Huey Long's Senate speeches became legendary, as he packed the public galleries. According to one Washington tourist guide, top stops were "White House, Monument, Capitol — and The Kingfish".
Below are selected speeches by Huey Long, many of which were also delivered on the radio and mailed to Share Our Wealth club members.
The following speeches were scanned from original Congressional Record copies and converted to PDF text.
Huey Long was the first politician, other than President Franklin D. Roosevelt, to use national radio broadcasts to promote his ideas to a larger audience.
After offering bills in the Senate, he purchased radio time with the National Broadcasting Company to explain his proposals to the American public, bypassing the usual filters and criticism of the conservative newspapers.
Huey developed a following of an estimated 25 million loyal listeners, who started 27,000 Share Our Wealth clubs across the nation.
