This time, in honor of Women's History Month, Lady Bird Johnson: Legacy of a First Lady, written, produced, directed, and narrated by Joe Bevilacqua.

One of the most licensed audiobooks on The Public Radio Exchange and iTunes, Lady Bird Johnson: Legacy of a First Lady is veteran NPR producer Joe Bevilacqua's award-winning audio documentary examining the challenges and achievements of this extraordinary woman. The hour combines never-before-released archive audio, gleaned from thousands of hours of recordings housed at the Lyndon Baines Johnson Library and Museum, period news broadcasts, private conversations with Lyndon Baines Johnson, and the words of Lady Bird Johnson from an interview that has never before been released to the public.


"Lady Bird did such wonderful work. I really enjoyed hearing the back story behind the Hy-way beautification act passed during the Johnson Administration."

**** Informational, Inspiring ... a love letter to a woman admired ...

"'Lady Bird Johnson: Legacy of a First Lady,' written, narrated and produced by Joe Bevilacqua, is a love letter to a woman admired not only by her fellow Texans but also by the world. The one-hour program was among four winners in the best documentary category at The New York Festivals."

"Informational, Inspiring. This is an excellent, uplifting journey through Lady Bird Johnson's life, and her growth and transition to first lady under tragic conditions. It's wonderful to hear her voice, rendered here in excerpts from interviews she's given and speeches she's made. It is especially poignant to hear a portion of her first audio diary entry, made the day after JFK's assassination. Nuanced choices of music are a production plus, but the strength is in the spoken word. Wisely chosen excerpts create a rich experience. The hour contains a wide range of voices, from historians to those who worked with her or know her, and they pinpoint her influence on LBJ, and on the capital, and the nation -- particularly in the areas of environment, race, and education. She truly is a force for good."
