If you haven’t heard, the trucking radio giant is back on overnight radio via Willie’s Roadhouse on SiriusXM Channel 56, broadcasting Sunday through Friday in the midnight-3 a.m. Eastern time slot. A couple of years back, Overdrive Editorial Director Max Heine interviewed Mack leading into Overdrive‘s 50th anniversary coverage. Check out the two vids below, a small portion of that interview, with Mack telling the story in the first of a reptilian “gift” some haulers brought to his Ft. Worth studio in the old days.

For more on Mack and other classic trucking-radio DJs through the years, check out this story from our 50th-anniversary retro site.
