There is an old African proverb that says, "when you are passing royalty, bow your head, and you will harvest bananas (great wealth)."
That was how I felt whenever I was in the presence of Hal Jackson. Not because he was haughty or aloof - but because he was Broadcast Royalty. Hal was open, warm, friendly, a true master of his craft; and one of the most wonderful, friendly brothers I have ever met (with the exception of his cohort, the late Percy Ellis Sutton).
