The master at work.

Jack Armstrong, slightly more reserved than we've heard him previously in his career, displays his usual perfect timing on this aircheck from near the end of his time in the Top 40 format.

The tidbits of artist information he includes on virtually every intro make this a great listening experience. Check out his intro on Out of Touch by Hall and Oates.

After KKHR, Jack had one more Top 40 stop - KBOS Fresno, California in 1988. After a few years at oldies-formatted WMQX in Greensboro, North Carolina in the '90s, he concluded his career at another oldies outlet - WWKB Buffalo in 2006.

Big Jack died on March 23, 2008 at age 62, after a fall at his home in High Point, North Carolina.
