I remember this well !

About a week after the disaster, we had a bluegrass concert. One of the songs requested was "ANGEL BAND" :

Come thou Angel Band
Come and around me stand-
Carry me on your snow white wings
To my immortal home !

When the group finished the song, there was hardly a dry eye in the house...

I worked at Johnson Space Center in those days, and most of the folks I knew there at the time honestly felt that warnings were deliberately ignored so that Reagan could allude to the "first teacher in space" passing overhead during the speech.
