"Destry Rides Again"
St. John Terrell's Lambertville Music Circus
In 1961 Shep performed in "Destry Rides Again" at the Lambertville Music Circus. The show played only a few weeks because the Music Circus has a long line-up of performers and performances that rotated through the big tent (Yes, tent!) over the years. Check out the website created by Jon Case, who worked both on stage and behind the scenes back in the 60s.

Jean Shepherd reflects on Kennedy
After a long, sad weekend following the assassination of John F Kennedy on Nov 22, 1963, Jean Shepherd took to the airwaves for his first show back on Monday Nov 25 with a somber, reflective program. For the entire week he declined to play his jaunty theme song, and took several days to discuss the American scene and mood. Thanks largely to Shep fan Jean Tepper, we have three of these programs that were taped from FM over the air at the time of broadcast. The first show is actually a composite of three different recordings, starting with a very poor copy which was the most complete, tagging on a bit more from a slightly better recording, then the bulk of the show is from the very nice sounding copy from Jean Tepper. The other two recordings are flawed due to signal interference that comes and goes throughout the broadcast, but despite the whistling and hooning, Shep's words come through. Two of these programs have been aired in the past over WBAI, the third has never been replayed as far as I can recall. During the coming week you will get a chance to hear them all on the radio or on the web. The first show from Monday Nov 25, 1963 will be played on the Saturday morning show on yesterdayusa.com. The Thanksgiving show "Shadows and Haiku" will be aired on WBAI on Sunday evening. At some point during the week I will upload the third show to Mixcloud - this show was from either Tuesday or Wednesday of that week, and I call it "The Ugly American". I hope you will listen. (If you miss these, they will be archived here in the "Max Schmid presents Jean Shepherd" section)
