Shep's Favorite Music

"I'm Not A Disc Jockey!"
Although he had a rocky start in his career because of his refusal to play records, Shep used to play a lot of different music on his shows as an underscore to what he was saying at the time.

I am still compiling this list and trying to identify some songs - Notes
