Cadillac Jack is set free

WXTU in Philadelphia used to have an afternoon personality named "Cadillac Jack", who had been with the station for 6 years.

Today, the station's website's "on air staff" section has a gaping hole between 3pm and 7pm. No mention of Caddy or his alter-ego, Tom Kapsalis.

What happened to CJ?

I noticed the lack of Cadillac Jack. I guess I am a bit slow, but he was vacation a lot, so who knew?
I would be interested in finding out where he is now (as in working) if anyone finds out!
Thanks!

I had been listening to CDs for a few weeks and switched back to my stand-by, WXTU, the other day when Racal Flatts was in town. To hear Chris Stevens was the host for this big event, not Cadillac, made me realize something must be up. Chris is a nice guy, but Cadiallac has the national prominence. Where did he go and what happened?

I think Cad's ego got the best of him.

I really miss cadillac in his time slot and he gave the station a real reason to listen. And his ego was just fine. Personally he was a great guy and did alot of good things for good causes. I know where his is in the morning slot at a new country station in Mobile Alabama. they are working on the web page and the station will be playing the shows on the web so keep checking www.kicks1041.com

Cadillac Jack Returns To Beasley
As ALL ACCESS reported this morning, former WXTU/PHILADELPHIA
APD/MD/afternoon star CADILLAC JACK is headed back to a major market.
Most recently, CADILLAC was doing mornings at CUMULUS Country WYOK
(KICKS 104)/MOBILE. Well, he's reuniting with his old friends at
BEASLEY as he heads for SIN CITY and Country WYCE (COYOTE)/LAS VEGAS
for afternoons.

"I'm thrilled to be back with BEASLEY," said CADILLAC. "BRUCE, BRIAN
and GEORGE BEASLEY have been great to me. They've always treated me
really well, so this just makes total sense for me. I'm looking
forward to helping them do great things in VEGAS." 9/18/2006

I heard there was a little car accident that WXTU was not to happy about. He possibly indulged in a couple of alcoholic beverages and left Prospectors one night. Then a stoped car on Rt 38 Bam!!!!!
