Legendary ?Superjock? Larry Lujack dies at 73 - Chicago Sun-Times

Larry Lujack was a cowboy who lassoed the heart of a generation.

The popular WLS-AM and WCFL-AM disc jockey died Wednesday night of esophageal cancer at his home in Santa Fe, N.M. He was 73 years old.

Mr. Lujack’s plainspoken manner was the compass for Chicagoans navigating the rapid musical and social changes of the late 1960s and 1970s. He loved to wear tattered brown cowboy boots, a cowboy hat and blue jeans.

Mr. Lujack was a staunch individualist whose on-air sarcastic demeanor set the stage for the “shock jock” movement. He engaged his audience with bits like “Animal Stories” with his snot-nosed disc jockey buddy Tommy Edwards; “The Klunk Letter of the Day,” and he was way ahead of his time with the “Cheap, Trashy Show Biz Report.”
