Celebrity Birthday of the Day – January 21

There are few DJs, if any, who are as famous as Robert Weston Smith – better known as Wolfman Jack. Through the 1960s and 1970s, Wolfman Jack’s gravelly voice graced the airwaves from such stations as KCIJ, XERF and XERB. His trademark jive lingo and requests for his listeners to get naked made him a part of the popular culture of the time, and resulted in the Wolfman moving into making appearances in films such as American Graffiti, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, and Motel Hell, and on TV shows such as Police Story, Rags to Riches, and Swamp Thing. But forget those shows and films – it’s all about the radio, baby! Wolfman Jack died on July 1, 1995. He was 57.
