Based on his 20+ years on WOR alone, there may have been close to 5,000 broadcasts of his shows, however there were occaisions that some broadcasts were reruns of earlier shows so the actual number of unique shows is hard to determine.

About the Database

This is a database of all the known (to me) shows that have surfaced over the years from various sources. 

Show descriptions, commercials, music and notes may not be present for all the shows listed. This is an on-going project and is updated as information becomes available. In some cases full dates could not be determined so the partial dates reflect only the known portion.

Also, some dates may not reflect the true WOR broadcast date since the person taping the show would indicate the date it was aired on the radio station he was hearing it on.. Many shows were re-run in syndication such as in Boston with a week delay for the weekday shows. The Saturday shows appear to have been played on Sundays - 8 days later. Other areas had delays of several weeks. In some cases it could be determined if the date was original airdate or syndication airdate. In those cases the dates were adjusted and a note made to the effect in the notes section of the summary.

There is also the possibility that the person doing the taping may have misdated the show

In all cases, as shows are listened to, close attention is paid for clues which may help verify the dates, repeats of earlier shows, and recurring topics


The following sources were a great help in compiling this database and my thanks to them:

Max Schmid - Schmidco Catalog
Jeff Beauchamp - Fatheadcentral CD Collection
Lowell Thelin
Gary Hines
Pete Delaney
Rich Badagliacca
Dave Post
Ken Applegate


In addition to the above there were many many fans out there who for their own reasons decided to record many of Shep's shows

Because of them we have been able to collect and digitally preserve over 3,000 of Shep's shows.
