Default Re: Where were you when JFK was shot? (Gord was here)

I thought that I had posted my story here but I cannot see it. Anyway it was a Friday evening and I was working in Derby in the middle of England but that weekend I had arranged to take my new girlfriend the 200 miles south to meet my parents. At about 7PM UK time we were driving in the Coventry area and as usual I had Radio Luxembourg playing on 208 metres as it was the only radio station then playing popular music. suddenly I realised that the pop music had been replaced by serious classical music (most unusual for RL), then the disk jockey came on and reported the news from Dallas. What a shock!!
