I'm very sorry to hear of Jack's passing. I sat right behind him in homeroom during our 3 years at Mellon Jr. High. We'd talk about what was hot on KQV's (later WDVE) Finest Forty. I remember one morning we agreed “She’s About a Mover” and “Wooly Bully” were good songs, but we couldn’t make any sense out of what Sham the Sham was shouting about. I never did. Looks like I’ll never know if he did either. The hell of it is Jack lived just a couple blocks away. He's given me a lesson: don't put things off. P.S. I drive my friends nuts with song trivia. Per Judy's comment below, it looks like Jack and I would've had a lot to talk about. I'm sure he'd have had me beat.
