Retired MidWeek three-dotter Eddie Sherman will tell some great stories at the Waikiki Community Center this Wednesday from 10 to 11 a.m. Everyone’s invited to hear the many tales Eddie has to tell - for instance, did you know that his first career choice was comedy?

In fact, before he started in radio, he toured the East Coast comedy circuit with his partner, another well-known comic of the day, Norm Crosby.
