Show Description
Shep describes the smells and sounds of the mideast while lying in the bed in his room. Listening to the radio in the mid-east. Radio stations being jammed. When you take a radio bring plenty of batteries. Don't try and get a 9 volt battery or roll of 35mm film there - it ain't cheap. Shep describes the lifestyles of the Bedowins. He describes getting all prepared to see an Arab show on a stage in a tent. To see the Arab delights, the dancing women. He sits waiting, taking in the aromas around him when finally the curtains part and three stand up comedians come on stage like Manny, Moe and Jack!
It sounds as if Shep yells at Leigh who apparently is haunting him to do the station ID and commercials: "once is enough honey, twice is too much, three times you're fired"
