Chanteur country US né en 1921 à Leon (Texas). Il fut Disc Jockey sur KNUZ de Houston (Texas)
1955, Cowboy Jack Derrick was working at KNUZ in Houston, Texas. He hosted a
show called the "KNUZ Corral" each day from 11:00am to 1:25pm, Monday through
On Saturday night, he would sing and do comedy as well as part of the KNUZ Saturday Night Jamboree. To finish off his weekends of personal appearances, he performed at the Magnolia Gardens on Sundays where they did outdoor shows.
In late 1954, Biff Collie and Jack wrote Martha Ferguson of Pickin' and Singin' News that they had a 'homecoming' type of show lined up for their Christmas Jamboree show over KNUZ. Texas Bill Strength and Arlie Duff were to make appearances.
In May of 1955, we note that Jack wrote a letter of encouragement to the new publication, Country & Western Jamboree to help disc jockeys like himself keep up on the news.
In the summer of 1955, Jack wrote one of those regional roundup columns and gave us some insight into the KNUZ Saturday Night Jamboree show. It was held at the City Auditorium and broadcast every Saturday night from 8:00pm to 11:00pm. At that time, he told readers some of the members of their cast were Link Davis, Sonny Burns, Floyd Tillman, and, Burt and Charley. The show would also include guest appearances by other acts who were probably making appearances in the area and included such names as Red Foley, Tex Ritter, Eddie Dean, T. Texas Tyler, Tommy Collins and Jimmie Davis.
He also told readers of another Jamboree show that he had learned about when he visited with the show's organizer, Hank Jones over in Hammond, Louisiana. That show, The Southeastern Jamboree was held on Saturday nights at the Reimers Auditorium in Hammond.
A 1955 article mentions he and his wife had two children. A son was named Autry, after the legendary cowboy Gene Autry and Dale, named for Dale Evans.
