    is an audio documentary available at the WKSU website. It has the sounds and tapes from that weekend, including the infammatory comments by James Rhodes, then governor of Ohio. www.wksu.org/news/may4th This is interesting listening and it might help your show.

    •  Yeah, that's a good one. (0+ / 0-)

      I'm going to listen to it intently tonight and edit from it tomorrow. Problem is, my cooledit at home won't record (something wrong with my sound card) and it's only available as a Realplayer. In order to render it editable, I'm gonna have to dub it off at work and bring it home on my flashboard.
      Which is CERTAINLY worth doing! Thanks for that.

      And I'd have gotten away with it, too, if it hadn't been for those meddling kids.(-8.50\-7.13)

      I was in Kent every Friday nite spring of my senior year in high school (1969), and had good friends who were standing right there when the terrible deed occurred.  

      But let's also remember what happened at Augusta and Jackson State around the same time.  Those were people run over by the War Machine, too....

      •  remember all the other students killed (4+ / 0-)

        During the 1960s and 1970s, I think there were something like 28 students killed on college campuses by state officials. That's quite stunning and very few of them are remembered today.
