The Three Worlds of Jean Shepherd

July 15, 1969

Aired on WLIW channel 21 in New York at 8:30pm This was a 30 minute tribute to Shep covering his work on radio, stage, and writing. Not much is known about this. I recorded the audio from the show, but can only describe the video portion. The 3 worlds are 'Radio', 'Limelight Shows' and 'writing'.The show follows Shep through the moments right before he goes on the air, walking down the hall and into the studio just as his theme begins to play. Along the way he speaks about the Limelight performances and his writing as he is interviewed in his WOR office by John Wingate (?). There is even a minute of Leigh Brown describing how it was to work with Shep.
