right to abortion; Roe v. Wade, 410 U.S. 113, and Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pa. v. Casey, 505 U.S. 833, are overruled. Justice Samuel Alito authored the majority opinion of the Court. He concludes his opinion of the court by stating that “We end this opinion where we began. Abortion presents a profound moral question. The Constitution does not prohibit the citizens of each State from regulating or prohibiting abortion. Roe and Casey arrogated that authority. We now overrule those decisions and return that authority to the people and their elected representatives.” In other words, the Supreme Court ruling did not outlaw abortion, it stated that abortion is regulated by each of the fifty states through their state governments and their elected officials. Justices Breyer, Sotomayor, and Kagan dissented from this decision. Due to the complex nature of the topic of the Supreme Court case, I provide several PDF documents in addition to this audio episode: First, a transcript of the oral arguments by the attorneys for each side along with the questions made by several of the justices. This is 115 pages. Second, a document called the Syllabus which contains the majority opinion by Justice Alito, a concurring opinion by Justice Roberts, and the dissenting opinions of Justices Breyer, Sotomayor, and Kagan. Alito’s opinion begins on page 1 of this 213-page document. The dissenting opinions begin on page 148. Third, an overview of Roe v. Wade which was one of the previous abortion cases that were overturned by this current verdict. Fourth, an overview of abortion in the U.S. that also provides information for each state. Fifth, a biography of Supreme Court Justice Alito who wrote the majority opinion for the court on this case.

S03-E23 We feature Reverend Dr. Billy Graham and his short Christmas Message. In addition to this audio episode, I also provide several PDF documents: first, the story of the nativity or birth of Jesus, second, background on the assumed location of Jesus birth which is now called the Church of the Nativity, and finally, historical and religious background on Bethlehem which is where Jesus was born.

S03-E22 We feature the voices of Orson Wells, Lionel Barrymore, and the rest of the and for the dramatization of Charles Dicken’s classic, A Christmas Carol. We hear several distinguished actors of radio, film, and television: Orson Wells who is acclaimed to be one of the greatest and most influential actors, writers, and directors in radio, film, and television. He will serve as the narrator. Lionel Barrymore will serve the role of Scourge. To many of you, he played the role of Mr. Potter in Frank Capra’s It’s a Wonderful Life. Mr. Barrymore is also a heralded actor of radio, film, and television. I include a biography of Charles Dickens who is the author of A Christmas Carol and so many other influential stories. If you want to dig deeper into the social commentary of Mr. Dickens about the disparity of life in England at the time when the story was first published, read the article that is provided. A Christmas Carol has been a popular story for a variety of Hollywood films. Too many of the recent ones overlook the gritty critique of inequality for the masses who toiled during the industrial revolution. I could say more, but that is best explored in other podcast episodes I have produced. In addition to this audio episode, I also provide several PDF documents: first, a biography of Orson Wells, second, a biography of Lionel Barrymore, third, a biography of Charles Dickens, and finally, an overview of “A Christmas Carol”, one of the best known of Mr. Dicken’s publications.

S03-E21 We feature Jack Benny with one of his Christmas radio shows. Mr. Benny was an American entertainer who began in vaudeville and became a highly popular comedian in radio, television, and film. He was known for his comic timing and the ability to cause laughter with a pregnant pause or a single expression, such as his signature exasperated “Well!” He was influential for comedians down to the present era. I was a big fan of his radio and television shows. Other entertainers of his era include Red Skelton, Bob Hope, and Bing Crosby. In addition to this audio episode, I also provide several PDF documents: first, a biography of Mr. Benny and second, an overview of the Jack Benny radio and television shows.

S03-E20 We feature Bing Crosby and one of the episodes from his long-running radio program that had a Christmas theme. Bing Crosby was a remarkable entertainer that performed on the stage, radio, film, and television during the middle of the 20th century. His singing ranged from traditional pop, to easy listening, to vocal jazz, and country. He had diverse interests including co-ownership of the Pittsburgh Pirates baseball team during which the team won two World Series in 1960 and 1971. He was a technology pioneer with investing in audio recording equipment following World War Two and using the same with his radio shows. He also had a television production studio as well. Among shows produced through his studio was the popular Hogan’s Heroes. For me, I most think about Mr. Crosby and his movies that are often broadcast at this holiday time including Holiday Inn and White Christmas. It is hard to forget his rendition of “It’s a White Christmas.” In addition to this audio episode, I also provide several PDF documents: first, a biography of Mr. Crosby, second, a filmography, third, an overview of his radio show, and finally, a description of his radio work supporting the U.S. troops during World War Two.

S03-E19 We feature Red Skelton and a 1946 Christmas episode from his long-running radio program. Red Skelton was a dominating performer on radio, film, and television during the second half of the 20th century. While most of his work was comedy, he also had several dramatic performances. One of his most memorable dramatic pieces was his reading of the Pledge of Allegiance. He would read the document phrase by phrase, and then provide a short interpretation for what the words meant. I will feature that short piece on a future Historic Voices podcast episode. I grew up listening and watching Mr. Skelton perform. He is the only performer that would finish each season of his radio or TV program with a short apology to any famous people or politicians who he and his cast would tease during their shows. He was a gentleman and a kind person. In addition to this audio episode, I also provide several PDF documents: first, a biography of Mr. Skelton, second, an overview of his TV show that ran for two decades, and finally an overview of his radio show that ran for more than a decade previously. It was common for radio shows to be named for the advertising sponsor; hence the name of the radio show was the Raleigh Cigarette Program.

S03-E18 President Ronald Reagan spoke at the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin that is often referred to as the “Tear Down this Wall” speech. Like many other U.S. presidents, President Reagan gave a speech in Berlin during the Cold War between the U.S. and the Soviets. To demonstrate solidarity with the German people who were in Soviet-occupied East Germany, President Kennedy stated two decades earlier “I am a Berliner” and identified with their struggle for freedom. President Reagan’s speech touched on many topics, but the most famous line came in the middle of the speech when he not only identified with the struggle that President Kennedy had described, but Reagan called upon the Soviets to tear down the Berlin wall. The Brandenburg Gate was just one spot along a long line of separation that divided Germany in half with Communist troops, barbed wire, and fences. This is generally listed as one of President Reagan finest speeches. Two years after this speech was given, the Berlin Wall indeed was removed and the Brandenburg Gate was opened. But the story for why that occurred is a tremendously complicated event and one that may be explored in another speech in the future. In addition to this audio episode, I also provide several PDF documents: first, a transcript of this speech, secondly a biography of President Reagan, thirdly, a history of the Brandenburg Gates, and finally, a short analysis of Reagan’s speech.

S03-E17 We feature President John F Kennedy and his speech on America’s Space Program delivered at Rice University on September 12, 1962. At this stage of the space race with the Soviets, the U.S. has successfully placed several astronauts into space. A theme of the talk by President Kennedy is summed up in one of the quotations from the speech, “all great and honorable actions are accompanied with great difficulties, and both must be enterprised and overcome with answerable courage.” He explains why it is worth the cost to go to the moon. In addition to this audio episode, I also provide several PDF documents: first, a transcript of this speech, second, a short biography of JFK’s life, and finally, an overview of the Kennedy Space Center in Florida which was renamed in honor of the president for his vision of the space program.

Some of the topics of the nearly 50-minute press conference included experiments he conducted, malfunctions of the equipment, his impression of seeing the earth and stars from the spacecraft, and other topics. In addition to this audio episode, I also provide several PDF documents to provide a broader context for Mr. Glenn’s and NASA’s achievement: first, a bibliography of John Glenn would go on to eventually serve as a distinguished U.S. Senator, second, a history of space flight, third, an overview of the Mercury 7 astronauts of which Mr. Glenn was a member, and finally an overview of the space race between the Soviets and the U.S. The following links allow you to subscribe to this podcast: iTunes and Apple Podcast, Amazon Music/Audible, Castbox.fm, Deezer, Facebook, Gaana, Google Podcast, iHeartRadio, Player.fm, Radio Public, Samsung Listen, Spotify, Stitcher, TuneIn, Twitter. and Vurbl.

S03-E10 We feature an interview with Malcolm X and Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. This event occurred on March 27, 1964. The press interviews Malcolm X and Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. amidst a Senatorial debate about the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Malcolm, calling the bill 'political chicanery,' wonders whether liberals are truly for Civil Rights legislation or not. Dr. King discusses possible direct action for making sure the bill is not filibustered. He expresses his intent to test the bill if and when it is passed. He also feels that the failure to pass the bill could lead to social disruption. The Civil Rights Act was signed into law on July 2, 1964.

S03-E09 We feature Edward R Murrow, the well-respected newspaper and radio reporter from the 1940s and 1950s and his newscast on flying saucers in 1950. Currently, the government and the military are releasing more information about sightings of UFOs. A big release is planned this summer by the military. I thought it timely to look back in history to see how such UFOs were covered by the traditional news media. Edward R Murrow is considered by many as the finest journalist of his or any generation. He covered World War Two from London and even flew on some dangerous bombing missions over Germany during the war. I thought you would like to listen to this trained journalist make early reports about UFOs. In addition to this audio episode, I also provide several PDF documents: first, a biography of his life, second, an overview on UFOs, third, a list of UFO sightings, and fourth, a record of UFOs in popular fiction.

S03-E08 We feature President Clinton and his 1995 speech at the Oklahoma City Bombing Memorial Service. U.S. Presidents are often called upon to help the nation begin the healing process after great tragedies. In this short set of remarks at the memorial service, the President begins that painful process in April 1995 a few days after the bombing. It will take months before the federal investigation is completed of the second most deadly act of terrorism on U.S. soil, only surpassed by events of September 11th. The concept of terrorists coming from inside the U.S. was a difficult concept for most Americans to believe. Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols were anti-government extremists who acted in part to recent events of federal law enforcement intervention at the Ruby Ridge compound and the Branch Davidians in Waco, Texas. All of these events became part of the paranoid delusion that led McVeigh and Nichols plant the bomb in Oklahoma City that killed so many, caused so much destruction, and led a nation to fear their neighbors, especially new immigrants to the U.S. It is for that reason that the historical accounts of all three events are included to provide context for the event that led to the President’s speech. In addition to this audio episode, I also provide several PDF documents: first, a transcript of this speech, second a historical account of the Oklahoma bombing, third an account of the Ruby Ridge compound, and finally, an account of the Branch Davidian confrontation in Waco, Texas.

S03-E07 We feature Mr. Paul Harvey and his 1970 commencement speech given at Brigham Young University in Utah. To say that Mr. Harvey was an American institution is to make an understatement. For decades, he commanded a radio audience of more than twenty million to dispense his Midwestern values and American patriotism with his take on national and world news. Please take the time to read through the PDF that accompanies this podcast for a review of a remarkable life that influenced a generation. There are plenty of his speeches available on YouTube.
