11:00-Midnight- One hour WGBH News retrospective. 

NOTE: The original archived complete 15 hour broadcast was recorded on 10 reels of 1/4" tape.  WGBH took the lead related to coverage, though it was basically hosted out of Washington, D.C. This affiliate station was more stable than many of  the others which were run mostly by college students. 

There are many compromised audio issues in the archived reels. Performances on stage in many cases were recorded at much lower volumes and many speeches were recorded "off mike." Similar issues related to the volume exist when reporters at the scene are talking and then vast changes in volume are heard when switching to anchors who would report on follow up details and the dissemination of events that were happening and scheduled to occur. 

The original recordings in some cases were poorly recorded in the first place at the time of the live broadcast. Whomever was controlling the sound mix of the varied broadcast audio feeds allowed, at times, for the ambiance of the crowd to overpower a performer on stage. 

There existed at the time during transfers, dubbing, etc. other recording issues related to the archived tapes themselves which created level inconsistencies. Also, it must be remembered that THE EDUCATIONAL RADIO NETWORK at that time were comprised of NOT seasoned and experienced professionals like some of the other personnel employees working at the major networks.

Many of the above issues, related above, have been improved by Phil Gries after many hours of  equalizing and remastering the entire broadcast. What now exists as archived at Archival Television Audio, Inc.is the best version known to exist.

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.

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.

WINS 1010 AM RADIO:  From the central desk in New York, Jerry Landay and Lew Fisher report their evaluations of what has just occurred during the past two hours. 

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.

IKE PAPPAS:
“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.”

Switching to MUTUAL NEWS: 
Bob Jett reports. “Jack Ruby will be arraigned tomorrow at 2:00pm on a writ of Habeas Corpus for pre-meditated murder that could bring the death penalty under Texas law. 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.”

A repeat tape recording is played airing earlier on the Mutual Broadcasting System…breaking in on news broadcasting of the pre-funeral ceremonies of President John F. Kennedy with the first word related to Oswald’s death. 

Announcer: “A report as recorded by Mutual News.”

 “THAT IS THE FIRST WORD AND MUTUAL LISTENERS HEARD IT FIRST.”

“We hear responses by the public related to today’s events by parents and relatives of Oswald who have all been absolved of any connection. 
A report broadcast at 12:41 Eastern Standard Time: “Oswald has gone into surgery.  His wife Myrna has not appeared at Parkland hospital. Jack Ruby still being questioned.”

WNEW AM RADIO: 
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.”

“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.

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.
