The U.S. National Archives

Shep's possession of an amateur radio license opened up unique opportunities for him when he enlisted in the Army.  In this program from April 11, 1963; he tells his listeners about being assigned to a program at the University of Chicago.  That's where he got a taste of college life...and a roommate who opened his eyes to what people outside of Hammond were like.
