This last section is the most interesting, also the most moving, because the samples generally directly involve Jean Shepherd's story himself, but also sometimes other people, other times, other places.
The first one is almost out of topic. It's a small quizz:
The first of those two clips is very long (30') and is a large part of a broadcasting called 'Jew's harp and Nose flutes'. Both tell the Shep's story with nose flutes and Jew"s harps:
This is long (10') clip, about getting scary by playing the cuckoo... But I'm not 100% sure the sounds were made with a nose flute... (with reverb!)
In 1965, Jean Shepherd went to Amazon (Peru side) and met native tribes. He had brought a kazoo, a Jew's harp and a nose flute with him...
The first clip is part of a radio show (09/16), the second one too (09/17), but the excerpt was recorded in Peru, and the last one is a part of a public conference (09/18). They are great archives...
For having promoted the nose flute in many of his radio shows, played and taught our noble instrument to people of Amazon, Jean Shepherd is inducted to the Nose Flute Hall of Fame, in the "Promoters" section, with the Honorary Degree!---
