EPISODE 3: Payola Party

Mr. Alan Freed is a man who I don't think needs any introduction.
If you need an introduction to Alan Freed then this episode is the place to start!

He was a radio DJ who pre-dates the term "Rock and Roll" .. some people even say he coined the phrase!

The Moondog himself, had a wild and energetic career as the voice of a generation, introducing many teenagers across the nation to a wide variety of different types of rhythm and blues.

Unfortunately he was caught up in the "PAYOLA" scandal.

Check out this show to get acquainted and pay your respects the man, the myth, the LEGEND!

Today's story I think of as one of those legends that needs to be shared 
  since it falls into that
 "often over looked" 
category of Rock and Roll.

This episode is about a man name Brendan Mullen and a little club called The Masque and the influence they had on the early Los Angeles punk scene circa 1977 and how they changed rock and roll forever.
