Pro Am Golf, Letters from listeners
Airdate: 1972

WOR Show

Show Description
Salute to Philly who's welfare department paid $1300 for belly dancing lessons for a welfare recipient. Just got back from playing golf in the Tony Lima Memorial Pro Am in Florida. His partner was Johnny Unitis. Shep tells how his hits his ball into the middle of the deepest and largest sand trap he's ever seen. One of the pros, George Fazio, comes down and give Shep a few pointers. Shep hits the ball like he's told and as he climbs out of the trap he hears the whole crown cheering. He hit the ball out of the trap and 70 yards right into the hole! Shep reads a bunch of letters received from listeners whose topics include: 1) A 57 year old parrot that fights off a burglar - in Hammond, Indiana 2) A Shep Coo Coo who while stationed at Ft Knox had a friend take him up in a plane every night so he could listen to Shep. 3) A guy writes in about his concern for a friend that carries a rubber duck everywhere he goes. 4) Henry Ford gets a letter from John Dillinger attesting to the get-away power of the Ford.
Tony Lima was a golf pro killed in a plane crash July 24th 1966 near Munster, Indiana. It crashed in a pond on the golf course. Possibly a Monday show as he states he has just gotten back from the Pro Am which was over the weekend.
