Memories of JFK by Peter Yarrow

Peter Yarrow, 1/3 of Peter, Paul & Mary, has been a folk-singer and social activist for over a half-century. He did a solo concert on April 18, 2014 at The Egyptian Theatre in Park City, Utah.

Kennedy, first-lady Jackie Kennedy, and other celebrities and notables…enjoy this story. I sure did!
