Shemon & Sheppard – In The Afternoon

Weekdays 2pm-6pm

Actress Carrie Fisher was born on this day in 1956. So let’s NERD-OUT and do Princess Leia Trivia on Wiki-Pete-ia on the Shemon and Sheppard Show .

In case you are not fortunate enough to be lucky caller number nine at 239-337-ESPN, then you are in luck!  Play at home and dazzle your family!  Stump your co-workers with useless knowledge!  Amaze your friends with your newfound intelligence!  Below are the actual questions AND ANSWERS heard during Wiki-Pete-ia on our show.

Speaking of nerding out, I cannot think of two bigger nerds that Pete and Chris. They love this kind of geeky minutia about sci-fi and super hero films. So since our phones have been down since the hurricane we have been pitting those two against each other on Wiki-Pete-ia on the Shemon and Sheppard Show.

Carrie Fisher was so popular from her portrayal of Princess Leia in the Star Wars movies. But she seemed to have a difficult life, facing numerous substance-based demons. In the end, her life ended too early in 2016, at the age of 60, having suffered a heart attack on a flight from London to LA and died 4 days later.

But let’s remember the good times and do Princess Leia Trivia on Wiki-Pete-ia!

Good luck to you!
