Yep, Jack Owens drove the ladies wild…but they weren’t the only ones. In 1948, an incensed New York Herald Tribune critic wrote “I strongly object to a singer named Jack Owens who cruises around the audience singing love songs to girls. By radio this is painful; by television it is excruciating. Mr. Owens kisses the women, musses their hair, and sits on their laps. Why some irate babe hasn’t broken his neck is beyond me.” And while we’re all for artistic expression here at Sound Beat… he may have a point.
