JFK special planned Nov. 23

In commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, Pittsburgh’s WRCT-FM (88.3) will broadcast: “November 22, 1963: Portrait in Sound” at 3 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 23, 2013.

Produced and narrated by WRCT host Jay Thurber, the hour-long program blends interviews with Carnegie Mellon University alumni (recorded in 2003), the hit songs of November 1963, original news broadcasts and Dallas police radio transmissions.

Thurber, a CMU alumnus, also hosts an oldies program, “Radio 9,” that airs from 12 to 3 p.m. on Saturdays, and features music from the 1960s.
