You're running with the Wolfman, full name Wolfman Jack, the world's most famous disc jockey, a thirty-year king of the airwaves who has preached rock, soul, and rhythm-and-blues salvation to 100 million listening fans at a time, on 2,200 stations in 43 countries - and who finally, in these pages, tells the amazing story of his phenomenal life.

From his hipster roots he evolved into the enigmatic Wolfman Jack, and in the process introduced the African-American world of sexy, funny, crazy, and wise music to millions of thrilled-but-unsuspecting white listeners via some of the most powerful bandit-radio signals on planet Earth.
