About the Disc Jockey / Emcee
Jack was not only an announcer at WLS, including the
National Barn Dance, but also the leader in Morning Devotions. At
one time, he had studied for the ministry.
They said he always had an interest in people and their problems and
was often heard around the studio... 'let me read you a
paragraph from this letter.'
Later on around 1947, he was married to "Christine", otherwise
known as the Little Swiss Miss on the National Barn Dance.
He not only announced on the National Barn Dance, but did many
other programs and was in 'demand' for things such as dramatic
productions that required a 'special interpretation'.
