Jean Shepherd

A classic and funny satiric monologue from 1962 by the great radio humorist / satirist / storyteller Jean Shepherd.

Shepherd pokes fun at American life--including our crazy junk, our unrealistic "realistic" TV shows; our love of doing things just to see if they can be done; the rationalizations we concoct to justify space flights and war; and our favorite rhetorical question, "Who's covering up?"

Condensed by--and with a brief introduction by--KD.
Shepherd's monologue was originally broadcast on September 19, 1962, on station WOR AM-FM, New York. Thanks to flicklives.com for the original 45-minute recording.

"New World Notes" is produced under the auspices (Latin for "Freedom of Information Act") of WWUH-FM, a community service of that beacon of light in darkest Connecticut, the University of Hartford.
