Crime Classics 1954-02-03 31 The Incredible History Of John Shepard

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Wikipedia offers this account.  Note that he seems to have been popularly called Jack. There is some speculation that he is the origin of the British expression “Jack the Lad” (a brash or roguish person) but there doesn’t appear to be any hard evidence to support this.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

One of the sources for the Wikipedia article is the following. My incredibly short attention span makes reading difficult enough, but the language of this piece makes it an even tougher read. What I could follow is fascinating not only for its story but its use of language. Probably common usage of the time with (possibly) some slang tossed in. Maybe more 'street' slang than vernacular, I could not say for certain.

Besides all of the new background information being added isn't this the same upgraded set that was just posted to archive.org a little over a month ago? So far I haven't noticed any changes. Just curious.

We did this back at the end of 2016, early 2017. I wasn't aware of the OTRR 2019 Upgrade set. It does look to be mostly if not entirely the same source material. Wish I'd known about it before I started posting

It appears that it not only looks like my set, it IS my set. They even have an edited version of the log I created when I reviewed and evaluated the programs. Joe must have shared with someone from OTRR and forgot to mention it me. Not a conflict as most of the shows were his to share to begin with.

I think at least some of their Rocky Fortune might be based on a set Joe & I collaborated on. Many episode titles MIGHT have been changed due to some of Stewart Wright's research

As we're near the end of Crime Classics anyway, I'll carry on.

Only the AFRTS version seems to be circulating. Could use an upgrade too.
