Show Description
Shep Fan Jay Powell went to college in Rochester, and he was elated when news came that Shep would be a speaker at the school. At the college radio station Shep commented about his headphones: "The smaller the station, the bigger the cans!" Thanks to Dean Dexter who worked for the "Reporter" and provided some of the pictures and background info.
Notes
According to Dean Dexter who was working for the "Reporter" at the time and is in some of the photos: Shepherd spoke at the "old campus" in downtown Rochester in November of 1967 (school year 1967-1968), and a second time in April of 1969 (school year 1968-1969). He wrote across his article in that playboy we are looking at: "To Dean Dexter, a true bastard, Jean Shepherd." Magazine and the autograph have long since vanished. After the talk he gave in the gymnasium, he went over with some of the WGIR staff (all students), and held forth for an hour or so. He was wonderful with us, totally funny, totally a gentleman, totally approachable, just the best you can imagine. Of course we were thrilled to death. No entourage. After his talk, he just walked over to the WITR studios with us.
