Talk World Radio: Kennedy’s Peace Speech Set to Music


Talk World Radio is recorded on Zoom.

Here is this week’s video and all the videos on Youtube.


This week on Talk World Radio will be unusual. We’re going to listen to a piece of music, and it’s an unusual piece of music. It’s a speech set to music. President John F. Kennedy’s June 10, 1963 commencement address at American University is certainly the best speech ever made by a U.S. president and one that it would be hard to imagine a U.S. president giving today.

“Peace for All Time” was created by Irthlingz.
