Profile:
Robert Craig is Bill Jacocks. He used this pseudonym in 1969 for writer credits because he was a new reporter /newscaster at NBC's WKYC-TV3 (Cleveland, OH) and his news director told him (erroneously) the company did not allow its on-air talent to use their real names on non-NBC projects.

Robert Craig is Bill Jacocks (me). I used this pseudonym in 1969 for writer credit because I was a new reporter /newscaster at NBC's WKYC-TV3 (Cleveland, OH) and my news director told me (erroneously) the company did not allow its on-air talent to use their real names on non-NBC projects.
I wrote "...Different Drummer" and even named the group, but did not do the arrangement for either side of the record, so the fictitious Bob Craig, alias me, should only get a credit for writing the A side song
Arnie Rosenberg,who had been a colleague at NBC, did the audio engineering on this record as well as the 4 tracks on
my Fly-By-Nite Record(s) label.
This,btw,is a comment. If a review I'd say: "Great,etc." with
a bit of bias acknowledged.
