The inimitable Jean Shepherd, perhaps best known for writing and narrating the riotous A Christmas Story, talking about the Miracle Mets, who had won the World Series on the 16th, a little more than a week earlier. Shepherd, a life-long Mets fan, devoted his entire 45 minute segment on WOR to the Mets. It seems apropos to include this on Christmas with TBS' non-stop showing of A Christmas Story. Listening to Shepherd, the consummate storyteller, is the perfect way to ring in the holidays. Editor's Note: at about 6:30, Shepherd talks about the now defunct Expos, referring to them as "the new Mets." An interesting take on that team from Montreal which, by all accounts, should still be there. Even more so, his commentary on the "selective memory" of New York fans remains as valid today as it was 41 years ago.
