Hello Pam and others, especially Ray:

I also really enjoyed the hurricane podcasts and am crazy about collecting historical archives. I have always looked for soundclips from Hurricanes since, as a midwesterner, I never experienced them first-hand. At night, I could listen to WWL and found it fascinating to hear about hurricanes as they approached. However, I was a kid at the time and didn't have a tape recorder of my own.

I have several hours of recordings of the JFK assassination as it unfolded and several days of recordings from NPR after the 9/11 incident. If you are interested, Pam, about working out something to get copies, let me know ... if that is even legal--<Grin>.

Sunshine, snowy and cold today here in Austria, but rumor has it that Spring is just around the corner.

Take care,

Hi Ray,

Just listened to your hurricane podcast and it sure was interesting.
It sure did re-emphasize how emphaticly people were warned to get out
well in advance. And then what did the stubborn people who decided to
stay do--turn around and blame the government later. I don't know what
part of leave they didn't understand. I wonder what happened to that
old lady who insisted that she had ridden others out and would this
one as well.

Great quality recordings of the broadcasts too. I wondered, do you
have archives of other historical broadcasts such as those after the
Oklahoma City bombing and 9-11? I'd sure be interested in hearing them
if you did, or do you know of a place on the internet with such

Looking forward to Part two..
