Happy Fourth You Fatheads
By John Whalen
John writes in his blog:
This year I will do you all a favor and forego trying to ape Shepherd and simply let you hear the master tell the tale in his own words, in his own inimitable style. It's a classic.
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. ;-)"
Opening with a turkey joke Shep then recites "When Father Carves the Duck"
He tells about the time when he was caught between two flocks of turkeys on his way to a date and the mess that followed.
Shep sidesteps after the commercials to tell about his embarrassing moment on the Skitch Henderson Show.
Conclusion of the first turkey story, Shep arrives to pick up his date, Patty, at the drugstore where she worked.
The second turkey story is about the time when was living in Cincinnati, he was flown to Tennessee by a co-worker at the radio station to hunt wild turkeys.

"Can you imagine 4,000 years passing, and you're not even a memory?
Think about it, friends. It's not just a possibility. It is a certainty." - Jean Shepherd - 1975
