Jean Shepherd and Leigh Brown - KRAB

Interviewed by Greg Palmer, Lorenzo W Milam and Helen Norton


AND A SHEPHERD WILL LEAD THEM - An interview with Jean Shepherd, author, raconteur, humorist, comedian, actor, pilot, essayist, hunter, fisher, story-teller, and one of the best radio men in the country. This interview was first broadcast live the afternoon of October 23, when Jean was in town plugging his most recent book, Wanda Hickey's Night of Golden Memories and Other Disasters. Also present was Leigh Brown, who has produced Jean's show on WOR for the past nine years, and to whom Wanda Hickey is dedicated. The interviewers in order of submission are Lorenzo W Milam, Greg Palmer, and Helen Norton. Shepherd fans are having a big month on KRAB, with the Christmas festival (see December 25) and the new Shepherd schedule . This program was made possible by a grant from Purina Chick Chow.
