About this title

From Booklist:

Some great rock songs have lyrics that make an indelible impression, while others impress because of their melodies or instrumentation, and still others are memorable because of their overall atmospherics, their "feel." Such is the appeal of Wolfman Jack's autobiography--its feel. The Wolfman lovingly and proudly communicates the atmosphere of the rock 'n' roll world as he describes his career--he started on a superpowerful, unregulated AM radio station in Mexico; he then landed network TV gigs, stateside disc-jockey jobs, and movie appearances; finally, he has become a contemporary icon. Station XERF, just across the border from Del Rio, Texas, reached most of the U.S. West and Midwest with plenty of radio ministries and Wolfman Jack's wild, howling shows. Always an advocate of black music, the Wolfman mixed records by blues and rhythm-and-blues artists with more mainstream rock to pioneer the parents-of-teens' aural nightmare that is now so familiar from its portrayal in numerous don't-knock-the-rock movies. The Wolfman then parlayed notoriety into fame and fame into fortune. It's a story he tells in a swashbuckling style that recalls his days in pirate radio, and although he names the names and fixes the places, it's not a rock reference but a highly entertaining peer to the finest recent rock autobiographies.
