Who was Jack Pepper?
Pepper began entertaining on Vaudeville in his youth with his sisters Helen and Winnie Mae. Jack Pepper first came to national prominence in the 1920s as part of the duo "Salt and Pepper" with Frank Salt. Pepper sang and played ukulele in a style similar to that of Cliff Edwards in addition to doing comic and dance bits. "Salt and Pepper" appeared prominently in Broadway revues, made radio broadcasts, and recorded a number of sides for Cameo Records in the mid-1920s.
After striking out on his own Pepper teamed up with dancer Ginger Rogers as "Ginger and Pepper". Rogers and Pepper were married from 1929 to 1931. While the marriage was short lasting, they continued to speak respectfully of each other all their lives.
