Document Type



The original tape has been copied onto a surrogate cassette tape and digitized into high-quality mp3 format. The duplicate cassette copy contains all the material recorded on the originals which may include extraneous content such as advertisements, public service announcements, background noise, and background voices that were inadvertently recorded when the tape machine was left on. The mp3 file was edited so that only the subject matter, as indicated on the title, was retained.


The recording contains an interview of Senator Chafee on the radio news show "Press Conference" by journalists Harry McKenna and M. Charles Bakst. Subjects include the 1982 senatorial campaign, social security tax, Israeli-Egyptian relations, Bechtel Corporation contributions, and the Rhode Island economy.
