Sunday, November 24, 1963. Broadcast coverage from Approximately 2:00PM (Eastern Standard Time) to 11:35 PM,  
         A total of 395 minutes of coverage. 

This Special TV and Radio audio air check, originally recorded off the air at the time during its original broadcast, November 24, 1963, is one of the two most rare and valued archived broadcasts in the over 20,000 titled Archival Television Audio, Inc. collection. Second only to Phil Gries’ off the air recording of Don Pardo’s first two NBC TV bulletins announcing the shooting of President JOHN F. KENNEDY and the initial 3 minutes and 53 seconds of NBC TELEVISION coverage NOT RECORDED (AUDIO OR VIDEO) BY NBC or any other affiliate station, person, or archive in the United States.
NOVEMBER 24, 1963 original coverage on reel-to-reel AUDIO TAPE (RECORDED DIRECT LINE PROVIDING EXCELLENT SOUND REPRODUCITON) begins at approximately at 2:00 PM, Eastern Standard Time, one hour and thirty-nine minutes after Jack Ruby shot Lee Harvey Oswald as he was being transported from the Dallas city Jail to an awaiting armored vehicle at 11:21 Central Standard Time, 12:21 Eastern Standard time.

Only recently rediscovered, by ATA founder/owner Phil Gries, originally thought lost, this six hour and thirty-five-minute audio tape air check has been monitored for the following summaries and names / details that are contained related to assassination coverage of Lee Harvey Oswald as it unfolds in Dallas Texas. This broadcast  recording is not linear, focusing on only one station, but audio recorded by many TV and Radio stations at the time of the actual events, randomly channel changing and searching for salient station coverage (“channel hopping)” from TV to Radio back to TV, back to Radio, etc. This only extant broadcast record is a true TIME CAPSUL RETROSPECTIVE FEELING OF EVENTS OF THE DAY AS THEY WERE HAPPING IN REAL TIME.…RECORDING OVER SIX & HALF HOURS of audio tape covering a NINE & HALF HOUR period of time related to covered broadcasting air time on November 24, 1963 form 2:00pm Eastern Standard Time, ending at approximately 11:35PM, Eastern Standard Time.  

Five Radio Stations are recorded (WJRZ, WINS, WNEW, WRR, MUTUAL, KLIF), and six television stations are recorded (CBS, NBC, WNEW, WFAA, ABC, WNTA), disseminating the news as each broadcast station presents programming from varied locations. 108 individuals can be heard or mentioned, in different capacities…news reports, interviews, subjects under investigation, and individuals connected to Lee Harvey Oswald and Jack Ruby. Interspersed, there continues to be coverage of today’s event of President John F. Kennedy who lies in state in the rotunda at the Capitol in Washington D.C. 

NOTE: 85% of the 395 minutes contained in this air check are unique representing “lost” broadcasts representing coverage of the Oswald assassination as presented on television stations, CBS, NBC, ABC, WNEW, WFAA, WNTA, and radio stations, WJRZ, WINS, WNEW, MUTUAL. 15% of the radio and television RECORDINGS contained in this tape can be found on YouTube, and are archived by museums and television stations. However, 85% of the air checks contained in these originally audio taped recordings are a one of a kind broadcast record. To date no other resource of media recordings (TV / Radio) such as detailed below, moment to moment on different Radio and Television stations in real time sequence, has been found to exist in any broadcast or transcript form other than the following air checks contained in the Archival Television Audio, Inc. archive. 

In 1993 a 49-minute CD, narrated by Reid Collins of WNEW Radio News, was released containing highlights of media broadcast coverage related to the JFK assassination and additional news coverage Nov. 22 -25, 1963. Included in the ten different clips are a 6:34 audio tape recording (edited version) of Ike Pappas audio tape coverage at the scene as Jack Ruby shoots Lee Harvey Oswald. Included in this ATA air check is over one and half additional minutes of original audio coverage by Ike Pappas and additional on the air live post commentary and reporting by Pappas communicated back to Jim Van Sickle anchoring at station WNEW 1130 AM in New York.  

The only other extant radio / television coverage of the assassination of Lee Harvey Oswald are You Tube postings recorded by station KLIF- Dallas Radio at 12:18pm (EST) which begins after the shooting, prior to Oswald being transported by ambulance to Parkland hospital. It is interesting to note seen in this footage, recorded by station KRLD-TV, reporter Ike Pappas walks with his audio tape recorder over his left shoulder and gets into line, (only twelve seconds prior to Lee Harvey Oswald appearing, and being shot) with other reporters. Unknown to Pappas, Jack Ruby, stands in line, only a few feet away to his left. Also archived is NBC TV coverage with Tom Pettit reporting the shooting on live television, including KRLD, WFAA, and NBC TV coverage, AUDIO ONLY of the assassination. Note: all the above extant air checks are excerpts, some brief.  

Audio air check coverage discovered on this off the air audio recording of TV and Radio coverage begins at approximately 2:00pm E.S.T. We are tuned to WJRZ RADIO: 

“Reviewing details of today’s events surrounding the shooting of Lee Harvey Oswald as he was being transferred from one jail to another. A crowd of journalists, photographers and police crowded around in the jail’s basement garage and watched as Oswald was led out and was about to be placed in a police car. As the report indicates, at this time, Oswald’s heart has stopped, and doctors are attempting to keep him alive using 15 pints of blood to save his life administering open heart message. Reporting is Mike Ludlum.” 

CBS TV NEWS: A report by Neil Strawser at 2:05pm. “Doctors are fighting desperately to preserve the life of the accused assassin of the President of the United States, John F. Kennedy. Lee Harvey Oswald, who was shot two hours ago (12:21 EST) is now undergoing surgery. 

At 2:10 pm a CBS NEWS FLASH: 
“This is CBS News Headquarters in New York. We now have a flash from Dallas Texas that Oswald is dead. (2:07 PM, Eastern Standard Time). He had been shot just two hours ago as he was being moved from Dallas City Hall jail to the county jail where the process of justice was about to be carried out, one step farther.”

At 2:13 pm (EST). NBC NEWS: “In the Capital of the rotunda ceremony for JFK is concluding. Members of the Senate and their wives are departing.”
Almost simultaneously, a “Flash” from the NBC Newsroom. United Press: “OSWALD IS DEAD.”

CBS TV. Walter Cronkite reports up to date news of the assassination of Oswald. 

WNEW 11:30 AM RADIO. 2:15PM:
2 hours and 54 minutes after Jack Ruby shot Lee Harvey Oswald, on air anchor Jim Van Sickle states, “As reporter Ike Pappas, on the scene, described earlier most vividly, police are now holding night club owner Jack Ruby with the killing of Lee Harvey Oswald who was denying to the last minute his involvement killing the President. Police had checked out everybody including Jack Ruby.” 

Jim Van Sickle then reminds his listening audience, “By way of a tape recording, reporter Ike Pappas describes the moment Oswald was shot. He was standing just 6 feet from Oswald when Ruby fired his pistol. In fact, he wondered himself whether he had been shot. Pappas called in to WNEW immediately and relayed his report.” 

Jim Van Sickle replays the entire tape recording that Ike Pappas had made which was originally played earlier in the broadcast.
“We have a prisoner wearing a black sweater. He has changed from his T-Shirt. He’s being brought out toward an armored car, being led out by Captain Fritz.”

As Oswald nears Pappas IKE PAPPAS moves his right hand holding his microphone and asks LEE HARVEY OSWALD, 

“Do you have anything to say in defense?” 

IMMEDIATELY, A SHOT RINGS OUT as JACK RUBY shoots Oswald. Pappas continues to roll tape and we hear him describe the chaotic scene. “Oswald has been shot. There is a great deal of confusion at the moment. One of the wildest scenes I have ever seen,” exclaims, Ike Pappas.

NOTE: ON THE INTERNET ONE CAN HEAR 4 minutes and 47 seconds of this riveting account of the shooting of Lee Harvey Oswald by Jack Ruby as tape recorded by Ike Pappas on David von Pein’s exceptional JFK Channel on You Tube. On this Archival Television Audio, Inc. air check there exists additional minutes heard, totaling 8 minutes. 

After the recording is rebroadcast, Jim Van Sickle goes live to Dallas and converses on WNEW AM with Ike Pappas who is still at the scene at the Dallas County Jail at 2:25pm  
(EST)just a little over two hours since Jack Ruby shot Lee Harvey Oswald. 

Ike Pappas live telephone conversation from Dallas Texas to New York with WNEW Radio anchor, Jim Van Sickle.

“Just after learning that Oswald had died Jack Ruby is being held in the 4th floor jail under extremely heavy guard. Latest development has been C.A. Droby, Jack Ruby’s attorney has arrived. He states that Ruby has been brooding and emotional ever since the President was shot. More and more he has been thinking about avenging the death of the president. Detective C.H. “Billy’ Combest stood opposite Ruby and saw the gun come out of the jacket of Ruby and saw the TV lights against the gun. Combest screamed, “JACK YOU S.O.B. DON’T DO IT.” 

Pappas further reports “At the moment a press briefing is being held. In retrospect since Friday night Jack Ruby has had total access at headquarters here. An incredible thing for a man who is not a policeman.”
Ike Pappas continues to tell Jim Van Sickle, “Attorney C.A. Droby’s wife received a phone call from a man with a foreign accent and stated that he will be the next one shot.” Police chief Jesse Curray is following up on all leads whether this assassination is an organized plot or a one-man act? “

Back at the WNEW 11:30 radio studio, anchor Jim Van Sickle states, “Ike Pappas reporting from Dallas Texas doing a magnificent job.” 

WNEW radio report is heard from science editor Earl Ubell who states that Jack Ruby shot Oswald with a 38-caliber gun. Also stated, “…frenetic efforts of surgeon and doctors to save Oswald’s life at any cost. However, the bullet penetrated the aorta and Oswald had no chance of surviving.”

And repeating, Lee Harvey Oswald died on the operating table in Parkland hospital at 1:07 pm Dallas time, 48 hours and 7 minutes after President Kennedy succumbed to shots by Oswald.” “Moscow Radio reported the shooting of Lee Harvey Oswald after news agencies flashed the news.”

Jim Van Sickle summarizes the events of the day, including how Jack Ruby entered the police precinct. Again, a replay of Ike Pappas’ tape recorder continuing to record the assassination and aftermath.  Pappas states that since 1953 Jack Ruby has had a police record. Pappas interview with police at a press conference, Captain John Fritz confirms to Pappas that Oswald alone assassinated the President of the United States, John F. Kennedy. Asked if Oswald said anything before his own assassination, Fritz says, “No.” 

Back at the WNEW- RADIO STUDIO, Ike Pappas communicates with anchor Jim Van Sickle. He states that on Friday night (November 23rd) he met Jack Ruby who befriended him and gave him his card. Ruby told Pappas that if he had any trouble getting news out of the police to just call him. 
Jim Van Stickle states that:
“ Ike Pappas, who almost got in the way of that bullet directed at shooting Oswald was on the wire to WNEW within minutes of the shooting. At that point Ruby had been hustled off into the courthouse to be questioned. The police had not yet officially divulged the name of the shooter and in proper fashion Pappas had refrained in telling us just who it was and what kind of man he was. Here in New York, we had received a FLASH that it was Jack Ruby. I told Pappas, ‘Ike, we just received word that they have named the killer.’ ‘What is his name asked Pappas?’ “Jack Ruby,” I said. And, then Ike Pappas said this:

“Now I have just reached into my pocket when you said Jack Ruby, and I pull out a card called the Carousel Club. Now is this official, Jim, from the police department here?”
Van Sickle responds, “Yes, this has been reported here.”
Ike Pappas, “OK, on the basis of that I will continue. The Carousel Club located at 131 &1/2 Commerce Street; Dallas Texas is a club which puts on continuous shows. Glamourous Girls, Girls, Girls. And at the bottom of the card, it says ‘Your Host Jack Ruby.’ Apparently, this man, Jack Ruby, that you just told me about, and I was reluctant to release his name because it did not come out officially, runs this night club the Carousel Club. Now, the other night as I said, it struck me as extremely unusual to have this man, who is not a policeman, come up to me after the brief press conference we had with Oswald, who mumbled that he had not killed the President, and the police on Friday. This man, Jack Ruby had straight black hair with a bald spot on the top of his head. He is angular thin. He has a dark thick beard. He speaks in short, fleeting sentences. He knows the police very well here. Apparently, some of his best friends are on the police force. And, he had access to that room. He was running freely. As a matter of fact, when I wanted to talk to the District Attorney of Dallas, the equivalent of Louis Lefkowitz, the State attorney General of New York State, this man Jack Ruby went over, and he talked to him and told him this reporter wants to talk to you. And Jack Ruby brought this District Attorney over to me and got him on the phone. So, here as you tell us, Jack Ruby who I didn’t want to mention to you apparently has shot Lee Oswald.”

Police immediately grab the man, the assailant identified as Jack Ruby, the man accused of killing Lee Harvey Oswald. 

ABC’s Bill Lord reports form Dallas police headquarters on the 3rd floor. 
He states that the transfer of Oswald was scheduled for 10AM (Central Time), but it occurred shortly after 11AM (11:21AM).
“This advanced publicity might have been a contributing factor. The presence of the News Media encouraged the police to cooperate fully. They thought of getting Oswald out a back door. But they decided not to. They wanted to cooperate. No one can write history. But we can all hope the lessons learned here in Dallas during the past three days will teach us something. History will not again be written by assassins.”

Lord continues, “Oswald was taken to Parkland Memorial Hospital to emergency room 2 after being shot, trauma room 2 just a few feet from emergency room 1 where President Kennedy had died, almost exactly 2 days before these unbelievable events occurred.

“This has been an extremely sad moment, and I am grief stricken.” He further states, “We should realize that President Kennedy was a victim of a development which has made hatred and violence a sought of popular pastime in all too many quarters of our nation. And I think that we are challenged to work with new vigor to rid the nation of all of the conditions that can make such a great tragedy, and an act like this, possible.” King also expresses his thoughts related to our new President Lyndon Johnson, and future Civil Rights legislation. 

At National Airport arriving John Glenn is interviewed. Eli Abel reports from the Capital rotunda…arriving, Irish leader President Eamon de Valera, aged and virtually blind. 

Ray Scherer reports at the Capital. He describes poignant moment of Mrs. Kennedy kissing the casket. 

At 11pm Eastern Standard time, Frank Mc Gee, at NBC Studio Headquarters, introduces a replay of a broadcast televised in the UK last night (November 23rd) THAT WAS THE WEEK THAT WAS. Richard Dimbleby joins McGee and after the complete program is broadcast Dimbleby mentions some facts about the host of this new satirical TV series hosted by, unknown in the USA, David Frost.  

Frank McGee summarizes. “One of the remarkable things, this is a program that has devoted itself until now to the slicing political of figures, to ridiculing movements and ideas, and bringing to bear the weapon of wit. To destroy the pompous and to lay low the evil. This time they chose to make a program that gave tribute to the President of the United States. For me it was both flattering and reassuring to find that foreigners cand find us so well, and to put into words so aptly what so many of us have felt. Shattering, because it shows what they could make of our weaknesses. Reassuring, in that what they had chosen to make in a moment of sorrow.”

March 13, 1967 - July 5, 1968 (Half Hour)
July 8, 1968 - February 23, 1979 (One Hour)

Bill Jorgensen was the founding and longtime anchor of New York City's FIRST PRIME TIME ONE HOUR WEEKLY NEWS BROADCAST premiering  format on July 8, 1968. It began as a half hour News Broadcast anchored by Bill Jorgensen on March 13, 1967.

 When WNEW-TV began producing 10 O'CLOCK NEWS with Bill Jorgensen at the helm, no other commercial television stations had a prime time newscast. The New York Times television critic Jack Gould described the newscast as "a thoroughly professional news summary" due in part to "Mr. Jorgensen's durably pleasing style and demeanor. He suggests authority without affectation." 

On March 13, 1967 Channel 5 launched the first prime time newscast in the tri-state area, just a few months after sister station WTTG in Washington D.C. became the first station in the United States with one. Since then, a lot has changed but there are still a few constants like the seemingly eternal question, “It’s 10 p.m. Do you know where your children are?”

In 1967, channel 5, then called WNEW-TV, had been an independent television station for eleven years since the disbanding of the DuMont Network where it was the flagship station. The station was owned by Metromedia, which obtained the majority of the network’s assets, including the DuMont Tele-centre on East 67th Street that served as the home for channel 5.

Metromedia tapped Bill Jorgensen, a reporter for WEWS in Cleveland to anchor the newscast in either Washington or New York. Jorgensen decided on New York after he had heard some in the industry say that the news couldn’t compete against entertainment programming. In the newscast’s first year, it was competing against programs from the networks such as The Big Valley, The Carol Burnett Show, The Dean Martin Show and I Spy. The neigh sayers were proven wrong and the plucky little newscast without all the resources of a big network behind it did quite well against the entertainment competition and quickly expanded from a half hour to an hour.

In December of 1969 John Roland joined the station and a little less than ten years later became Jorgensen’s successor after he moved over to WPIX in 1979. When Roland took over the anchor chair, WPIX’s Action News (later Independent Network News) offered the only 10 p.m. competition for news in the city. In other parts of the country 10 p.m. newscasts were popping up on independent stations after seeing the success in New York.

The 10 O'CLOCK NEWS on WNEW TV  followed a talk show hosted by Merv Griffin and was followed by a local talk show hosted by Alan Burke, and then followed with The Les Crane Show when The 10'Oclock News was a half hour broadcast. This line-up rapidly built a substantial audience. 

After a twelve year successful run Bill Jorgensen left WNEW and The 10'OClock News and was succeeded at by John Roland, who anchored his first broadcast on March 14, 1979. Jorgensen who quit after his Feb. 23, broadcast left the newscast without an official anchor replacement for two and half weeks. Roland who had previously been a featured reporter and co-anchor became the new anchor. 

Bill Jorgensen's signature signoff was "I'm Bill Jorgensen, thanking you for your time this time 'till next time."

NOTE: Bill Jorgensen had it written into his contract at WNEW that he was the only one who could use a TelePrompTer, and this meant that when he was debriefing a reporter on set, the reporter would have to constantly look at his notes. By contract, Jorgensen would always look steadily into the camera, projecting an air of power and confidence. He warred bitterly with station management, including Ted Kavanau, then news director, who says Jorgensen "was a difficult guy, very moody, hardly talked to anybody, but when you turned on that camera, he performed brilliantly. He had a voice that was like fate reaching out to you."

ON THIS BROADCAST: Joined in progress,  Rolland Smith, National White House correspondent for Metromedia television (WTTG), and staff hire on the 10 O'clock News for a short period of time in 1970, reports an investigative analysis commentary questioning the actions and timeline of Senator Edward Kennedy related to his movements and apparent activities before, during and after the tragic auto accidental death of Mary Jo Kopechne who was a passenger in Kennedy's car on the evening of July 18, 1969.

Questions Smith poses during  the final seven minutes of this joined in progress report, and also heard statements by Senator Edward Kennedy recorded and integrated in this report during his press conferences include:

-How did Ted Kennedy know that Mary Jo Kopechne was dead when he walked away from the accident site?

-Why did Kennedy walk over a mile back to the party from which he and Mary Jo just left after the accident and not to anyone one of a few close by homes near the site of the accident?

-Why a 10 hour gap in time before Kennedy called the police?

-Was it possible that Mary Joe Kopechne was still alive when Ted Kennedy left the scene of the car submerged in the water?

-Why once Kennedy returned to the party no doctor was called immediately?

-How did Kennedy manage to swim a challenging 300 feet swim back to his hotel room after all Ferry service was closed for the night, after 1am?

-Why was there no immediate questions by authorities of those people who attended the party?

-Why were all of those who attended the party off the island before the investigation began?

-Why was there such a quick "closed case" stated by Edgartown Police chief Dominick Arena whom we hear stating as such at a press conference.

Included in this investigative report by Rolland Smith is his interview with Metromedia Television News grip, Jack Loubat (?) who test swims the same swift current that purportedly Senator Edward Kennedy states he swam, only to conclude that it is very challenging feat and very difficult to accomplish.

The news continues with a report on Edward Kennedy's immediate pollical future at stake, and a separate news story concerning the New Haven railroad battle ahead related to fare proposed hikes. A segment filmed at a public hearing is covered with Westchester congressman Ogden Reid objecting to the proposed raises. A counter point of view is expressed by a railroad representative at the hearing. 

Rolland Smith's earliest broadcasting job was for Metromedia Television, where he served as White House correspondent for WTTG. Metromedia would later transfer him to New York, where he would become co-anchor of WNEW-TV's 10 PM newscast.

Smith departed Metromedia for CBS in the Fall of 1970, and instantly became a reporter and anchor for WCBS. In 1973 Smith was named co-anchor of WCBS' evening newscasts, a position he held for 13 years. His 11 PM co-anchors included Dave Marash (1973–1978 and 1981–1982) and Vic Miles (1978–1979), before Michele Marsh joined him for the balance of his run with channel 2. Starting in late 1975, he was teamed with Jim Jensen on the 6 PM newscast, a partnership that remained until Smith's departure from the station in 1986.

Ted Kennedy, Edward Kennedy, Arthur Fiedler & the Boston Pops Orchestra, William Pierce, Arthur Fiedler

July 5, 1970-Sept. 23, 1979. 

This broadcast featured Edward Kennedy, Senator from Massachusetts. This was the first broadcast of the series. A recurring summer series, "Evening at Pops" presents the Boston Pops Orchestra, under the direction of Arthur Fiedler (until his death July 10, 1979).

Debut: A musical salute to America opens a 13-week series of concerts by Arthur Fiedler and the Boston Pops.

Announcer for the series is William Pierce.

Evening at Pops was a long-term television series produced by Boston's local PBS-affiliate station, WGBH. It aired from 1970-2005 (reaching much wider PBS audiences than the WGBH area), and was conducted by Arthur Fiedler from 1970-1979. He did one program, a 50th anniversary celebration in April 1979. 

Evening At Pops included a wide variety of performances by the Boston Pops Orchestra, usually also featuring special guest performers. 

The premiere broadcast had guest Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, who read excerpts from the writings of President Lincoln as the orchestra played Aaron Copland's "Lincoln Portrait."

    Other selections included waltzes by Richard Rodgers and music from his "Victory at Sea"; John Philip Sousa's "Stars and Stripes Forever"; Morton Gould's "American Salute"; and a medley from Broadway's "Hair." 

NOTE: There are 21 duplication Evening of Pops broadcasts listed in the Archival Television Audio library. All were recorded, direct line, at the time of the original broadcast. Most of the entire series (1970-1979) has been preserved as pristine audio air checks (Approximately 115 different broadcasts). 

Representing Evening at Pops  classic programs there are none extant at The Library of Congress, or UCLA Film & TV Archive. Only four broadcasts representing the entire nine year run of the series are archived at The Paley Center (May 23, 1973, July 14, 1974, August 22, 1976, & June 24 1977).
The Chicago Film Archives has one issue of the series, a black and white 1" reel to reel video tape recording of an off the air 1978 broadcast.

 There are no complete broadcasts extant on YouTube with the exception of a May 1972 broadcast, with guest Leroy Anderson (still pictures seen over the audio track), and a poor video 46 minute excerpt of a broadcast with The Carpenters (Aug. 4, 1974). 

Evening at Pops has never been released on VHS of DVD to the public. WGBH, the Boston Pops Philharmonic archival library, and PBS's own archives have indicated that they have no copies. 

Arthur Fiedler was the conductor of the Boston Pops Orchestra for 50 years and one of the world's best‐known musical figures. He died July 10, 1979 at his home in Brookline, Massachusetts after a long illness. He was 84 years old.

After the death of Arthur Fiedler, to meet contractual obligations for the 1979 summer series of thirteen Evening At Pops broadcasts, seven re-runs were aired as well four new programs under Harry Ellis Dickson, Evening at Pops assistant conductor for 25 years. Dickson performed four new broadcasts, July 22, August 5th, 19th and September 9th.
One program during this final summer series was pre-empted (Aug. 26th). The last broadcast of this series was a re-run, televised  September 23, 1979. 

Evening at Pops remains a treasure trove of rich programming that portends to be forever locked away, as it has continued to be, the past forty years, with no potential in sight for its re-release in the future because of many factors, including music copyright issues.
