5.0 out of 5 stars Just what you remembered! And just what you want..., January 4, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Jean Shepherd: Life Is (Classic Radio Humor) (Audio CD)
At thirteen I would huddle by the radio, lights out, waiting for 10:15 PM and WOR at the ready: the music began and so did a great 45' of how to look at the crazy world.

My wife got me many of these for Christmas this year, and I listen to them in the car. The problem is that I have to pull off the road sometimes because I am laughing so hard at the things I had forgotten--there are some great pieces here and some great moments.

The only thing I miss is that sort of "Ahhhh..." you used to get at the end of the music at the close of the show.

Well worth the price!!!!

Only regret? You don't get many of the older ones--I guess they weren't keeping tapes. So, these tend to be more mid-60's kinds of things.

These syndicated shows were only made during a two year period in the mid 1960s. There are many hundreds of Shepherd shows from the late 1950s until 1977 available at little cost through several sources including ebay and through links on the Shepherd website flicklives.
