50th Anniversary of Kennedy Assassination Remembered

Monday, 18 November 2013 | A Public Affair

Do you remember where you were the day John F. Kennedy was shot?

On Monday, November 18th, we discussed the 50th anniversary of the Kennedy assassination. The assassination of one of the United States’ most beloved presidents had powerful emotional effects on our nation that we still can feel today.

Capital Times Editor Emeritus Dave Zweifel joined our host John Quinlan to discuss how the Kennedy assassination impacted Madison and the nation. Zweifel has been with the Capital Times since 1962 and served as Editor in Chief from 1983 to 2008.

Read more recollections from Madisonians in Stu Levitan’s article in the Isthmus newspaper and listen to the WORT interview.

At the end of the show, Quinlan talked with Josh Ruebner about his book “Shattered Hopes: Obama’s Failure to Broker Israeli-Palestinian Peace”.¬†Ruebner will be speaking on the UW-Madison campus on Tuesday, November 19th, at 7pm. This will be in Room 1641 in Humanities on 445 N. Park Street.
