June 20: Reagan give Wynette big kiss

On this date in History ... June 20, 1983:

Ronald Reagan gives a speech at a Republican Fundraising Dinner in the (Jackson) Mississippi Coliseum where he tells one of his many humorous stories, this one about a Republican campaigning in Democratic territory. (see clip). Reagan is said to have been a big fan of Tammy Wynette who sang at this fundraiser. The President gave the country singer a big kiss, and a photo of it ended up in The Globe.
