HBJ was the first to "Break" songs by Ahmet Ertegun [HBJ's 1st radio-show "The House that Jack Built" theme song "The House that Blues Built" launched Atlantic records], the Commodores featuring Lionel Richie right up to today's Alicia Keys ...

Loved Hal Jackson on Sundays when I lived in Newark, NJ; moved to Florida in 2004 and still continued to listen to Hal on Sunday's on WBLS via radio- he will be missed. May the Lord grant peace to his family of millions.
