Commentaries on the CBS Radio Network
In 1974 it was announced that CBS radio was putting together a series of 4 to 9 minute segments titled "A Sense of American Humor" hosted by Roger Mudd. Jean Shepherd was one of the celebs asked 'what makes Americans laugh and how does it help us. It is unclear if this was ever aired. Read an article from the November 21, 1974 Anniston AL Star here.
 

Sometime in or around 1977-79 Shep did a series of short commentaries for CBS Radio.
They were aired 4 time daily - 10:50am, 2:40pm, 6:50pm and 10:40pm

25 of those have shown up, but little about them is known.

If you remember them and can provide additional information as to how many he did, dates, times, etc. please email me.
