New audio tapes of JFK released
BOSTON -- Newly discovered audio tapes provide a look inside the life of John F. Kennedy just as he was getting his 1960 presidential campaign started.
The audio was recorded at a dinner party at the Kennedy home in Georgetown.
Two journalists asked the young senator about life, health, and politics.
The tapes were recorded just over three months before Kennedy's assassination in 1963.

Proofreaders are not used like they should so simple errors like this wouldn't happen. Internal evidence may mean that it was 1960 not 1963. It needs to be reviewed by a proofreader.

I'm a little confused by this post. It says the tapes were made at a party at the Kennedy's Georgetown home just before the 1960 campaign. It also makes reference to being taped several months before his assassination in 1963. I thought the Kennedys sold that house when they moved to the White House. Can you clarify the time line?

Well, which is it - just as the 1960 campaign was getting under way or July/August 1963?
