I would like to hear from anyone who won any of the various items auctioned on eBay over the last few months, from the Lois Nettleton estate. In the interest of preserving as much of Shepherd history as possible, I would like to get as much information as possible. I understand many people spent considerablesums for these things and nothing will be posted on the website without permission, and anything that is permitted will, of course, be credited appropriately.

New Look for flicklives.com
I've given a facelift to the website along with adding or updating a lot of the content. I've tried to get all the bugs out, but If something doesn't work right, let me know.

Serving the Shep Community for 9 years
9 years ago today, flicklives.com was born, answering the call of Shep fans looking for somewhere to hear Max Schmid's early morning Mass Backwards Show, and to learn more about Shep.
Over those years, through a lot of research, and the generosity of fans who contributed articles, photos, tapes, and memories to help build the site from the dozen pages it started as, it has grown to the hundreds that make it up now.
To all those who have helped - THANKS!
