Show Description
[ Courtesy: Pete Delaney - 10-01-2019 ] A letter from a Staten Islander says Shep should get a new theme song Odd sight on 37th Street Relevance Norman Mailer's Marylin Monroe book CONQUERORS OF THE AGES as a new theme? Cronkite of the ages Pompous Station Break Style is all LaTourette's disease Rhyming Guy Pun Problem Celebrating depravity Onassis Pun Alistair Cooke's America Jean Shepher'd s England The truth about English actors Shep's small office Why Jack Paar really got fired Necessity is the mother of the pink slip Shep plays cuts from "THE CONQUERS OF THE AGES" Ike tells Patton that even he has a boss Shep Is Attila The Hun Back to reality
Notes
Towards the end of the show, Shep plays two pieces from the "Conquerers of the Ages" album. He describes the two in detail while they are playing, but the one he describes as Alexander the Great, is actually the Gengis Khan cut from the same album. He correctly identifies and plays 'Atilla the Hun."
