Programming Notes: September 2014

Did you know that Franklin Pierce was friends with Nathaniel Hawthorne? Or that Calvin Coolidge’s 1923 Sate of the Union was the first broadcast over radio? Or that Chester Arthur was the target of a ‘birther’ inquiry? These are just some of the gems found in Ken Davis’ new book Don’t Know Much About the American Presidents.
