To this day, controversy still surrounds these meetings. Did the visual aspect of television interfere with the integrity of the candidate's words? Did the medium become more important than the message?
This compilation contains the complete audio recordings of all four of the landmark debates complemented by narration by Sander Vanocur (one of the original panel of journalists during the first debate), enabling listeners to hear, word for word, history in the making and to draw his or her own conclusions about who won this face-off between two of America's most noted Presidents.
"This complete recording of an historically important set of debates...is livelier, while at the same time more civil, than our current presidential debates. Even though the original Mutual Broadcast radio recordings are used, the audio is quite good. Vanocur provides helpful and interesting background information in his narration." (AudioFile)

Good quality, interesting history
For the most part the draw for listening to this is definitely the educational aspect. It's not a story, and you can't complain about the narrators. Heck, you can't even really complain about the audio quality. But, for as short as it is I found it to be a really cool perspective on this period of American history. Max gives this a "Read with Confidence" deal of approval.
