Do they ever show Ollie Hopnoodle's Haven of Bliss on Disney or any preium channel any more. I haven't noticed but I wonder if it is in syndication on cable channels, pbs or locals? I haven't seen this movie before and I have never saw it on dish network before unless I missed it because I didn't know the excate name of the sequel that was made for pbs.

1964 is a guess. Like most people, I stumbled on him on WOR one night, and was instantly hooked. I listened to him faithfully for about 5 years, and then went on to college, the Navy, etc, and hadn't heard him, until recently, in about 30 or 35 years. It is a godsend to be able to hear his radio shows again, and to be able to enjoy listening to Shep again in my 50's. Yesterday, I followed the link to the Museum of Broadcast Communications, and spent $15 to join, mainly to help vote Shep into the Radio Hall of Fame in 2005. I think it is a disgrace that he is not there already. This is long overdue, and needs to be rectified immediately, even if it is, regretfully, posthumously.

I can date my first exposure to Shep as 12/24/1965 and his reading of Rattling Home for Christmas when I was 15. I was in bed tuning around on my Sony 8 Transistor radio, a gift from my Grandfather who had passed away a couple of years earlier when I hear "it". I haven't been the same since. I didn't realize it was a regularly scheduled show until a couple of weeks later when I heard Shep again, this time reading Robert Service. My sone gave me me 746 of Shep's shows on a pair of audio DVDs in MP3 format for Christmas last year. I had to install a DVD drive in the computer to play them (my DVD player will play CD MP3s but not DVD MP3s) but I've got them now. What a circle, first heard Shep on a gift from my Grandfather and now am listening to him again on a gift from my son.

I am wondering..i have heard several people tell me about Shep sometimes doing trivia on his shows and that there was a specific name that he had for it. If anyone could help me figure this out, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
