6 June 1944. The D-Day invasion, Normandy, France.
AS IT WAS REPORTED BY THE NATIONAL [USA] RADIO MEDIA.
Thanks to the tip from Al.
I recommend highly without qualification or reservation. Listen
"Complete Broadcast Day D-Day [CBS]"
"D-Day Broadcasts: Compare and Contrast."
"It's fascinating to listen to CBS News' careful, scrupulously-vetted accounts of the Normandy landings (often based on confusing, fragmentary information). Compared with modern media debacles . . . this is exemplary work---should be mandatory listening for student journalists."
"Complete Broadcast D-Day [NBC]"
"Subject: What Was It Like On June 6, 1944? Listen To These Podcasts!"
"Because these are recordings of the original live news reports, you can learn how the American people were informed of the D-Day invasion."
". . . . On this particular occasion, the producers of that program decided to rebroadcast excerpts of radio news coverage of that day."
MODERN JOURNALISTS AND JOURNALIST STUDENTS AND ESPECIALLY THOSE IN THE BROADCAST MEDIA COULD BENEFIT GREATLY BY LISTENING TO THESE BROADCASTS? I MIGHT VENTURE SO!
