Tonight I had the pleasure of attending my first Sonic Soiree with an impressive crew of local audio producers. Once a month, we eat good food and we listen to good radio. Tali Singer shared a hilarious piece called LBJ and the Helium-filled Astronaut (it starts a bit before minute twelve). LBJ is talking to a man who has been hanging out in a helium chamber for quite some time (and has all the fun results associated with helium inhalation). Ol' Lyndon gets on the line and is 100% syrupy sweet. Thanking the astronaut for all his efforts and for being a good American, of course. This got me to thinking that I could really use some syrupy sweetness from such an influential character...
Enter today's sixty seconds. A smattering of presidential affirmations taken from a dozen or so conversations that LBJ had with various people in November of 1963.
Thanks, Lyndon. You're not so bad yourself.
