Shep acknowledges Pete
During the "2nd Annual Parade of Humanity" show in the Spring of 1969 Shep spent the whole show reading the names of Fans who wrote in. Here's Pete's claim to fame.
Mike Todd Party

On October 17, 1957, Mike Todd, married to Elizabeth Taylor at the time, held a party at Madison Square Garden to Celebrate the first anniversary of "Around the World in Eighty Days" which he produced.

Occasionally Shep commented about this party, which he attended, on his shows.

Pete Delaney wrote this article for the April 8, 1994 edition of Movie Collector's World.
