I was a late comer to Shep; but I was fourteen years old when I discovered him on WOR radio, which is probably about the time that most males would begin to really appreciate his sense of humor and insight into things; or, maybe I was just a late bloomer. The first show I heard was dedicated to train whistles and their meanings. He played the recordings of the whistles and explained what they signaled. He also described how wonderful it was to watch those magnificent old steamers come roaring by. I still remember Shep's gleeful enthusiasm and passion for those trains. What a great show; and what a great way to discover a master at his craft. Boy, I miss those days. Too bad he is gone.

I was born in 1963 and thats when i discovered Jean Shepherd. My father would sit us around the radio and we would listen to him on WWOR. I even got to see him live in Clinton at the mill. I wanted so much to take my children to see him but unfortunatly he passed before i could. there will be nobody who can take you back and put u into his stories like he did. I have not been able to find any of his radio shows or TV shows so if anyone can help please let me know.

I listened to his 11:15 PM broadcasts in the early 60's in my NJ bedroom with my clock radio on very low volume (I was supposed to be asleep!). ---hearing Shep's voice on the website downloads brings back wonderful memories. Was told about it by a colleague who also grew up in the NY Metropolitan area and was a listener during his formative years. Before there was Garrison Keeler and Lake Woebegone, there was Shep! Thanks!

When I was a kid, my brother and I would stay up listening to a transistor radio waiting for that opening racetrack theme song. I remember that small black radio, tucked under my pillow turned way down low so my mother would'nt hear it as I was supose to be sleeping. He would come on WOR at such an hour that is was difficult to stay up so late. Many a time I fell asleep before the end of the show. I remember my brother eating rabbit food once because of some story or other Jean Shepherd told, and another story about pigs attacking a plane in South America or some such place. You just never knew what was going to happen. Thanks for the site, it brings back memories.

I still give copies of In God We Trust, All Other's Pay Cash as gifts to friends who have never heard of Shep. But as great as Shep was as a writer he was even better on radio. I was lucky enough to have seen him in person twice in college shows. Thanks for a great website!

In the late 1950's, it was my brother who was the first to introduce me to the wonderful world of Shep's stories (Saturday morning on WOR). And, I don't think that I have ever enjoyed a story teller more than Jean Shepherd. He was the best.

What a great web site. I learn something new every time I visit. Like that Shep used to broadcast from the WOR transmitter in Carteret - my home town!! I could have "visited" him like Curt Henderson did with Wolfman Jack in "American Graffiti". Keep up the good work. And spread the news!!!

11:15 PM WOR. I could not find Shep's reading of Hell Bound Train on search. Are there no recordings? There was a lot of great listening. These came up for me: (Jim) 8-5-64 6-19-73 12-23-75

My mom (usually asleep by 8pm) didn't find out for decades that my dad let us stay up and listen to Shep on WOR at 10:15 every night. When "Wanda Hickey's Night of Golden Memories" was published, we stood for hours in line, at Brentano's in Morristown, to get his autograph. He said I was an "elegant young lady"...totally far from the case, but I BELIEVED him back then. I've also never washed my "Shepherd's Pie" shirt he autographed - a fact which probably would've had him shaking his head. I wish kids today could have someone as observant, wry, and affectionate to listen to.
