Jean Shepherd- Storyteller ,Humorist Jim Obermeyer Dadoo jobee@planetc.com I was a big Shephard fan back when he came on WOR-radio. He'd talk about nothing for 45 mins. straight. I remember when he did the Miller Beer commercial and he say "they don't call it High Life for nothing. He was also an expert on aircraft. His first book was "In God We Trust All Others Pay Cash. I believe it was on the best sellers list and the book never even existed, he would just tell everyone on the radio that he wrote the book and everyone believed him. He finally had to break down and write a book. The Red-Ryder BB gun story was in it. The movie The Christmas Story was based on it. I didn't know he passed, thanks for telling us.
