Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Ronald Reagan

History • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2001

A collection of radio commentaries made by Ronald Reagan from 1975 to 1979, this is an excellent production of broadcasts made before he became president. Transcripts of these broadcasts, which were written by Reagan, are found in two related books, REAGAN IN HIS OWN HAND and STORIES IN HIS OWN HAND. Those books also show photos of the original scripts, as well as Reagan’s editorial marks. The aim of those books and this audiobook is to show that Reagan presented many core political ideas even before he became known as "The Great Communicator." Reagan’s delivery is almost always flawless, although the original recordings are not in perfect condition. A narrator tells what is happening at the time of each broadcast, and we hear directly from those who were close to Reagan, such as his wife and key advisors, at the time of these recordings. M.L.C.
