John R. never worked on the Border Blaster. But he had all the hallmarks of a great old-time radio announcer. He talked like he was black, and he was endlessly enterpreneuring. Just like that greatest Border Blaster DJ of all times, Wolfman Jack. Listen as he sells 100 baby chicks, which is one of the things that Border Blaster guys were always selling. Herbert Barrow, the hero of my novel, Friend of the Devil, would
definitely have ended up sounding like this guy, given a couple of more years behind the mic. Enjoy!
