Description

For one brief shining moment in the early 1960s, John F. Kennedy impersonator Vaughn Meader was on top of the world. He was the voice of the hit comedy album "The First Family" which broke sales records and even won the Grammy for Album of the Year. Meader's impression also stirred up controversy, forcing White House advisers to grapple with the impact of political mimicry. In this episode Mo Rocca explores the story of this once-famous comic whose career died the same day President Kennedy was assassinated. Warning: this episode contains language that might be deemed offensive for some listeners.Learn more about the Mobituaries book: http://bit.ly/MobituariesBook

Thank you. Found it interesting. The events in Dallas happened just three months before I was born. How much things have changed. It's too bad that Mr. Meader had so much tragedy to deal with in his life. Fascinating story. Thank you.

I had no idea what to expect from this. I have always been a huge fan of yours since you first came to Sunday Morning. Needless to say it was very emotional and something I will never forget. As always a other great job.
