I listened to Alan Freed every night on the radio as he played all the best Rock & Roll. I was at the Brooklyn NY Paramount Theater when the NYC Cops busted him and shut the concert show down for rowdiness but the cops were the ones that caused the riot by their actions
Rock & Roll fans of all ages will enjoy this book. Old folks like me will find it jogs our memories of those earlier golden days; and younger fans will find it to be a pretty thorough education on how it all started and the social temperature of America in the 50s and early 60s. The King is dead, Long live the King!
