About Thom Shepard


Except for a year at Indiana University, Thom has always lived and worked in Massachusetts. While he does not play any instruments well enough to perform in public, he married into a family of jazz musicians that includes his father-in-law, the great clarinet player, Sid Barbato. Thom has worked at Public Television's WGBH for many years, involved with digital preservation standards, and currently, he is a reference librarian at a DoD research lab.
His musical tastes, like his movie preferences, linger in the twenties and thirties.
