The state-of-the-art unit measures 32.75″ x 16″ x 13.5″, and includes three records: Jackie Gleason presents Champagne, Candlelight and Kisses; Music for Dining by the Melachrino Strings and Orchestra; and Some Enchanted Evening by Alfred Apaka. In fine condition. Provenance: Lot #415, Documents and Artifacts Relating to the Life and Career of John F. Kennedy, Guernsey’s, March 18-19, 1998. The Guernsey’s catalog documents the history of this piece: "John F. Kennedy took this stereo with him all over the world so that he could listen to his favorite music wherever he travelled. A Master Sergeant was assigned to transport the the stereo in advance of President Kennedy's arrival, and to set it up for him at his destination." Also includes a letter of provenance from Kennedy's personal secretary Evelyn Lincoln to noted JFK collector Robert L. White: "The record 'Jackie Gleason presents Champagne Candlelight and Kisses' which you have in your possession, was one of the records, along with his stereo, [which] would accompany him on many of his trips across the country and foreign trips during his Presidency."
