Recorded live on 580 KFXD-AM on September 2, 1971
"Wolfman Jack" appeared live on KFXD-AM from 7:45-9:00 P.M. on The Jerry Rohnert Show to help promote the "Wood River Valley Rock Festival" held Labor Day weekend of 1971 in Bellevue, Idaho (near Sun Valley). Wolfman was the Festival's Emcee and the band Pacific Gas & Electric and pop singer Oliver were the headline acts. As you will learn, the Festival was a flop, but Wolfman's KFXD broadcast promoting the event was fabulous, as you will hear on the tape, which will be played for the first time in 39 years! Former KFXD announcers Jerry Rohnert & Tom Scott have been invited to speak and will answer your questions!
For your information, Wolfman Jack was born Robert Smith and came to prominence in the 1960s as a disc jockey on Mexican radio stations, including Tijuana's XERB-AM at 1090 Kc which boomed in to the Western United States with 250,000 watts! In 1973 he appeared in George Lucas' film American Graffiti, and furnished his voice in the 1974 Guess Who's tribute, the top 40 hit single, "Clap for the Wolfman." He passed away July 1, 1995 at the age of 57.
