Shep Music
Major source found
After a lot of research and listening to scratchy records, I feel that I have found a lot of the 'unknown' music Shep used in the 1963 and later years. It is an album put out by the Waldorf Record Corp in Harrison, NJ called "50 Great Moments in Music." I have identified 9 tracks he used on his shows and as I listen to more shows that number may increase. Shep would have qickly noted that although the album is 50 Great Moments. . ., there are 51 tracks!

Turkeys and Thanksgiving
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.
