Austin television personality Carolyn Jackson interviews Tim McIntire about the film American Hot Wax, in which he portrays Alan Freed, the disc jockey credited with coining the term rock and roll. McIntire talks about his research for the part, including interviewing Freed's son and musicians who knew him. Conversation drifts from the upcoming film, as the two discuss events of Freed's life, his impact on radio, and McIntire's band, Funzone.

Carolyn Jackson was on the air in Austin as a daytime lifestyle show host during the late 1960s and 1970s. She began her broadcast career when she joined KTBC in 1968 as the host of Women's World, which was later renamed The Carolyn Jackson Show. In the late 1970s, Jackson moved the show to KTVV (now NBC affiliate KXAN.)

These excerpts represent a small sample of Jackson's work. The bulk of her collection is made up of interviews with Texas personalities or from Hollywood film release press junkets, but the collection also includes feature stories, outtakes, and behind the scenes clips.
