So pleased to find this site. I'm curious, though, what Shep has to do with the Calendar? I'm using your wonderful flicklives.com Timeline for my research-- and it appears to stop in 2005. Anyone know why? Thanks, Molly

I grew up in "the famous" Cedar Lake. My Husband was born in Hammond in the 60s. We had many dates at Blue Top Drive-In. Would like to know if Josephine Cosnowski was a real person. Love that Shep, his stories take me home again.

Maybe my dates are off...but I listened every night...after Long John. I remember Shep "hurling invectives." "Put your radio at the open window...volume way up. Turn off the lights...'What the hell is this with the all night party...turn down the noise...'" and other stuff he would shout as I laughed in glee. I listened every night.

How blessed I was to have lived in New York in the late 50s-60s and to be mentally stimulated by Jean Shepherd. I soon learned to temper my enthusiasm for his show. Classmates contended "this guy is a nut! No one just talks on the radio!" Was later entralled by his ramblings on PBS's "Jean Shepher's America". Would love to have a video of the episode done on a one of the last runs of the Union Pacific Streamliner City of Los Angeles. Thanks for this website!

I'm at a loss on the year I first heard Shep. I chose 55 by default. Born in 51 in Newark, one of my earliest memories was my father tuneing in. Hooked for life. In the late 60s I would attempt to get the show on the "Bounce", something you can't do with a digital receiver only analog will do. Thanks for this site, I can continue to listen to Shep, until senility turns me into a "Day Person" Mikie

flicklives is an excellent Web Site that shows a lot of Hard Work. Thank you for keeping it going. I first remember Jean's column in Car and Driver Magazine and from there to Playboy - Wanda Hickey's Night of Golden Memories. I found the book at a Truck Stop in Indiana and enjoyed the stories. I am looking for a column written by Jean in the 70's about Instruction Manuals for Automobiles - Japanese, British, German and American. It started with his assembling a new electric train at christmas where he sets the tree on fire when he instantly turned it to Full Speed when he turned it on. I will continue to search the Site for stories and columns he has written. He is so truthful it hurts because it brings back memories about out family and childhood. Thanks to "flicklives" The Shadow The Shadow Knows

What a trip down memory lane....my father was also an artist in profanity..we had a house with fuses that blew..a coal furnace with klinkers...hoosiers next store with dog and yard never cleaned..i waited 2 months for something i sent away for with a box top and my friends any myself had at least 3 sets of bullies who liked to prey upon us on the way home from school and in the school yard..i also was familiar with the flavor of several different type s of bar soap...it never ends...this was the early 1950 s in south St Louis, mo..my buddies had bb guns and i actually got a pellet gun and the 1st shot i fired in the basement using grandpa s old razor strap as a target came right back to my forhead (luckily)!!
