Stephen Foster Memorial Radio Program: Stephen Foster Week (30-minute version)
- One reel to reel recording (27:47 minutes). In 1964, Stephen Foster Memorial Week was celebrated from 1/12 and 1/19. The 13th was the centennial of Foster's death. Evelyn Foster Morneweck was the nearest living relative of Foster (his niece). There is also a 15-minute version. These radio programs were created in the early 1960s by the Stephen Foster Memorial to promote the park and its activities, as well as to educate the public about Stephen Foster and Florida folk music.
