Samuel Beckett - "Krapp's Last Tape"
Keeping a diary vs keeping tape recordings
1,000 years from now the things that people ignore today will be studied by historians and archeologists to reconstruct events.
Plays old tape of his show from April 26, 1959 (Jim Macolier (Eng) was going through old tapes)
Signing each other's yearbooks - one listener writes in that the teacher he most hated signed his yearbook "Best Wishes - Flick Lives".
Shep talks about his favorite radio show Vic and Sade and recalls one of the episodes where Vic gets an article he wrote published and they spell his name wrong and use the wrong photo.
Shep tells of the time he got his yearbook and his piucture and that of another girl named Shepherd were switched.

Stewart Wardell Matson -- born in Chicago on September 7, 1903, to Samuel Matson and Sylda Christina Kittleson, both natives of Norway -- was living in Chicago in 1930 with his wife of two years, Margaret. He was then employed as a serviceman for a refrigerator company, although he had probably already received his four-year college degree. By the mid 1930s, the Matsons moved to Jackson Avenue in Hammond, where they started a family, and Stewart joined the faculty of Hammond High School as a physics teacher. Within a few years, the Matsons and their three young children (Stewart Jr., Donald, and Marjorie) had moved to larger homes in town. By the end of the 1940 academic year, the family -- along with Sylda Matson, Stewart's recently widowed mother -- settled in La Mesa (San Diego County), California, where Stewart had obtained a new high-school teaching position. By the conclusion of the war, Stewart joined the expanding faculty of San Diego State College, where he was a physics and mathematics instructor. Stewart Matson passed away in San Diego on April 28, 1958.
