"Channel Cat in the Middle Distance"
Long lost documentary
Back in 1966, when Jonathan Sanger was a graduate student at the University of Pennsylvania's Annenberg School of Communications, he made a film with his classmate Al Tedesco, called Channel Cat in the Middle Distance. Thanks to Jonathan who preserved the 16mm film and has since digitized it, we are able to see some very rare footage of Shep at work and play.

Remembering Shep
"I was this kid see. . ."
It has been 15 years since Jean Parker Shepherd passed away. He once said: "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." Only 3,985 more years to go! Thanks to the many fans who recorded his shows, we will be able to enjoy Shep's distinct voice and form of humor for many more years. Shep has the distiction of having succeeded in just about every form of medium in the entertainment business. Radio, TV, Records, Books, Magazines, Live Stand-up Performances, Off-Broadway Acting, and even Commercials were all in his portfolio.
  Listen to some Shep. . .
