My Uncle Bob was a buddy of Shep's. He and my Dad were ringleaders of the "Sons of the Whiskey Rebellion" whose music was often used on the show. Many of the guys in the band were fans of Sheppard. As a kid, I used to hear tales about him and the WOR show. I will let Uncle Bob know about the effort to collect info- he has hundreds of tapes of everything that was ever on the radio...a big WOR fan...thanks, Mark

I was alone on business in a motel when I saw the PBS presentation of "The Great American Fourth of July and Other Disasters." I laughed so hard I was afraid that I was disturbing the other guests. This production mirrored my life at 17 almost EXACTLY. My thoughts, my friends, my family, my band director (and drum major)... I just couldn't believe it. I searched immediately to see if it would be repeated and finally found it a couple of years later. I taped it but the tape is now unuseable. If anyone has a good tape or DVD of the show and would trust me with it I'd love to copy it onto DVD (I have the equipment) and make them a copy as well (or a copy of anything else they want) and return the original and copy. Email me and we'll set it up.

Our entire family would listen to Shep for countless nights of humor, while growing up in Mamaroneck, NY. Went to the Limelight Cafe in earyl sixties and saw one of his live shows. Got his autography. Saw the beautiful Leigh working the sound board. He was the best at what he did. I miss him.

It is great to keep Shep's work a memory alive. I remember listening late at night as a kid with an earplug and a 6-transistor radion strapped to my bed post. I recently started listening to the old shows from various in my car and on an Mp3 player and his material is as topical as ever. Flick Lives!!

HAD A GREAT TIME AS A YOUNG MAN. I WOULD LAY IN BED MANY NIGHTS AND LISTEN TOO MANY STORIES THAT SHEP TOLD. HE WAS GREAT.

Have been a Shep fan for many years. Had no idea a website existed for him! Bravo! It's GREAT! Will visit often! A note on the album: "Conquerors of the Ages," by Edmond De Luca. I have an original vinyl copy, bought in the late '50's in Homestead Fla. when I was stationed at Homestead AFB. I also have a CD of this album. Your display fails to show all of the cuts! All are there except the one labeled "Finale." Actually, the Hitler cut segues into the "Finale," thereby to the conclusion. I just thought it odd that this would be listed on my album and not yours. One of my all-time favorite albums!

Favorite Stories: Ollie Hopnoodle's Haven of Bliss, Trooptrain Ernie, Leopold Doppler and the Great Gravy Boat Riot, and Murderous Mariah. I was fortunate enough to see him live at Princeton University in the late '80's. He told three seemingly unrelated stories at one time, somehow weaving them all together in the end. The funniest bit was about playing baseball while stationed in Africa when he was in the Army Signal Corps. It was so hot that they decided to play naked. Catcher signals to the pitcher had an added dimension. I'd love to hear a version of that story again. I've read In God We Trust... several times, and watched his Jean Shepherds America series, and his show Live From the Palm Court. He taught us how to eat a pizza one night on that show, and I remember wanting a pizza more than anything that night!

I listen to Shep every night on WOR from sometime in the 60s until sometime during the 70s when I moved south. I hadn't thought much about him since his death in 1999, but recently our concert band started rehearsing for our next concert which included "The Clear Track Polka (Bahn Frei). Rememberances of Shep brought tears of emotion. Although he was 8 years older than I, our early lives were very similar - I lived in the midwest (WI) before childhood became over-organized. When I lived in NJ I saw him in the title role of "Destry Rides Again" at the Music Circus across the border in New Hope, PA. I shoulda got his autograph.

When I was a young man I liked to listen to distant stations after I went to bed. I discovered Long John Nebel? on WOR and then I happened to hear Shep because he came on either before or after Long John (I think it was before.) I'm not sure of the year but think it was around 1958.

After enjoying A Christmas Story and then reading all his short stories I discovered this site. Thanks to Jim Clavin ( I had friends named Jim and Mickey Clavin in New Rochelle, N.Y.)it was fun to read all about Shep. I'm sorry I never got to hear him on the radio as I left New York in 1954.

Although I grew up watching A Christmas Story at least once a year since its release (I was born in 1981), I only thought to look into Shep's other works this year (which the computer wouldn't allow me to input). My line of work allows me to listen to headphones constantly, which is a beautiful thing. These days I listen almost exclusively to Jean Shepherd's broadcasts, courtesy of shep-archives.com. For the past two months, I've averaged about six hours per day of Shep, five days a week. I'm a true obsessive. If anyone can top that, I'll award you...and if you're a true fan, I shouldn't have to finish that statement!

Shep is my all time favorite storyteller. 'The Wonder Years' was a shameless,blatant rip-off of the movie style but nowhere near as good. I wish some of the earlier movies were available for purchase. I would think some of them were funded at least partially by public money.
