Listen Download | podcast

Jean Shepherd, a notable radio presence in 60s N.Y. radio, tells about his youthful trials and tribulations trying to become a class A ham radio operator, accompanied by our real ham radio jammers recorded from the amateur air. In ’63, a real disc jockey actually locks himself in his studio, refuses to leave or open the door, and plays the same song over and over in an attempt to get a raise from his boss. We have influential music of the era, from the blues to Tiny Tim, and the saucers return.
