Jean Shepherd on Archive.org

I don't know how long he has been there but archives of Jean's WOR shows are now available on archive.org. Who is Jean Shepherd you may ask? Have you ever seen A CHRISTMAS STORY? He is the original author/scriptwriter/narrator of the movie that is based on vivid retellings from his childhood memories. Highly recommended.


(Compilations of holiday episodes which include many of the stories that inspired the movie can be found here (and here) (and here).)


  1. This is good to know. I read the book, it's fairly different than the movie, especially the bully part.

  2. Many of the Christmas shows have nothing to do with the movie but I always enjoy listening to Jean anyway! I have read most of his books and bits and parts of the movie are scattered throughout.

    There were a couple more movies based on his stories but I have yet to see them:

    Ollie Hopnoodle's Haven of Bliss
    It Runs in the Family
