The source for this program, now almost 30 years old, is basically a running monologue by the late humorist about raising teenagers. It's dated by references to refrigerators that need defrosting and 10-cent phone calls, but it's still interesting because kids trying to become adults continue to present the same problems. Parents looking for more than entertainment won't find much advice or guidance, but none is promised, so they may as well just enjoy the listen. The accomplished reader handles the dialogues with an amazing range of voices but can't overcome writing that often leaves one waiting for a punch line that isn't there.
