Alan Freed Radio Studio Is Commissioned
Publish date:

Radio insiders, members of the Alan Freed family and VIPs took part Saturday in the commissioning the new radio studio at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland.
To showcase the life of the legendary DJ, an exhibition, "King of the Moondoggers," was put together with the support of the Freed family. Daughter-in-law Judith Fisher Freed, representing the family, cut the ribbon to officially open the studio.
Director of Curatorial Affairs Howard Kramer said, "Without him, millions of people... would not have known rock and roll as we know it today. His influence was massive."
The newly renovated studio, now the Alan Freed Radio Studio, is available for free to stations that wish to do remotes from the Rock Hall. It was reconstructed through the support of Broadcasters General Store and manufacturers including Studio Technology, Logitek, ENCO Systems, Comrex, Gepco, Shure, AKG and Auralex Acoustics.
Rock Hall Donor Relations Manager John Grayson said Radio World Associate Publisher John Casey "has been a champion of this project since its inception." He credited Casey with the idea of naming the studio for Freed. Radio World is a corporate sponsor.
