I discovered him in the '60s, long after the I,Libertine hoax.
(Edited to marvel that there are only two, count 'em: two! copies on LT)
He's achieved immortality through the movie A Christmas Story.
I used to listen to him late-nights on WOR-AM out of New York; I even saw him live, back in 'ought '72. Heck, back in the '70s, he did a monthly column for Car and Driver magazine.
So the I,Libertine story reaches me on a lot of levels: it's Shep, it's also Theodore Sturgeon, it's late-night radio (I've done radio myself...), it's mock Samuel Pepys - - and it's a goof on the America public.
