Hello,

Taking a stab here in case anyone knows if these broadcasts related to the burning of the Normandie (USS Lafayette) exist.

2/9/1942, WNYC: Speech given by Fiorello La Guardia in the afternoon about subway fares. It was cut short by someone telling him that the Normandie was on fire. 

2/9/1942, WMCA, Jimmy Powers, show is about the Normandie fire with call-ins

I’ve checked NARA, LOC, WNYC, and RadioGoldIndex so any information on these or any other broadcasts related to the Normandie fire would be appreciated.  Or other avenues to pursue.

Thank you all.

Michael Dolan
