Wolfman Jack - Wolfman Jack 1972



Wolfman Jack was a gravelly-voiced, American disc jockey who became world famous in the 1960s and 1970s, and whose real name was Robert Weston Smith (January 21, 1938 – July 1, 1995).

Wolfman Jack released two albums on the Wooden Nickel label: Wolfman Jack (1972) and Through the Ages (1973). His 1972 single "I Ain't Never Seen a White Man" hit #106 on the Billboard Singles Charts. In 1973 he appeared in director George Lucas' second feature film, American Graffiti, as himself. His broadcasts tie the film together, and a main character catches a glimpse of the mysterious Wolfman in a pivotal scene. In gratitude for Wolfman Jack's participation, Lucas gave him a fraction of a "point"—the division of the profits from a film—and the extreme financial success of American Graffiti provided him with a regular income for life. He also appeared in the film's 1979 sequel More American Graffiti.

Kick ass cover montage too. Did his label produce any videos for any of these songs back in the day... I quickly skimmed through youtube but didn't see anything, of course this doesn't mean there weren't any.

Thanks for the memories. Wolfman Jack could be heard on radio station XERF in Ciudad Acuna Mexico. This was a 100,000 watt clear channel AM radio station that could be heard all the way to the Canadian border at night. Being in Mexico, broadcasting in English, they were outside of the constraints of the US Federal Communications Commission. In those days our parents were shocked by the things Wolfman said on the air. Of course by today's cable TV and Satellite radio standards he was very tame.
