Fan Description
[ Courtesy: Ryan Priest - 02-01-2017 ] Shep opens the show with a Dear Abby column in which a mother is distraught over discovering her 15-year-old son trying on her makeup. It's not a commercial, but he goes into great detail about the Hassenpfeffer at The Blue Ribbon, a German restaurant near Madison Square Garden. Shep was made an honorary MD at Raritan Valley Hospital following a benefit performance the previous weekend. He also received a restored propeller as a gift. He later took a phone call from one of the students who presented it to him. Two stories of man versus machine: Jack Dempsey (not the boxer) versus the intoximeter Little Old Lady beats Reno slots
