Reagan Radio Commentaries

Modified: Saturday, 25 October 2014 09:02 by admin - Uncategorized
Shortly after leaving the governorship of California, Reagan was approached to do radio, 3-4 minutes per day, 5 days per week. He did these shows from 1975 until 1979, with a break of roughly 9 months in 1976 while he challenged President Gerald Ford for nomination as the Republican candidate for President in the 1976 election.

Several hundred of the commentaries were produced during the time, ranging in topics from the aftermath of the Vietnam War to the "Modern Little Red Hen."

A selection of these commentaries can be heard in the audiobook "Reagan In His Own Voice" and can be read in "Reagan In His Own Hand." Reagan's notes and records of the commentaries can be found at the Stanford's Hoover Institute.
