He was posthumously awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for Radio at 6381 Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, California on December 10, 1991.


Posthumously inducted into the National Radio Hall of Fame in 1988.


Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a charter member in 1986 under the category Non-Performer.


Was arrested and pleaded guilty to accepting "Payola" (bribes for playing certain songs). He was blacklisted from broadcasting and died broke and bitter in 1965 at age 42.


He returned to New York in 1961 to host a "Twist" review at the Audobon Ballroom. The event was not well publicized at the time, as he had lost his New York City radio (WABC) and television (WNEW) programs in 1959 due to the payola scandal. Attendance was poor. In essence, he had lost his fan base to relative newcomers, disc jockey "Murray the K" and television host Clay Cole, who by that time, were hosting well publicized R n R shows in the New York Tri State area.


After being fired from WABC radio and WNEW-TV in 1959 for refusing to sign a statement that he did not accept gratuities for the playing of records, Freed worked for KDAY radio in Los Angeles (1960). All went well at first. Ratings were good but he left when the station would not allow him to promote live rock shows.


During the summer of 1957, he hosted "The Big Beat", Saturday nights on ABC. The show featured live (as opposed to lip sync) performances of many of the top Pop and Rock recording artists of the day, including Frankie Lyman and Sal Mineo, who had a hit with "Start Movin' (In My Direction)". The format was similar to Freed's R n R theatrical revues. As of 2012, there appears to be no film (kinescope) available of these landmark broadcasts. Videotape was not introduced until 1958.


Worked as a disc jockey at WJW in Cleveland from 1951-1954 and hosted the late-night "Moondog Rock 'n' Roll Party". In 1952, he promoted the "Moondog Coronation Ball" widely regarded as the first ever rock concert.


Legendary radio disc jockey in the 1950s who helped popularize the term "Rock and Roll" music.


Alan Freed was born on December 15, 1921 in Johnstown, Pennsylvania, USA as Albert Alan James Freed. He was married to Inga Boling, Marjorie Hess and Betty Lou Bean.
