Show Description
Shep warms up playing "You are my Sunshine" on the Jews Harp. A salute to state Senator Robert F. Dean of Maryland who during a speech before Centerville High School students, had his pants fall around his knees. Pulling them up he kept going. Shep goes to a Broadway production and a girl on the stage right in the middle of a romantic scene has her panties drop to the floor. Shep talks about playing Mephistopheles in the play a "Banquet for the Moon". He recites a whole scene from the play and then tells about the time he was playing the part with his fly open. News note: In Miami, someone smears a woman's car with spaghetti sauce and meatballs after she did a radio panel discussion about crime and the mafia. He tells about the time he was watching a panel discussion one late night at the studio which became very heated until one of the panel members had enough. He got up, walked to the corner of the room and "made a nuisance of himself" before leaving. Going out to an important lunch and having his pants split in the restaurant.
