2 "new" shows from 1975-76
Thanks to Al Holt, we have possibly 2 new shows added to the database. "Worst Night" from June 30, 1975 and "Rock Collector" from July 7, 1975 "Worst Night" is an army foxhole tale and Shep follows it with a story about cramming for a Chemistry test. "Rock Collector" deals with a story of a rock collector who has accumulated 60,000 pounds of assorted rocks followed by a tale of a fictitious Montreal Expos game where they score 1119 runs in one inning! Thanks to Gary in California for the dating. See "New Finds" to the right under "Audio Archives"

Happy Birthday Shep!
Shep would be 93 years old today. It's been 37 years since his last WOR show on April 1, 1977 and 59 years since he first started on WOR. Don't that make you feel old!

Anyone have the whole set?
The "Ronald Colman Gravy Boat"
One too many!
So what's the story behind this item? In "My Summer Story" one of the plot lines was about the "Great Gravy Boat Riot" Due to a delivery 'snafu' only gravy boats were being delivered to the theater each week and after a while everyone had way too many gravy boats and the women rebelled, throwing them at Leopold Doppler up on stage . A scene reminiscent of Alfred Hitchcock's "The Birds" attack scene. Were there actually Ronald Coleman gravy boats or were they made specifically for the movie? At least one of these has survived through the years and has shown up in a very unlikely place. . .
