Show Description
Shep has just recently returned from a trip to Alaska and spends the show speaking about Nome. He first plays a tape he made while sitting on rocks at the edge of the Bearing Sea. You first hear only the sounds of the waves hitting the shore and then Shep goes into a narration describing Nome and his trip from Juneau to Nome. Back live in the studio he reads Robert Service's "The Shooting of Dan McGrew" On the next taped piece, Shep goes into a Nome bar and records the sounds of the bar including a drunk who gets up and plays the piano. The last piece he plays is listening to the radio while driving outside of Nome. KICY radio in Nome. Shep says that everyone should write to KICY requesting a record to be played dedicated to someone in New Jersey or Staten Island.
