Show Notes - Things Shep Referred to, Dating Related, or Just Plain Interesting
This show is most likely from a different date. The other show date 11/8 is more or less confirmed through notes by Max and Goldindex
Very noisy - Both these shows had the same date. - I suspect that the second show is dated correctly, as it appeared in sequence on the masters. I'm told the great blackout was on November 9, 1965, so it is unlikely there would have been a broadcast, let alone a tape!
