Radio Again is pleased to present eight classic radio performances by raconteur Jean Shepherd from the archives of Hartwest Productions. With wit and wisdom, Jean Shepherd delves into the insatiable desire for shiny objects, and man a million years in the past -- and a million years in the future. In these previously uncirculated radio broadcasts you will also hear Shepherd’s remembrances of his mother’s dream of being a gun moll, his father’s quest for the perfect used car, and much more. Includes the following episodes: Jackdaw Dillinger Singing and Song Things Used to be Better The Mountain King History is All Around Us Transplanted in Time Wonders Includes liner notes by Eugene B. Bergmann, author of Excelsior, You Fathead! The Art and Enigma of Jean Shepherd. Humorist Jean Shepherd (1921-1999), creator/narrator of the holiday movie favorite A Christmas Story, and author of numerous other works of fiction and television, had a long and stellar career on radio and was heard most days during the period of 1955-1977 on WOR radio in New York, a clear-channel station heard along the Eastern seaboard and points west. Shepherd’s radio work was both unique and transitional in the development of today’s talk radio. Shepherd could talk, and talk he did, touching his listeners intimately as if speaking to an audience of one. Shepherd was inducted into the Radio Hall of Fame in 2005. The radio programs in this collection, long lost and forgotten, were created in the mid 1960’s by Shepherd for radio and television syndicator Hartwest Productions in the format heard on Shepherd’s WOR shows of the day, right down to his familiar Bahn Frei theme music. 1.

At the peak of the Golden Era of Hollywood, one of the film industry´s most popular genres was the screwball comedy, making stars out of young actresses like Jean Harlow and helping pave the way for future ones like Marilyn Monroe. But at the height of the era of the screwball comedy, the actress most associated with them was Jean Arthur, whose ability to portray everyday women made her incredibly popular in the 1930s and 1940s. As one critic put it, ´´No one was more closely identified with the screwball comedy than Jean Arthur. So much was she part of it, so much was her star personality defined by it, that the screwball style itself seems almost unimaginable without her.´´ Her seemingly effortless abilities helped get her cast in some of legendary director Frank Capra´s most famous films, including Mr. Deeds Goes to Town and Mr. Smith Goes to Washington. Capra´s films were some of the most critically acclaimed and popular of Depression-era America thanks to viewers being able to relate to the characters, and Arthur was integral in this, as film critic Charles Chaplin once explained, ´´To at least one teenager in a small town (though I´m sure we were a multitude), Jean Arthur suggested strongly that the ideal woman could be - ought to be - judged by her spirit as well as her beauty...The notion of the woman as a friend and confidante, as well as someone you courted and were nuts about, someone whose true beauty was internal rather than external, became a full-blown possibility as we watched Jean Arthur.´´ Arthur was an Oscar nominated actress and one of the richest women in the country in the mid-1940s, but she nevertheless retired after her contract with Columbia ended in 1944. While that seems like an odd decision, Arthur was notorious for wanting to avoid the spotlight and Hollywood´s celebrity culture, which led to her being branded a recluse. 1. Language: English.

Mackenzie Grant, daughter of a rich Wyoming cattle rancher, is an ugly duckling. She´s never been in love and never had a boyfriend. Heck, she´s never had a date! As a result, she finds comfort in her favorite world - the world of Jane Austen. After all, who wouldn´t dream of being the independent Elizabeth Bennett or of being wooed by the aristocratic Mr. Darcy? But when tragic news calls away their longtime friend and ranch hand, he´s replaced by a handsome stranger. Mackenzie soon finds herself swooning over Tyler Anderson. There are just two small problems: he hates Jane Austen, and his ex-girlfriend is the very person responsible for making Mackenzie´s school years miserable. Will she find love and a fairytale ending, or is she doomed for her story to end in tragedy? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kate van de Goor.

Humorist Jean Shepherd 1921-1999, perhaps now best known as the creator/narrator of the perennial holiday movie favorite ´´A Christmas Story´´, had a long career on radio which culminated during the period of 1956-1977 when he was heard most days on WOR radio in New York, a clear-channel station heard along the Eastern seaboard and points west. Shepherd´s radio work was both unique and transitional in the development of today´s talk radio. Shepherd could talk, and talk he did, touching his listeners intimately as if speaking to an audience of one. Shepherd was inducted into the Radio Hall of Fame in 2005. In ´´Don´t Be a Leaf´´, Jean Shepherd muses on the impact of dirty glasses, shopping for cars with the old man, flyswatters, growing up with the White Sox and the great divide between Southside and Northside baseball fans. Shepherd asks the questions: Are you the rider or the ridden? What is the Master Plan Illusion and what is your Master Plan? So, friends, sit back and enjoy this collection. Keep smiling, keep your knees loose, and don´t give them a sitting target! 1. Language: English. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/rt/radi/000826/rt_radi_000826_sample.mp3.
