American Graffiti is a great film. It's the movie that put George Lucas on the film map. The story is actually based on Lucas' teen years growing up in Modesto, California during the 1950s. And Wolfman Jack played a key role in both the movie and the music scene of that era. The Wolfman's real name is Robert Weston Smith. He was a famous disc jockey known for  his gravelly voice. What he credited for his success was: "It's kept meat and potatoes on the table for years for Wolfman and Wolfwoman. A couple of shots of whiskey helps it. I've got that nice raspy sound."
