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.
Thanks to Donald Rehrer for this gem.
Each week we dig deep into our dusty archives for another Blast From The Past!
