WOR Show

Show Description
It's the day before Thanksgiving and Shep starts off by talking about popcorn stuffing. "It's not only good, but you'll know when the turkey is done." A society can be determined by the gifts it gives one another. As a public service Shep spends the show reading Christmas gift suggestions from various mail order catalogs he has received: Electric earwax cleaner, Pipes in the shape of a privy, Transistor radio that looks like an orange, Plastic apple pen holder, Plastic orchid making kit, Plastic bird clothes pins, 40 inch high daisy bird bath, and lots more. 'Have you actually ever seen anyone use an electric carving knife? I knew someone who took off the knife and put a hack saw blade into it.'
1969 Giants singing "Jingle Bells" (Shep says it was the Jets, but the album is "The Giants Sing Holiday Halftime")
(14:50) Speaking of rubber crutches, this is WOR New York, of course. . .
