Mister Rock n Roll
Alan Freed came to be a Cleveland DJ by way of Akron Ohio. He first spun records at the WJW radio station in 1951 using the name
In March 1952 Freed organized a concert which he dubbed "The Moondog Coronation Ball". Unfortunately the first Ball never happened as many more rock n rollers showed up than the arena could handle. This non-event is actually considered to be the first rock concert.
Happily enough there were many more Moondog Coronation Balls with the tradition continuing to this day. I've attended this concert and immensely enjoyed listening to the artists from the '50s and '60s. This years Moondog Coronation Ball will be on March 28th. 2009 at Quicken Loans Arena.

My father was a wise man, he gave great advice and knew more about people and their actions than anyone I've ever met in my life. One of his
favorite sayings was;
Whitewashing the TRUTH is lying, no matter who you are!
