John Andrew Davey (8 February 1907 – 14 October 1959), known as Jack Davey, was a New Zealand-born singer and pioneering star of Australian radio in the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s. Jack Davey was born John Andrew Davey on 8 February 1907 and educated at King's College, Auckland. Davey was the second son of Union Steam Ship Company captain Arthur Henry Davey and his wife Ella May, née Hunter.
Abandoning his singing career, he adopted his trademark greeting of "Hi Ho, Everybody" and became Australia's highest paid and most popular radio performer, as a writer, producer, and host. He was a notorious gambler, and those close to him say he often spent money more quickly than he could earn it. But he was always confident of his ability to earn ever-increasing amounts to maintain his expensive lifestyle.
Jack Davey was a New Zealand-born singer and pioneering star of Australian radio in the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s. Davey arrived in Sydney in 1931 aboard his father's ship, and decided to stay in Australia, and started his radio production company, Jack Davey Productions Lmt. Peter Luck writes: Within two hours he had found himself a flat with a harbour view in fashionable McLeay Street, and borrowed £2 from his landlady.
I'm a Linux sysadmin by trade and a serial distro-hopper in real life (currently on an Arch and Manjaro diet as recommended by 8/10 nutritionists ) And I'm from London (England) just in case you wanted to know, if you didn't then I'm still from there but you care a little less about that statement. May not be an actual fact. I am very pleased with what I can do with it. Thanks for taking the time to introduce yourself and WELCOME to the community! We are happy to have you with us! Cheers.

Jack Davey was born John Andrew Davey on 8 February 1907 and educated at King's College, Auckland. After leaving school, Davey worked in the haberdashery department of a large store, but left after a close friend and workmate died after falling down an open lift shaft. He was also variously a signwriter, used car salesman and assistant stage theatre manager. In mid-1959, X-rays revealed a small cancer in his right lung, but Davey went on with his work, including a trip to the United States to look at advances in television. Further tests, several weeks later, revealed the cancer had grown, and Davey was moved to hospital.
