During the years my family lived in NY in the late sixties, early seventies, we listened to Jean Shepherd on the radio frequently. My recollection of the content, and in my opinion Mr. Shepherd’s greatest strength, was the rambling, entrancing story telling. This particular collection of 8 broadcasts consists of mainly commentary on topics of the day. Some of it is interesting in an anthropological vein, but it is also fairly grating to current sensibilities (being so white male-centric). I was hoping to hear some of those A Christmas Story-esque stories we’d listen to on the long drive to and from LI to visit relatives. This did not appear to me to be a particularly thoughtful curated collection/selection of those broadcasts.
