Jack Ellery was a radio DJ for WCTC AM in New Brunswick, New Jersey, during the 1960s. He helped the radio station gain popularity throughout the late 20th century by using his influence to promote various community service projects. For example, Mr. Ellery recalls helping Byron, a boy with cerebral palsy, where he raised money to buy a wheelchair and a wheelchair accessible van with entrance ramps. Ellery was also instrumental in creating recreational space and a concert venue for teens and young adults that featured acts like the Jersey Boys, Randy and the Rainbows, and Martha and the Vandellas. Citizens of New Brunswick could even get married at the venue. Jack Ellery had the unique talent of keeping in touch with his largest listener demographic, Hungarian immigrants, while at the same time appealing to the city's population as a whole. Doing so allowed him to create and maintain a close sense of community.
