The Sun Records Rockabilly Era

July 10, 1954

New York radio station WINS announced the hiring of pioneer Rock disc jockey Alan Freed to be the host of their Rock ‘n’ Roll Party. As he did on his earlier Moondog’s Rock ‘n’ Roll House Party Show on WJW in Cleveland, Freed programmed records by Black R&B artists that many White teenagers had never heard before. Freed is often credited with popularizing the term “Rock and Roll”, although the phrase was first used in 1942 by Billboard magazine columnist Maurie Orodenker to describe upbeat recordings.
