We continue our celebration of Marian Anderson, who, 50 years ago, became one of the first recipients of the Presidential Medal of FreedomOn December 6th, 1963 President Kennedy was scheduled to award the legendary contralto our nation’s highest civilian honor; LBJ presided over the ceremony in his absence. Around this very same time, Marian was also in the midst recording a bizarre yet remarkable ode to her own kitty-cat for Folkways Records. You've heard the flip side -- tune-in this week for the thrilling conclusion!
