Rock, Rock, Rock (1956)
Sure, Dewey Phillips was the DJ that first played an Elvis record. Murry the K was the DJ known as the Fifth Beatle and DJ Quik help put South Central Los Angeles on the map. But Alan Freed was the DJ that gave that parent-scaring, high energy hybrid of Rhythm & Blues and Country it's name-"Rock 'N Roll"!
Join Alan, his bow-tie and the hottest stars of the fabulous '50s in their mission to bring Rock'n'Roll to the rhythm-starved teens in Squaresville, daddy. If you have ever seen the famous footage of a duck-walking Chuck Berry performing "You Can't Catch Me," this is where it came from. Match that with Rockabilly legend Johnny Burnette singing his classic "Lonesome Train" and look for a young Bo Diddley playing guitar for The Moonglows. So, slick your hair back, get your best gal and a couple of malts and get ready to Rock, Rock Rock!
Alan Freed, Tuesday Weld, LaVern Baker, Chuck Berry, Johnny Burnette Trio, Frankie Lymon
