Jean Shepherd

Jean Shepherd  is hero of mine. As a child I frequently listened to his nightly show on WOR radio. The lights would be out. The radio by my bed turned on with the volume low. And Shep would tell stories, sing songs, explore ideas  with a voice filled with such energy and intensity. Oh, and his laugh, there is nothing in this world like Shep’s laugh. I followed his career, read his books, watched his different television shows, but for me the best moments were  listening to Shep on the radio.
