I greatly enjoy the site. I always wanted to meet Shepherd, and now that opportunity will never come. It's good to have a place to check into now and again. Thanks.

One of my high school English teachers was a tremendous fan of Shepherd. Occasionally, he would read us short stories from Wanda Hickey's... often drawing tears of laughter to his own eyes and facination from our minds. I profess to have watched 'A Christmas Story' back to back, on TNT Christmas night. I never really get tired of it. Rest in Peace, Jean.

When I was a kid living in Jersey my Ma used to listen to WOR on a funky old black kitchen radio. I was mesmerized. Shep, rambling w/ Gambling, and the Fitzgeralds who just oozed culture and glamour, at lest to a 7 year old kid. When we moved to Vt in the late 50s we could still pick him up as I recall. Alas soon my teenaged interests turned to rock & roll and I was hooked on late night WPTZ and WKBW. The Joey Reynolds Show! I was in heaven!

As a kid I lived in Penna. with my Mom, and the only radio station she listened to was WOR. We were both Shep fans, and listening to his shows was always a treat. By the time I was in college in the early 1960s I was a ham operator and after looking up his address in the Callbook I actually went into NYC in an attempt to pay him a visit. By some luck I was able to get past the doorman in his apartment and call him up on the apartment annunciator in the lobby. We had a brief talk wherein he said he'd love to invite me up but he'd just been to the dentist to have a tooth extracted and wasn't up to having visitors. (True? Who knows. At that point the doorman caught me and I was quickly escorted back outside.) Sadly I never got to contact him on the air, but a ham friend did. My friend got to tell Shep about his surplus output meter on his homemade amplifier. The meter, purchased cheap at a fleamarket, had a scale that read in "Percentage of Fat"- "100% Fat" was full power out. Shep got a good laugh out of this, and I'd like to think he managed to work that into one of his wonderful stories at some point. Shep, you're sorely missed. Keep your knees loose wherever you may be!

I remember listening to Shep with my older brother (who controlled the radio in our room). I rediscovered the old shows recently and listen to mp3's of him every night-just like the old days!

I loved Shep from the very beginning. I ran down and bought the first four tickets sold when he came to The University of Pennsylvania one year. I got to meet him there. I read everything he wrote in Playboy. Recently, I obtained the CD's from link on this site's home page. I now listen almost every night to his broadcasts. "A Christmas Story" is required viewing every year at my house. He was truly one of a kind!

I was raised in Kearny, NJ. My amateur radio mentor WA2KRN told me about Shep's radio show on WOR and I listened to his show from then on. I always wanted to go to the Lime Light and see the Saturday show live, but never made it. I did get to meet Shep a number of times at diferent ham-fests in New Jersey. I have two son's and they have read some of the books I have passed down to them. I will always remember spending Christmas at my siter inlaws house the year she got married, and finding that the one thing her new husband insisted on at Christmas time was watching "A Christmas Story" Thank You for a wonderful web site, i look forward to spending some time here.

I stsrted listening to him on WOR out of NYC when I was a kid. I introduced my father to him with a story in Playboy. I still hear his voice when I read his books. A great American storyteller.
