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.

A landmark in music history is established on July 9th when Bill Haley‘s “Rock Around The Clock” reaches number one on the Billboard chart. Many music historians will eventually acknowledge the song as a dividing line, separating Rock and Roll from everything that preceded it.

Pat Boone releases his cover version of Fats Domino‘s “Ain’t That A Shame”. Domino’s recording reached number ten in the US while Boone’s version went all the way to number one.

After the June 30th trouble at Asbury Park, Bill Haley And His Comets are denied permission to play at the Roosevelt Stadium in Jersey City. A city ordnance was passed that read: “Rock and roll music encouraged juvenile delinquency and inspired young females in lewd bathing suits to perform obscene dances on the city’s beaches.”

Dick Clark made his debut as host of Bandstand on Philadelphia TV station WFIL. He took over from Bob Horn, who had been charged with driving while intoxicated during a highly-publicized police crackdown. The show’s name would be changed to American Bandstand when it went to ABC-TV in 1957. Clark relinquished his hosting duties in 1989 to 26 year-old David Hirsch, but the program of 37 years, ended within a matter of months. 

Unexpectedly Elvis, Red West, Gene and Junior Smith and Arthur Hooton, showed up at June Juanico’s house in Biloxi.

The Beatles‘ “Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band” started a 23 week run at #1 on the UK album chart. The LP also topped the Billboard Hot 200 chart for 15 weeks, won the Grammy Award for Album of the Year and would eventually sell over 30 million copies world wide. Ringo Starr would later comment: “a bunch of songs and you stick two bits of ‘Pepper’ on it and it’s a concept album. It worked because we said it worked.”

After selling over 356,000 copies in the first three weeks after its release, “A Whiter Shade Of Pale” by Procol Harum tops the UK chart. The song would peak at #5 in the US near the end of July. In 2004, the United Kingdom performing rights group Phonographic Performance Limited recognized it as the most-played record by British broadcasting of the past 70 years. The same year, Rolling Stone placed “A Whiter Shade of Pale” at #57 on its list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

At the RCA Studios in Hollywood, the Monkees began recording the Gerry Goffin-Carole King composition, “Pleasant Valley Sunday.” Micky Dolenz sang lead and was the only Monkee who did not play an instrument on the recording. The track was completed the following day.

Jimi Hendrix was denied entry to London’s Botanical Gardens because “people in fancy dress aren’t allowed.”

Chuck Berry’s album The London Chuck Berry Sessions charted on its way to #8 pop, the most successful album of his career. One side of the recording consisted of sides cut in a London studio with the Faces,  while the other side was a live and unauthorized (by Berry) recording with the Average White Band at the Lanchester Arts Festival in Coventry, England.

The Rolling Stones double album Exile On Main Street went to No.1 on the UK chart, the bands seventh UK No.1 album. In 2010, the re-released album entered the UK chart at No.1, almost 38 years to the week after it first occupied that position. The Rolling Stones are the first act to ever have a studio album return to No.1 after it was first released.

The album “Elvis Now” hit #12 in the U.K. Unlike Elvis’ other albums Elvis Now encompasses a variety of genres, including country, gospel, soul and pop. The album was certified Gold on March 27, 1992, by the RIAA and reissued by FTD in 2010 as an extended 2 cd set.

The Elvis Presley album “Rock And Roll” hit #34 in the U.K. The album was the reissue of “Rock ‘N’ Roll No. 1.”

Elvis performed at Madison Square Garden, New York at 2.30 and 8.30 p.m. where RCA recorded both shows.

While a full house yelled like wild banshees at the floor shows acts that preceded the king of rock ‘n roll, Elvis himself was pacing nervously near the entrance to his dressing room, his guitar lying carelessly on the floor. “I’m always by myself before I go on,” he said. “I’m never assured. In Las Vegas, a while ago, it was really bad. There were a lot of movie stars there, and that made it even worse.”  Ten minutes later Presley stepped onto the stage, immediately the soft-spoken kid with the nervous laugh disappeared and Elvis turned into a purple-coated musical demon who belted out songs like his young life depended on it.”
