Read his Playboy short stories

I read a story by Gene Shepherd in Playboy many years about the trials and tribulations of a teen-age boy that I could really relate to and was very funny. Years later randomly ran across the TV movie"The Christmas Story" that I again could relate to(again, so funny) and still love watching it every year. Would like to get hold of some of his radio and/or writing material.

This is the best Shep site I have ever visited. When I think of the homework that I had to complete on the way to school because I'd stayed up late listening to Shep, or putting my radio on the window ledge and turning up the volume for an "invective" and regretting that I couldn't make it to the building of the "World's Largest Human Pyamid" at Coney Island...I miss Shep. He was the best.

I enjoy everything he did. What a bright and funny guy. I wonder why we never hear anything about his personal life...

Is there any way to get a copy of "The Star-Crossed Romance of Josephine Cosnowski"? That was one of the funniest movies we've ever seen.

Thanks to Jim for putting this website together. Throughout my "formative years" in the late 60's, I listened to Shep almost every night on a 9-transistor Philco radio sandwiched between my head and my pillow. His stories were an integral part of my youth and instilled in me a lifelong appreciation for the spoken word and a story well-told. I was fortunate enough to meet Shep at one of his Overseas Press Club conferences around 1970. Later, as a High School teacher, I would go to great lengths to find ways to work some of his written stories into my curriculum. Just as with a Hitchcock film, I always make a point to try and catch his cameo appearance in "A Christmas Story" every time it's aired during the holidays. To those of you who may also be fans of Keith Olbermann's "Countdown" program on MSNBC...have you noticed something vaguely familiar about his choice of the theme music he plays during the "oddball" segment?

First started listening to Shep's and Barry Farber's nighttime broadcasts in the mid-60s on WOR, which could be picked up fairly clearly in Philadelphia after dark. I recall three particular shows, all Limelights, I think which I haven't been able to find. One had Shep and Gasser going to an amusement park on a weekend pass after eating oysters; another involved Shep as a child being forced to drink the old man's Blatz beer after taking Fleishman's yeast to clear his skin, and the last was a baseball recitation involving Gaylord Perry's pitching, I think in summer 1966 or 1967. Later in the early 70s, when his books were available in paperback, I became even a bigger fan.
