Two ideas that might help.
I remember that there were audio recordings made by FBIS in the Library of
Congress covering 45-60's period. I used them for a documentary on how Asia
saw the Cold War in Europe. If there is mention of McGee on Radio Peking in
Us media, it was probably transcribed by FBIS which worked together with BBC
Monitoring Service in that period. FBIS is no more, but I am sure their
archive still exists.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foreign_Broadcast_Information_Service . BBC
Monitoring feeds into the Written Archives of the BBC at Caversham Park,
Radio Peking is now China Radio International. http://english.cri.cn/ is the
website of the English language department.
http://english.cri.cn/about_us/contact.htm Not sure if they have audio, but
they may have scripts. If Radio Peking said it in the news, it was probably
a translation of the Xinhua news agency
Hope this helps,
