Description
Recently celebrating his 60th anniversary in radio, Hal Jackson is one of the key figures in modern broadcasting, a man who has witnessed the emergence of Black radio as a major influence on popular culture. In this compelling self-portrait, Jackson details his historic rise as one of the pioneers of modern radio, setting new standards and breaking racial boundaries at every turn. From his efforts to establish the Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday, to his founding of the "Hal Jackson Talented Teens International" scholarship for young African-American women, to launching Ahmet Ertegun's career, Jackson single-handedly changed broadcasting -- and American society -- forever. The House That Jack Built is a compelling testament to this man's illustrious life's work.
