AIRCHECK OF THE WEEK

Edition #1024 - Week of January 20, 2019

ALAN FREED
Camel Rock 'N' Roll Dance Party
CBS Network via AFRTS
March 31, 1956

The "King of Rock 'N' Roll" is rockin' the joint - with Count Basie!

This aircheck of Alan Freed's Camel Rock 'N' Roll Party shows the transition between the old and new of music at the time. It's a rock 'n' roll show - Toronto's Rover Boys are on it! - but there are quite a few tunes by the house band, Count Basie. Bringing it all together is Alan Freed, the Moondogger himself in his prime as the pied piper of the fast-emerging musical form known as rock 'n' roll. He died January 20, 1965 - exactly 54 years ago.

Enjoy Alan Freed with the Camel Rock 'N' Roll Dance Party on the CBS Network as carried on the Armed Forces Radio and Television Network (AFRTS) from March 31, 1956 ... in the Aircheck of the Week.

Thanks to Don Rehrer for this great aircheck!
