City Slang: Jack White is an American picker

Posted By on Thu, Jan 5, 2012 at 10:23 AM

According to a statement from his Third Man Records label, Jack White will be appearing on the History Channel TV show American Pickers on Monday, January 9.

The “pickers” in the title actually has nothing to do with playing guitar. Rather, the show follows two dudes as they scour junkyards and basements looking for rarities that they can go on and sell.

So for this forthcoming episode, White allows the hosts into his Nashville-based label offices for a look around. According to the statement, “Jack drives a hard bargain with the American Pickers guys, offering personal artifacts including the actual photo booth used in The Dead Weather "Hang You From the Heavens" video in exchange for one of the most "memorable" treasures ever to appear on the show.”

Might be worth a glance.
