Jean Shepherd WOR-NY .

Here it is, almost to the minute from it's original and only airing fifty years ago tonight. Jean Shepherd's second or third show back the week following the JFK assassination. I have never rebroadcast this one, so you are all hearing it for the first time since that night. Shep did away with his theme for the week, and on this show discusses the trend in criticism to blame America for the world's ills, and never point out the flaws of other countries. This is something WBAI never got over, even to this day. You'll also find out why he hates Woody Allen!

If you find this show worthy of discussion, check out the Shep fan page on Facebook.com called "I'm a fan of Jean Shepherd", and if you like the program, head on over to sheptapes.com (PLUG!!)
