Question of the day: Was “Wolfman” Jack a lycanthrope?
LYCANTHROPE or more commonly – WEREWOLF (werʹwoolfʹ): n. Folklore, a person changed into a wolf, or one capable of assuming the form of a wolf at will; lycanthrope.**
Hmmmm … think about it … Robert Weston Smith, businessman, by day … howling, wild-‘n’-crazy, mysterious radio DJ extraordinaire, Wolfman Jack, by night. And we wouldn’t have had it any other way.
Halloween is simply not complete without a tribute to the most fun and famous “werewolf” of the 20th century.
If you missed the thrill of personally experiencing Wolfman Jack’s sometimes salacious, always deliciously irreverent howl filling your radio’s airwaves, you missed history. Of course, there are taped airchecks and replays of his vintage shows* still sold in syndication. But there’s nothing like the real thing, baby.
More on Wolfman soon, including where you can hear him again. But first, speaking of the real thing – are werewolves “real”? Owwwwwwoooo …
