The One That Started It AllSeptember 28, 2008
This is the one that started it all. The first ever rock ‘n roll concert. The inaugural Moondog Coronation Ball hosted and promoted by Alan Freed at the Cleveland Arena in Cleveland, Ohio on March 21, 1952. Freed was the host of the popular Moondog House Rock ‘N Roll Party on WJW AM Radio that aired on Saturdays. I wasn’t around then but it would have been so cool to had been there that day to watch a phenom born. Everything you need to know about that day can be found at this Alan Freed web page.
