I've read in quite a few places of a debate having been held in 1934 between Huey Long (U.S. Senator and former Governor of Louisiana, and founder of the short-lived Share Our Wealth program) and Norman Thomas (leader of the Socialist Party of America).  I've been scouring the Web in vain to find a transcript of it or (dare I hope) a video or audio recording.  I was wondering if anyone around here knows whether or not this debate was ever recorded in any form, and if so, where a copy of it might be found today.  Instant-gratification, free-of-charge online sources are preferred, but a book would of course be fine, too.  Looking for it in its entirety if possible, not just choice excerpts.

I would look for collections of speeches of Huey Long or Norman Thomas.  I would think that some source (biographical) on one or the other would refer to the event, and from that you might track down a source.  A radio broadcast might exist, I doubt that there would be anything on film, but I could be wrong.  I mean if you consider that talkies started in ?1928?, there would not be enough time for talkie movie cameras to spread throughout society to film such an event.
