A tribute to the ad-lib art of late-night radio storyteller Jean Shepherd. Includes a condensed version of one of his great monologues, from October 1965. It's a humorous tale of grenade-replica cigarette lighters, the real George Washington, crime in real life vs. on TV, and life among the rednecks in Covington, KY, in the 1950s. Intro by KD.
This is a rerun of NWN #52 (February 2009). Now available in a high-fidelity 192 kbps MP3.
