Celebrating the life of American disc jockey, Alan Freed [b., December 15, 1921 – d., January 20, 1965]. Freed is known as The Father of Rock and Roll. During a time recording artists were segregated on the airwaves, Freed was one of the first white disc jockies to blend these hip, new sounds and artists with his blood, sweat and tears.

Three hearty howls for our man, Moondog…Alan “Moondog” Freed.
