Radio-TV personality Jean Shepherd — who when on mike lays it out with hoarse, fraught whispers of excitement — has been in the nostalgia biz long before the current infatuation with the '30's and '40's; and his sorties into an Indiana boyhood, with essentially the same persona as in In God We Trust All Others Pay Cash (), are still hilarious, tender and rooted in copacetic recognitions. Wanda Hickey's Night of Golden Memories is a universal (and achingly funny) orchestration of Midwestern puberty rites, from the gut-wrenching playground antics of one Delbert Bumpus, to the supernal glow surrounding unapproachable high school beauty Daphne Bigelow, to the memorable disaster that was Shepherd's (and everyone else's) junior prom.
