From Radio Magazine: New York, 2001 - An award-winning
documentary about the explosion of AM radio in the 50's and 60's
received a special screening at the Museum of Television &
Radio in New York City, highlighting its annual Radio Day. The
show begins when renegade white DJs first aired rhythm & blues
to white teens. “Rock 'n' roll” was coined by Alan
Freed, the first bigger-than life personality DJ. The narrative
follows pioneering DJs, then shines a light on the payola scandal
and station wars created by the Top 40 that first cracked the
DJ's power tower, as FM radio brought an end to the AM disc jockey's
reign and the antiwar movement took center stage.
