I’ve been re-reading the book “David O. McKay and the Rise of Modern Mormonism” and became interested in the warm relationship that existed between President Lyndon B. Johnson and President David O. McKay, which is described in the book, along with many other interesting things.

I was googling around a bit to see what else might come up about these two men and their interactions with each other and didn’t find much that I hadn’t already read in the book – but I was surprised to find that there is an mp3 (or WAV format) recording of a phone conversation between them.

The content of the conversation itself wouldn’t be considered all that extraordinary – it’s essentially two men trying to set up a lunch appointment. It just happens to be a lunch appointment at the White House between the President of the United States and the President of the LDS Church.

The mp3 is available here and the WAV is available here.

Along with the conversation with David O. McKay there are many other LBJ phone conversation recordings available as well.
