Eventually, he looked into the story himself. ALSO TODAY: Jim Sadwith had written the script for his high school play based on J.D. Salinger’s classic “The Catcher and the Rye,” when he decided to look for the reclusive author to get permission to do the play; and Mark Hagerty tells host Dick Gordon how New York City shaped his father and about their special meeting place under Grand Central Station’s clock tower.
