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.

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. ;-)"
