As a newspaper columnist for The Vancouver Sun, and a radio personally, Jack Wasserman (1927-1977) reported on Vancouver nightlife, celebrity culture, and local politics. Through interviews with guests including Nina Simone, Richard Pryor, Dusty Springfield, Eric Burdon and Tommy Douglas, Wasserman shared with his audience the cultural pulse of the 1950s and 1960s. He is memorialized by "Wasserman's Beat", the officially renamed stretch of Hornby Street once home to The Cave nightclub, one of his regular haunts.
