Barry Farber Passes Away
WOR personality who 'sent' Shep to the Amazon
Barry Farber, radio personality, who among many radio venues, was on WOR radio from 1962 to 1977 during the time Shep was on. He was friends with Shep and was responsible for Shep's trip to the Amazon on behalf of the Ludens Candy company in September 1965. Barry told the story at the "Friends of Od Time Radio" convention in 2000 while speaking on a panel with Max Schmid. You can hear that interview on this weeks replay on the Dustbin of History. Barry did his last live radio show, from his home, celebrating his 90th birthday on May 5th, the day before his passing.
