One of the most recognizable voices in local radio has been silenced.
WBSM's Jack Peterson passed away Tuesday evening at Hathaway Manor in New
Bedford at the age of 70 after a brief battle with pancreatic cancer.
For over 50 years, Jack, whose real name was Joel Polonsky, broadcast
throughout Massachusetts, beginning his career as a disc jockey at WLLH in
Lowell, and shifting to WNBH in 1980. It was there he earned the nickname
"Captain Jack", serving as a morning show host for a number of years along
with his wife, "First Mate" Lynne.
