Airdate: Friday - October 9, 1970

Show Description
One of the countrys best-known raconteurs, a kind of latter-day Mark Twain with microphone, will play a return engagement at Montclair State College Wednesday. Jean Shepherd, who is heard six nights a week on radio by up to a million persons, will be presented by CLUB (College Life Union Board) at 8 p.m. in Memorial Auditorium. Mr. Shepherd, who claims to be the only verbal story teller in American mass media, made his first appearance at Montclair State three years ago. At that time, in response to audience demand, he spun-out his usual two-hour monologue to after midnight. Besides his radio work, he has acted for Broadway and Hollywood, been host of his own TV show, conducted university seminars on humor and satire, and taught a graduate course in media communications at New York University. He is the author of a novel, In God We Trust, All Others Pay Cash, and has written numerous short stones which have appeared in such magazines as Playboy and Mademoiselle. He has also written for the screen and stage and currently is at work on a not-entirely-humorous study of psychotic letters written anonymously to his radio station.
