I used to listen to him on my way home to Hawthorne NJ from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY at night. I was in the Navy but, when I listened to Shep talking about the Army,I knew he was in my outfit. THANKS for letting me get back to him.

I found Shep by accident while commuting to Pratt Institute in Brooklyn from my home in Hawthorne,NJ.I was married and going to night college. On the way home I would listen to Shep. I knew he was talking only to me. His Army stories I lived and I was in the Navy!! I would pull in to my driveway with 5 minutes to go in the show. My wife would look out the window and wonder why I did not come in. I got her to listen one night then she understood THANKS Shep.

Thank you for all the old shows. They are a Treasure! I listened to him on WOR for many years and saw him do his Saturday Night show at the Limelight once. Many years ago, I also had one of his albums (Jean Sheperd and Other Foibles), but alas, its long gone now.

The Fourth of July brings back many memories of "Ludlow Kissel et al., having heard them many times live, in the 60's, living in Bucks County, PA. The hot steamy nights and the raucous cicadas and crickets just added to the atmosphere. If there was a little 'heat lightning', it just made the reception a little scratchier. I still have a very poor recording made of one of Shep's readings of Lud Kissel, made on the 4th of either '68 or '69. One of my family's traditions is, after supper, with a cold one in our hands, we gather round the tape recorder and just listen to Shep at this very best. Shep is a legend, a wonderful story teller, and one of the most captivating humans that I have ever encountered. I am sure that in whatever after life there may be, ol' Shep has 'em entranced by his exploits, real and imagined.

I was a nut on this type of talk radio and used to listen to Don Blanding, the Hungry I, and Dave Ballard reflections when I was younger and lived in Seattle. Whne I was a kid in the early 50's, I listened to The Lone Ranger, Little Orphan Annie and the Secret Squadron (Brought to you by Ovaltine and I had a secret ring) on the radio. My son, now in his 20's listens to Christmas Story all day on TV as it is on 24 hours up here in Mt Vernon WA.

I grew up in Hammond, Indiana -- have many, MANY memories of the town. It has changed so drastically since I lived there, but my friends and I have "gone back in time" and reminisced about many of the old sights, sounds, and pictures from the site. How ironic that our town is now iconic!

Not sure if I first saw the book "In God We Trust---" or the movie "The Christmas Story". The hardcover book is difficult to find now. I have only seen one copy, which was privately owned. I may have read the Playboy articles, but was so long ago I cannot say for sure. I would like to hear the radio shows.

Love this site! I have a question about the WOR shows: How in the world did so many different collector sources seem to agree on most of the titles? We can't even seem to get this degree of co-operation in the Senate!! If anybody knows the answer, let's hear it. Brass figligees and all that to you all, and EXCELSIOR!

The first time I saw A Christmas Story as a kid I was hooked. As I grew I sought Jeans work in Playboy on the radio and in his books. My birthday is in October and for the last 10+ years starting on my birthday I watch or listen to A Christmas Story daily (sometimes two or three times) until Christmas. Then I refuse to watch or listen to it until my birthday returns again. I have burned through 4 VHS tapes and 3 DVDs. I estimate I have seen the movie 996 times and still counting. From the roar for the lion to the end of the credits is very close to 90min and I use the movie as a timer form time to time. Many people do not understand why I would watch a movie so many times. If I have to explain it, then they dont get it and never will. Hope you enjoy. Flick? Flick who?

I operated an air charter service out of Cortland NY and flew the Kazoophany (sp) Kazoo band to NY City for the "Shepard's Pie" TV show. I have been a fan ever since.
