|Wolfman Jack from the NBC television series, Go, 1974|
One of the most recognizable voices in entertainment, Wolfman Jack, passed away on this day in 1995. If you're an older boomer and listened to rock and roll on the radio in the '60's and '70's you surely heard him at least once on one of his very offbeat programs on the Mexican "border blaster" stations, on WNBC in New York, and in syndication out of KRLA in California . If you're a youngster - under 35 - you've likely only encountered him in this clip from the 1973 blockbuster film, American Graffitti.
It would not be worth writing about the man without linking to some audio. Here is the radio master at work at WNBC in 1973. Oh yeah!
