Jay Mack was a rising young jock at KIMN Denver in 1964 in the midst of Beatlemania. Then the bottom fell out.

Just one week before he was to introduce the Beatles on stage, Mack was involved in a serious car crash near Denver. The accident caused serious injury to himself and his travelling companion, KIMN receptionist Judy Danknich. Mack struggled with speech difficulties after the accident and his recovery was a lengthy one.

Mack eventually returned to KIMN not once, but twice. He was fired amongst a mass layoff in 1971. He quickly returned to the Denver airwaves on KTLK and KDEN, and also jocked in Salt Lake City and Kansas City.

Jay Mack died in 2002, aged 65.
