Major Awards Over the years Shep received many awards, nominations and tributes for his work
WOR Tribute to Jean Shepherd
October 27, 1999
Joey Reynolds (WOR 1996-2010) did a 1 hour tribute to Shep playing clips of Shep's old radio shows which had been provided to him by Max Schmid of WBAI. In all it was a poor tribute, not really expanding to any length all of Sheps accomplishments. 60 minutes was not enough time to do a genuine tribute and WOR should have been ashamed to even refer to it a such.

Think about it, friends. It's not just a possibility. It is a certainty." - Jean Shepherd - 1975
