Jean Shepherd

Jean Shepherd was a popular radio personality in New York City during the 1950s and 60s. His late night show featured several hours of him "riffing" about the world and telling stories about his childhood. The now classic Christmas movie "A Christmas Story" was based on books of stories that Shepherd wrote about his experiences growing up in Indiana. The voice narrating the movie is Jean Shepherd himself. This clip comes from a performance he did for college students.
