The show's skyrocketing popularity soon enabled him to quit his shipyard job for
a full-time radio career.” Radio announcers like Cactus Jack provided the link
between the local music scene and the big-time country music industry that was
emerging in the 1940s. By playing his treasured Bob Wills records “for breakfast,
dinner, and supper,” Cactus Jack helped build a West Coast market for
professional western swing bands from Oklahoma and Texas. Beginning in 1943,

Rush never pandered to supposed working-man music fans with simple riffs and
even simpler lyrics. And in the digital age, there are no phone-captured rants of
drunken band members mucking about onstage. Breaking so many rules

After tours of large stadiums, opening for hard rock bands like the Texas-based
ZZ Top, they were signed to Chicago's Phonogram Records and released Fly By
Night (1975), which reflected their heavyrock/bar-band stage. In the following
year, with 2112, Rush established their own hybridized style. That style can be
characterized as hard-rock “power chords,” virtuoso guitar solos associated with
heavy metal, relentless percussion, epic lyrics derived from fantasy literature,
