My best friend Carl turned me on to Jean Shepherd when I was 12 years old. He was on WOR at 11PM. It was well after my bedtime. In those days we had no headphones so I tucked the radio under 3 layers of blankets to muffle the sound.It's a wonder I dcidn't suffocate. My mom probably wondered why I stopped arguing at about going to bed.

I grew up in NJ -- it seemed like everybody I knew was a Sheperdophile, with my older cousin Chris the biggest fan of all. I don't know how many nights I tuned in WOR to hear JS's ramblings! In the early 70's, while a college student at the Univ of Rochester, NY, he came to do a guest stand-up session. The place was jammed with all the students from the NY metro area. A fantastic evening that I'll never forget -- unfortunately, the only time I got to hear him in person. Years later, my wife and I saw Christmas Story in the theater as one of our first dates (she lived in Cleveland, and used to shop at Higbees!). Now our kids have read my yellowed copies of "Fig Newtons" and "Wanda," and committed "Christmas Story" to memory! Flick Lives in our famly -- and so does Jean!
