Jean Parker Shepherd’s fictional dads–all somewhat blurry–

but that’s what nostalgia and computer-image-capture can do.

(Yes, folks, I know–no A Christmas Story II or theatrical dads.)

Jean Shepherd’s real father’s name was Jean Shepherd,

also known as Shep.

Near the end of 1964, Shep said on a program: “My father always said,

‘don’t trust anyone who uses his middle name.’

This is the Jean Parker Shepherd Junior Show.”

Happy Dad’s Day, dad.
