Thanks to David Balkansky, we can now see a pin that was given out by Shep in the 50's. He wrote: "I attended several events in Washington Sq. with my kazoo, many others and of course Jean. At one of these gatherings he passed out a small, "Excelsior you fat head!" button."
A 12 minute segment of the David Letterman Show with Shep as a guest has surfaced on YouTube. He is here to promote his book "A Fistful of Fig Newtons" and tells some of the stories like 'Lost at C' and the 'Great Ice Cream Riots' as well as side tracking in his usual fashion.
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.
