An all-star cast of characters spoke to Donald Fagen as he grew up in New Jersey in the early 1960s: Jean Shepherd of WOR-Radio; the swanky Henry Mancini; WEVD’s Mort Fega, “the cool uncle you always wished you had.” And now musician/songwriter Fagen, co-founder of Steely Dan and author of Eminent Hipsters, covers it all, from the cultural figures and currents that shaped him to his college days and life on the road, the paranoid Cold War era, trips into New York City to hear jazz, mind-expanding years at Bard College, and the hilarious recent cross-country tour Fagen made with Boz Scaggs and Michael McDonald.
