Jean Shepherd
KYW Radio
circa 1953

This picture was taken around 1953 during a local Jean Shepherd broadcast on KYW Radio in Philadelphia. Many people were not aware that Jean did an area talk show on KYW. This was taken at the last show Jean did from the “Town Room” of the Sheraton Hotel, 39th and Walnut Street in West Philadelphia. If one looks very carefully at "the Jean Shepherd Show" sign, you will see a real Lily flower just on top of the word show.

Broadcast Pioneers member Bud Galow (who was Jean's engineer) said: The Cutie female whose face you can clearly see is my first wife Fay Galow. She died quite suddenly in 1989 and I have since remarried..
