I have read several short stories & seen on PBS both the "Christmas Story" and the "Fourth of July". My favorite character is "Ludlow Kissell". I had a run in with Jean Shepherd in my younger years, when I worked for an Aviation Insurance firm & our company sent him a cancellation notice on his policy (Jean was an avid pilot). When they addressed the mail as Ms Shepherd he wrote back in grease pencil that we were stupid not to know tha Jean was a french name for John...He is one of my favorite humorists & was saddened to learn of his passing!

I'm amazed at how many people there are that recall the same experience I had as a kid of listening to Jean Sheppard's storytelling on WOR in the dark on an AM radio. At that time I also read his books and attended a book signing around 1971 in my home town of Morristown New Jersey. My older sister and I got signed copies that day of "Wanda Hickey's Night of Golden Memories" and "In God We Trust..." . What a great talent, he is missed.

I listened at night to Shep on Wor Radio in NYC and he intrigued and mystified me. It was as if we were placed back in history in the 30's and 40's when Radio was King and imagination painted a picture.

The Old Man listened to Shep every night on WOR-710, and it wasn't until I went to high school that I discovered Shep, and realized to my horror that The Old Man was HIP! He also turned me on to Bob & Ray, who spent afternoons on WOR while I was in college. In those Vietnam War years, with The Old Man on Nixon's side and me against it, our love of Shep brought us closer together. I went on to a career in broadcasting --first radio, then TV, now back to radio. And it was hearing NPR's replay of Shep's March On Washington molologue a few weeks ago on "All Things Considered" that led me to this site. Since I discovered Flick Lives.com, I've been laughing out loud at my computer, catching up on all the Shep stories I'd forgotton or never heard. Thanks for Flick Lives.com, and thanks, Shep.

I was thrilled to find this site... which I stumbled upon, trying to find out what my yellowed copies of Krassner's Realist magazine were bringing on Ebay these days... Yah, I was a WOR addict... and my insomniac nights with Jean Shepherd ( and Long John Nebel ) were as much a part of my upbringing as wasting baseball cards in bicycle spokes and playing catch in the backyard... dreaming I was one of those short-legged Yankee relief pitchers they managed to come up with... Jean Shepherd was a seminal influence on me... and when people accuse me of "being vaccinated with a phonograph needle"... they have Jean Shepherd to blame for my tendency to ramble... long may he wave...Ragtime Cowboy Joe... is rarely heard on the electric radio anymore... y'know...
