AIRCHECK OF THE WEEK

Edition #993 - Week of June 17, 2018

ALAN FREED
Camel Rock 'N' Roll Dance Party
Armed Forces Radio, June 16/56

The King of the Moondoggers is back.

This week we return to the roots of rock for the Camel Rock 'N' Roll Dance Party, hosted by pioneering jock Alan Freed. The native of Windmer, Pennsylvania, was the undisputed "King of all Media" in the 1950s, with his radio show on WINS New York, "The Big Beat" program on ABC-TV, plus appearances in many movies.

For six months in 1956, Freed also hosted the Camel Rock 'N' Roll Dance Party on CBS and rebroadcast on Armed Forces Radio. Here he is on that show from June 16, 1956 .
.. in the Aircheck of the Week!

Thanks to Donald Rehrer for this gem.


Each week we dig deep into our dusty archives for another Blast From The Past!

George Michael, WABC, July 19, 1977
