Shep reads "New Year's Eve" by Robert Service
He talks about the New Year's Eve shows he did in the past. Town Hall, Limelight, 1 Sheraton Square.
New Year's Eve at Grandma's with all the cousins. They watched the Times Square celebration and couldn't understand the 1 hour time difference. Granma brings out a tray of pickled herring - "For good luck!"
Outside they hear shooting and suddenly the street is crawling with police cars with their search lights pointing towards a third floor apartment across the street. On TV they see the report that the police are in a shootout with "Big Lefty McGoon" on the north side of Chicago. "Big Lefty" gets caught and the kids all celebrate midnight.
