Episode Info:

For one brief shining moment in the early 1960s, John F. Kennedy impersonator Vaughn Meader
was on top of the world. He was the voice of the hit comedy album "The First Family" which
broke sales records and even won the Grammy for Album of the Year. Meader's impression
also stirred up controversy, forcing White House advisers to grapple with the impact of political
mimicry. In this episode Mo Rocca explores the story of this once-famous comic whose career
died the same day President Kennedy was assassinated. Warning: this episode contains
language that might be deemed offensive for some listeners.
