WOR Show Original Airing
First Line After Theme Ends
Well good evening radio listeners. . .
Background laughter and corny music lead into a Honky-Tonk version of Stars and Stripes Forever. This theme continues through much of the show as Shep performs impressions of the American sporting scene.
He covers Football, Mets Baseball, Ice Hockey Toledo Mudhens, the Indy 500 in his mimicking of sports journalism.
He finishes up this segment with "reports" from Reuters about a notice issued by Tokyo City Hall that employees must keep their pants on during working hours, and then does an "H.G. Grubbage" spoof reporting religious news from 'here, there, and everywhere' on the BBC.
A quick story about an army sergeant who sits on his bunk every night with a set of mother of pearl handled brushes and manicure utensils.
The show is wrapped up with the subject of tattoos - making the big plunge.
Wearing transfer tattoos in school. Going to Long Branch, while stationed at Camp Wood, and ending up in the tattoo parlor.
Speaking of trouble - this is WOR AM and FM in New York
