A Christmas Story, as told by author Jean Shepherd

24 Dec

One of my favorite movies is “A Christmas Story,” a 1983 comedy about a boy who just wants a bb gun for Christmas. It touches memories of childhood that are dear to me, and it’s funny.  I wish they’d play it every Christmas instead of some of the crap they show now, but I guess I should  get cable if I want to sit around watching the boob tube all the time.

But you can listen to the original story that  became the movie, as told by the author, radio announcer Jean Shepherd. Remember radio? Remember when disc jokey’s had to have a personality? This guy was great. And, it’s his story, so he reads it as if he’s re-living the events.

So, sit back and listen, enjoy – I love the ads.
