  • He played host on a weekly TV show called "The Midnight Special" for eight years, leaving in 1982 (I B Emerson)
  • The Wolfman's name came from a trend of the 1950's when disc jockeys took nicknames such as Moondog or Hound dog. He enjoyed horror movies, so he took the name Wolfman. (I B Emerson)
