I, like many, listened to him late at night as a kid. I lived in PA at the time, and it was difficult to dial in WOR, but I always kept my hand on the tuner to continually adjust for the best signal. I was hooked!

I grew up in Clifton, NJ and discovered Shep as a freshman at Neumann Prep HS (Wayne, NJ)in 1971. I listened to Shep EVERY night on WOR, under the covers. I would often hold the microphone of my ancient, early cassette recorder to my hand-held transistor radio to record the shows. I lost those poor recordings long ago. I build RC model airplanes and this was a common subject in his stories that I really identified with. His opening song was always a thrill. After hearing him recite the poem "The Cremation of Sam McGee" by Robert Service, I memorized the poem myself...always a hit at any campfire! A few of my Neumann Prep budies and I saw him at 2 of his Carnegie Hall shows in the early 70's. He told a hilarious story of stomping cockroaches upon entering a dark, big city apartment. A situation I would encounter many times in my early manhood...always thought back to that show and smiled. Shep embraced and shone in so many media...he would be very happy with this web presence...thanks for posting this. John "Ted" Petrowski

Read his Playboy short stories

I should have known there would be a place on the web for this guy. I used to read his stories out loud in my university dormitory. The other 18-year-old males listening would laugh so hard they'd forget the usual reasons for having a Playboy to pass around. It got so we measured the worth of a Playboy by whether it had a Jean Shepherd story in it. Honest.

great site! i first read one of shep's books around age 12, then of course have enjoyed his Christmas Story each year it comes on, and only recently began searching on the internet and ebay for Shep material. I've recently purchased some MP3 disks (and got a cheap stand-alone Mp3 player with both headphone and some cheap 9.99 mini desk speakers) and am enjoying listening to Shep at night, shutting OFF the tv! I look forward to the CD coming out with the reading of In God We Trust; a great purchase for self or as gifts! Nice site you have here! Emily : )

Hi- If anyone is unfamiliar w/ "MP3", as I was, yet you see on internet/Ebay Shep's work in condensed "MP3" format, pls be advised that even I, a non-tech person, found I could buy a cheap $20 MP3 player from any stereo store, add some cheap $9.99 desk speakers, and you can play one MP3 disk (it's a regular CD size) with TONS of shows on one disk! My $20 cheapie also came w/ headphones (I prefer the mini spkrs) and a plug-in device which allows me to listen to Shep in the car over my car speakers. Very small prices paid for many months of listening! Also see the book coming out soon, click on the link on this very website to find out about it!

Jean and I were good friends for years. I taught him how to water ski. He and his first wife used to go out with me and a couple other hams on my Chris-Craft - had cookouts on the beach at Dead Horse Inlet (across Flatbush Avenue from Floyd Bennett airport in Brooklyn) - Jean brought his guitar. We often had dinner at the Flame steakhouse restaurant before his program on WOR.

From time to time you will hear Jean talk to "Don". Don is the WOR Engineer "Don Williamson", who was married to my father's sister Marie (I guess this makes Don my Uncle somehow). He is still living at age 101 in a nursing home in St Petersburg, Fl. While I refered to him as uncle Don, the real "Uncle Don" was on WOR (Until he said on air"I guess that will take care of those little bastards") I remember seeing him broadcast from the 1939 Worlds Fair.

Seltzer bottle, you slobs! (He said with a tear in his eye) I am so glad to see that Shep is remembered in this way. The 50-killowatt smile will never be that bright again.

You hit the nail on the head. I recall falling asleep many a junior high school night with Shep under the pillow. I remember Christmas 1968 when my parents let me open one present early. It was an Ampex cassette recorder. I remember racing upstairs putting the batteries in and trying to figure out how I was going to tape a 45 minute show on a 35 minute tape. Though I don't have the whole show I can still pick up the tape and hear Shep read chapter 1 of In God We Trust. Who ever realized that a story which started with "Disarm the toy industry" would turn into a Christmas Classic or that many of my future allowances would go to Two Guys and Lafayette Radio for cassettes. (Anyone from New Jersey will rember those pre cursors of Walmart and BestBuy) Over the years many of the cassettes have disappeared others contain parts of two shows but until I found this site that was the only remaining Shep I knew. It's ashame the legend of Ludlow Kissel was never made into a summertime classic. Oh and less we forget how many of us followed Shep's direction and taped that last Palisade Amusement Park commecial. I know I have it somewhere. Out of curiosity Shep'ed hawked for the longest time a poster, I believe it was Day One. Did anyone ever buy one and if so was it really as ungodly as Shep discribed it. I will close with what Shep inscribed in the front cover of my copy of Wanda Hicky's Night of Golden Memories, To "John a true slob from New Jersey"

Shep got me through High School in Roselle, NJ. I don't remember missing a show especially the Limelight. Have some of the tapes and they brought back wonderful memories. OG and Charlie Live!
