American Hot Wax

"1959. New York City. The battleground was Rock and Roll. It was the beginning of an era. You shoulda been there."

This biography examines how popular Cleveland-based radio disc jockey Alan Freed became one of the biggest movers and shakers when it came to promoting the new music category in the 1950s known as Rock 'N Roll. The action is a slice of life of the era, filled with aspiring singers and musicians, record producers with questionable ethics, and those who flock to concerts, join fan clubs and buy records to support the latest Rock 'N Roll artists of the day.
