Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
This collection contains sound recordings, transcripts, correspondence, and other documents related to the radio broadcast series Viewpoint with Ronald Reagan and Ronald Reagan Radio Commentary as well as the LP records Ronald Reagan: The Great Moments (aborted) and Ronald Reagan: On the Air. O'Connor Creative Services produced both the radio series and the LPs. A variety of domestic and international topics are covered including the economy, oil, guns, religion, taxes, energy, and welfare. Era-specific subjects such as conflict in Southeast Asia (Vietnam, Cambodia) and the Torrijos-Carter Treaties that returned control of the Panama Canal to Panama receive considerable attention.
The series Viewpoint with Ronald Reagan and Ronald Reagan Radio Commentary were produced by O'Connor Creative Services and concern political conditions in the United States and abroad. The titles Viewpoint with Ronald Reagan and Ronald Reagan Radio Commentary were used at different times to describe the series: Viewpoint for the programs produced in 1975 and 1976 and Ronald Reagan Radio Commentary for the programs produced in 1977 and 1978. Programming was halted during the times Reagan was a declared candidate for the presidency: the first occurrence being November 1975, resuming September 1, 1976 after he lost the nomination; the second being November 1979, when he declared for the 1980 presidential election. Programming ceased altogether following the 1980 election.
