x-post from the Hal Jackson obit:

"Born in Charleston, S.C., Jackson grew up loving sports and school. He attended Howard University and made his way onto WINX by finding a white company to sponsor him and not telling the station owner who the announcer would be."

i always think it's weird when people post really famous RIPs on this thread when it's pretty certain they're going to get a dedicated RIP thread. or is this thread just supposed to be a comprehensive list of dead celebs? i guess i don't understand what this thread is for.

Thought it was for people who might not be well-known for their own thread but could also be used to announce and link to standalone threads for more famous persons.
