  1. There’s a great story behind those Black & Brown Trading Stamps. Online accounts indicate that the scheme was started in 1969 by Oakland Raider all-star end Art Powell, with financial backing from James Brown, and was specifically targeted at African Americans. The stamps had a picture of James Brown on them, and could be exchanged directly for merchandise at participating stores across California. Not much value though…a full book of 50 pages of stamps equated to $3 in merchandise! Reportedly the scheme generated a million dollars in value in its first year, but apparently it didn’t last long.

  2. It’s turned up somewhere before now.

    It’s been on since January, 1997, and is one of the most commonly traded Wolfman Jack XERB airchecks.

    1. Yes, I agree. This air-check is not rare. It’s a goodie though. is an excellent website with thousands of air-checks including some from Wolfman!

  3. I was growing up in Escondido Ca ive heard many Wolfman Jack radio shows back in the mid 60’s I any one was living in Escondido , San Marcos Or Vista feel free to contact me Ok By

  4. It is truely great to hear Wolf. Don’t get me wrong,
    I liked him, but it was amazing how bad the structure
    was. Several breaks pass, and no call letters given.
    Rolling into spots and no calls, etc. Fun to hear though.

  5. actually it would have been the ops at the station they had reel to reels with his voice then the songs and the jingles so blame it on them,,,,,,,

  6. XERB would boom into the Pacific Northwest at 1090 AM when KING-AM would go off the air at midnight on Saturdays.
