Shep at Drew University
According to Mark Adams who was there - "As I recall, the show started late afternoon and the bar was closed... just set up as a coffeehouse. I think that the crowd averaged 150-175 students and faculty with students coming and going to study. It felt very similar to the Limelight show that my parents took me to see in the mid 60s. My favorite part of the show is the Q&A session at the end. The obnoxiously loud whistling was my own. ;-)"

New Features
Cross - Referencing
Two new sections have been added and affect most of the pages on the website. These are "Plots / Story Lines" and "General Topics." The 'Plots / Story Lines' section covers where the various items were used- movies, books, columns, radio, etc. and the 'General Topics' section covers things that Shep would often talk about on his radio shows such as Baseball, Poetry, Og and Charlie, etc. The purpose here is to cross reference the uses of the various subjects across all the mediums Shep used. This is a massive project that is going to take quite some time, but it will contine to grow and inform daily.
