Kids like classic rock, and so do adults.
I looked real Neanderthal. I could have been Mexican, I could have been black; I could have been anything.
When I started at XCRF in 1960, Mexico was the most lenient country in the world when it came to radio.
I’ve got that nice raspy sound.
I’m not crazy about the rap thing. Or house music.
A little mordida, here. A little mordida, there.
I am just a little tired of the Stones and the Beatles, and I don’t care if I ever hear ‘Louie Louie’ ever again.
I’m very rich – in friends. I’m too nice a fellow. I give most of my money away.
Some people said my acting was a cross between Euell Gibbons, Rodney Allen Rippy and Sheena, Queen of the Jungle.
I appreciate folks asking for my autograph.
The one thing I’ve learned, getting out to all those foreign and domestic locales, is that people in every country of the ‘civilized’ world wish – either secretly or openly – that they had the expressiveness, the flair, the I’m-so-glad-to-be-me spirit that black folks have made a part of American life.
I taught myself to tune in to another person’s wavelength, figure out what they were looking for, and try to project that thing back at them.
I want to go back to the format that radio started with rock n’ roll, with country artists and rhythm and blues with that oldies type feeling. I want to put it all together and create a Top 40 of rhythm and blues and country and straight blues with Wolfman at the reins.
I figure the oldies are real close to what rocking country use to be.
I don’t want people mistreating me. I found out when you’re vulnerable and your heart’s open, then people step on you. You’re really stupid for letting that happen. And the only way to counteract that is to be like Wolfman Jack. Because if you do nice, kind things for people, then how are they going to mess you over?
