Wolfman Jack

 

 

 

 

 

 

Shortly after, the Ross Revenge arrived in Solares, the first publicity for the re-launch of Radio Caroline, appeared in several Dutch newspapers, and showed a photograph of the new ship.

The announcement said that legendary American DJ Wolfman Jack would present the official opening hour live from the ship, then pre-recorded daily shows from him would be broadcast.

Wolfman Jack (real name Bob Smith), became well known through the Mexican "border blaster" station XERB. He appeared in the 1973 cult film "American Graffiti" as himself. The film, directed by George Lucas, cost approximately $750,000 to make and grossed $55 million. The financial rewards from this film allowed George Lucas to make "Star Wars" in 1977.

As part of the publicity drive, Wolfman Jack travelled over to Europe, making a number of press appearances and interviews. He also pre-recorded a number of programmes for Radio Caroline in a Paris studio.

As well as Wolfman, Tom Hardy, Stevie Gordon and Tom Anderson -all survivors of the Mi Amigo- were two young Americans, Mitch Parker from Washington and Vincenta, a female from KSAN, who'd worked with Johnnie Walker, whilst he was there. Caroline 60's deejay Johnnie was to be Programme Director of the new Caroline.
