The making of Bobby Kennedy; then political memorabilia

    Listen 00:48:44

    Guests: Larry Tye, Jon Greenspan and Lisa Kathleen Grady

    We’ll take a step back in time this hour. First we’ll talk with author and journalist LARRY TYE about Bobby Kennedy’s career and his creation as a liberal icon. He’s the author of Bobby Kennedy:  The Making of a Liberal Icon.  Then, buttons, bumper stickers, T-shirts, and silly hats! There are plenty of novelties at the DNC. Curators JON GRINSPAN and LISA KATHLEEN GRADDY are snatching up the memorabilia for the Smithsonian National Museum of American History. They’ll stop by to tell Marty about their finds and the stories they tell of this election year and American politics.
