Jean Shepherd Revisited! A Christmas Story - The Musical Should Not Be Missed!
by: Ann Liguori
Ann Liguori who interviewed Shep in 1997 for WFAN wrote a review about the ACS Musical for the CBS New York website: The Holidays are officially upon us. Let the festivities continue! And although the Knicks and the Giants should put a smile on your face with their play of late, if you're looking for a show that delivers a winning outcome every time and assures fun for the entire family, I highly recommend you see A Christmas Story - The Musical, playing at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre. . .

More Early Shep radio
Thanks to John Edwards for this heads up on an ad for WSAI which shows Shep working for the station in 1947. It was previously known he worked there from July 1949 to March 1951. The earliest listing I could find was from January 30, 1947 and the latest was June 3, 1947, however the ad was from August 25, 1947 indicating he was working there as part of the daytime lineup. We do know that he worked at WKRC in March 1949, It was also said he worked as an announcer for WCKY in 1948 but I have not been able to confirm that.

But as Shepherd admitted later the casting was terrible. Fast forward to early 2012 when it was announced there would be a sequel. Very little was known about it and it wasn't until the trailer hit that we had any inkling as to what it was about. Now we know...
