About Wolfman Jack

Famous for his gravelly voice, which he credited it for his success, Robert Weston Smith was born in New York in 1938.

To help keep him out of trouble, his father bought him a large Trans-Oceanic radio, and Smith became an avid fan of R&B music and the disc jockeys who played it, including Alan Freed who originally called himself the Moon Dog.

Smith’s adaptation of the Moondog theme was to call himself Wolfman Jack, based in part on the manner and style of bluesman Howlin’ Wolf, and developed his alter ego for radio.
