Classic broadcast from 1965 by radio's great humorist-satirist-storyteller, Jean Shepherd. Condensed by K.D.

With wit and humor, Shepherd reflects on adolescent psychology ... on being "shot down" ... on traumatic experiences ... and on the absurd prose on the back of packages--notably Official World's Fair Toothpicks. Then he tells a story from his childhood: how he snuck into a Ukrainian-American picnic, pretended to speak Ukrainian, and--to his later regret--consumed 17 hamburgers.
Originally broadcast on WOR AM-FM on April 1, 1965. Original recording courtesy of Radio Veronica. This 45-minute recording is available on (though not easily extracted from) radio4all.net--see r4a's note at top of page.

This is the fourth Jean Shepherd broadcast condensed and aired again on New World Notes. A search on "Jean Shepherd" should locate the other three.

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