Show Description
Playing the Kazzoo at a friend's Wedding* Shep's friend Jerry and the cameras he built and mounted on the roof to watch the street below. Shep talks about the 4th of July and fireworks. The time he set his shirt on fire when shooting off firecrackers, the time his mother burned off her eybrows when demonstrating how he used to burn the powder collected from 'squibbs'. All the kids in the area collect up all the squibs and fill half a paint can with powder - the next day 'the entire 4th grade goes to school with no eyebrows.
*This would be Bob Hall's wedding - Son's of the whiskey rebellion - as told to me by Dave Bogart from the group.]

[Jim - 9-11-2003] I was given a series of Shep's shows from June and July of 1968. I take it Bob Hall got married on Sunday June 30, 1968. On the June 29th show Shep plays "Good Old Summertime' and says this is the last free day that Bob Hall will be blowing that trombone. (About 5 minutes into the show) On the July 3rd show he brags that he is probably the only person to ever play the kazzoo at a wedding, mentioning that he just did so at a friend's wedding. (About 16 minutes into the show rightr after the commercials) *This would be Bob Hall's wedding - Son's of the whiskey rebellion - as told to me by Dave Bogart from the group.] "Memorably, he played a lot of jew's harp at Bob Hall's wedding reception in 1968; maybe some kazoo, too." [9-28-2002 - Dave Bogart]
